White Sox prospect Lucas Giolito named International League Pitcher of the Week

White Sox prospect Lucas Giolito named International League Pitcher of the Week

Lucas Giolito was an easy choice to be named the International League Pitcher of the Week.

Though the No. 4 prospect in the White Sox organization only made one appearance, he dazzled. The 22-year-old threw a seven-inning no-hitter on Thursday against the Syracuse Nationals, the organization that dealt him in a deal for Adam Eaton this past offseason. It was the fourth no-hitter in Charlotte Knights history, and the first since 2013.

Giolito has had his struggles in 2017 but feels he's moving past them. After a shaky start he has been stellar in his last three outings, allowing just five earned runs in his last 18 innings.

The Knights are the first team this year to have three different players win Player of the Week awards. Outfielder Willy Garcia and top prospect Yoan Moncada previously won Batter of the Week honors.

Carl Edwards Jr.'s special tie to Memorial Day

Carl Edwards Jr.'s special tie to Memorial Day

For Carl Edwards Jr., Memorial Day has a special meaning.

That's because the Cubs reliever has a very close tie to the armed services. 

Edwards met his fiance, Nette Smith, before her deployment in Afghanistan. Throughout her active service, Edwards kept in touch by writing her letters. Their relationship eventually blossomed, and now the couple has a one-year-old child. 

With Smith's army commitment finished, she views Memorial Day as a time to appreciate all those who serve. 

"To me, Memorial Day is a day set aside for me to remember some of the people I have met who sacrificed everything," Smith said. 

Watch the couple's entire story in the video above.
