Week Seven Pitcher of the Week Leaves Big Impact

Date:  Source: Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League


Our final weekly award winner to recognize this season is Evan Miller of the Cincinnati Steam. Miller was the GLSCL Week Seven Pitcher of the Week after a superb stretch at the mound.  He threw 6 1/3 innings over two games during the week. In that span, he had fifteen strikeouts and walked just two batters. Miller allowed just four hits and had a perfect ERA of 0.00. He earned the win in the Steam’s 10-4 victory over the Hamilton Joes.


Miller just completed his sophomore season at Xavier University. He made his collegiate debut with the Musketeers in a game against Florida State on the road. He threw a scoreless inning in that debut against the Seminoles – who were ranked fifth in the nation at the time. He led the team as a freshman by making appearances in 23 games. Miller comes from an athletic family – his sister was a dancer at Kentucky and his brother plays baseball for Wisconsin-Superior at the Division III level. And while he has had a high ERA so far through college – he has flipped it around since he joined the Steam.


Miller was a late addition to the Steam – but his presence certainly made a difference. He played in his first game on July 19th – after the All-Star Break. He came in for 4 1/3 innings in that game against the Joes, and the Steam won it 10-4 and Miller earned the win. After going two innings against the Settlers in a regular-season game, he would meet the Settlers again in the GLSCL playoffs. He threw two innings in that game as well – striking out three and giving up one hit. His total stats for his short but worthwhile time with Cincinnati were 8 1/3 innings pitched with 18 strikeouts, 3 walks, and an ERA of 0.00.


The Steam concluded their season after 5-9 and 1-3 losses to the Licking County Settlers in the semifinal round of the GLSCL playoffs. They had a 24-18 regular-season record. Miller will be starting his junior season with the Musketeers next spring.
