Francis Receives Pointstreak Pitcher of the Week Honors 

Gary, IN – Gary SouthShore RailCats right-handed pitcher Harrison Francis has been named the American Association’s Pointstreak Pitcher of the Week for the week of June 5th to June 12th. 

Over the course of his two starts, the Tallahassee, Florida native tossed 12 innings of one-run ball, striking out 13 batters while walking none. 

Francis earned his first win of the season against the Lake Country DockHounds on June 7th, shutting them out with just five hits to help the RailCats secure a 1-0 victory.  He then struck out a season-high eight hitters versus the Sioux City Explorers in his next start on June 11th. 

The 23-year-old is in his first season in the American Association after signing for the RailCats in March.  The Arizona Diamondbacks selected Francis in the fourth round of the 2017 Major League Baseball Draft, and he spent four seasons in their organization. 

The RailCats return to action tomorrow at 7:05 p.m. as they take on the Sioux Falls Canaries for a three-game series at Sioux Falls Stadium.  All the action can be streamed on, 95.9 WEFM, and the Gary SouthShore RailCats Broadcast Network through the Mixlr app.
