Ottawa, ON – Ottawa Titans left-handed pitcher Evan Grills has been named the Frontier League’s Pitcher of the Week for the week of July 5th-10th.

The native of Whitby, Ontario was victorious in one of his two starts, working 14 innings, allowing just two runs with one being earned on 12 hits, and striking out 19 batters.

Grills picked up his third win of the season in a Titans 4-1 win over the New Jersey Jackals on Tuesday, going six innings, and striking out seven. Yesterday, Grills tossed eight innings, surrendering an unearned run on five hits, while punching out 12. The lefty has now fanned 10-plus batters in two of his eight starts this season.

The 30-year-old Grills spent nine years in the Houston and Colorado minor league systems, making 165 appearances. Named a 2022 Frontier League All-Star earlier today, Grills is 3-2 with a 2.67 ERA in eight starts this season.

Following an off-day today, the Ottawa Titans are on the road to start a four-game series at Stade Quillorama in Trois-Rivières, with a double header tomorrow night. Following the road trip, the club returns home for the final series of the first half hosting the Quebec Capitales.
