Sussex County Miners right-handed pitcher Frank Duncan was named the Can-Am League's pitcher of the week on July 8.

Duncan had two excellent outings for the first-place Miners, beginning with a seven-inning one-hitter of the Empire League Gray, in which he fanned 11 and did not allow a hit until the game’s next-to-last batter. He improved his record to 5-2 Sunday against Quebec, allowing two runs on three hits in eight innings of work, striking out six.

The San Francisco native, who also pitched a no-hitter June 13 against New Jersey, leads the league with three complete games and 65.2 innings pitched to go along with a 2.74 ERA (third in the league) and 58 strikeouts (tied for third).

Duncan is in his first campaign in independent baseball after having spent the previous five seasons in the Pittsburgh, Arizona, Colorado and L.A. Dodgers organizations, reaching as high as Triple-A. It is the second time Duncan has been named Pitcher of the Week, also earning the honors for the week of June 10-16.
