Darin Gorski of the Las Vegas 51s has been named this week's Pacific Coast League’s Pitcher of the Week.

The left-handed starter for the Mets’ Triple-A affiliate threw six innings last Tuesday and struck out ten batters, a season high for Gorski, while allowing only one unearned run on three hits to pick up his seventh win of the season. Gorski also appeared on Saturday night in a relief appearance where he threw one scoreless inning.

Gorski has had an up-and-down season with the 51s. In 17 starts, the 27-year-old is 7-6 with a 4.70 ERA and 7.2 strikeouts per nine innings, down from the 9.7 K/9 he posted last season with Las Vegas. Gorski has been with the Mets since 2009, when he was selected in the 7th round of the amateur draft out of Kutztown University in Pennsylvania.

This is the second time in Gorski’s career he has won the Pitcher of the Week honor; the last time was with the Binghamton Mets back in 2013. Gorski is the third member of the 51s to receive this award this season, joining Noah Syndergaard and Duane Below
