CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Cedar Rapids Kernels pitcher Sam Gibbons earned the Midwest League's Pitcher of the Week award this week, the team announced Monday.

Gibbons threw a complete game shutout Sunday against Kane County, as the Kernels topped Kane County 7-0.  He allowed only four hits, walked one, hit a batter and struck out nine over nine innings.

Gibbons is the sixth Kernels player this year to earn Player of the Week awards.  He joins Felix Jorge, Stephen Gonsalves, Trey Vavra, Max Murphy and Keaton Steele as the players to earn that award.
