Gwinnett Braves' right-hander Tim Corcoran has been named the International League's Pitcher of the Week for the week ending Sunday, May 26. Corcoran, the first G-Braves' player to win a weekly award this season, went 2-0 with a 0.79 ERA (1 ER in 11.1 IP) in two starts during the week.

Corcoran's first win of the week came in game two of a doubleheader against Louisville on May 20. He limited the Bats to a run on eight hits over 5.1 innings, walked three and struck out a season-high seven. Gwinnett's 5-2 win in that contest snapped a 10-game home losing streak. The right-hander sealed the award thanks to 6.0 scoreless, four-hit innings in Sunday's 9-0 win over Toledo.

The 35-year-old Corcoran is 3-3 with a 3.19 ERA (17 ER in 48.0 IP) in nine starts with Gwinnett this season. The 16-year veteran has also pitched in the IL with the Durham Bulls (2004-07) and was briefly a Major Leaguer with the Tampa Bay Rays (2005-07).

Chattanooga was also one of Corcoran's stops, for the majority of the 2009 season (when he went 4-7, 5.48 in 28 games, eight starts).

He is the first G-Braves' pitcher to win the IL's Pitcher of the Week award since right-hander Todd Redmond won on May 20, 2012.
