Kinston Indian’s starter Eric Berger is the Carolina League Pitcher of the Week. The Carolina League All-Star struck out a career high 11 batters in just six innings on Saturday, earning a no decision in his only start of the week. Berger gave up just three hits and walked two without giving up a run Saturday against Wilmington.

Berger (7-7, 2.29 ERA) has the lowest ERA among active pitchers in the Carolina League. The University of Arizona product also leads the CL with 98 strikeouts. His 106 1/3 innings pitched are the fourth most in the Carolina League this season. He also won the Pitcher of the Week award in the last week of April. Kinston pitcher Kelvin De La Cruz is the only other K-Tribe pitcher to grab the Pitcher of the Week award this season.

Berger was born in Goldsboro, NC when his father was stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. Berger moved to California when he was two-years-old.
