Guthrie of Cookies & Cream Named Pitch King for Fourth Time in Career

4 Sep


The Pitch King Award is given to the pitcher who is most effective on the mound during the regular season, and Guthrie has dominated the award since the EWL was founded in 2011. Of the six EWL seasons, Guthrie has now been named the Pitch King four times, including the 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2016 seasons.

Guthrie, who holds a vast majority of the EWL single-season and career pitching records, had another dominant season the mound. He led the league in wins, opponent batting average, and complete games, and he finished second in ERA, WHIP, and innings pitched. He finished with an ERA under 4.00 for the third time in his career, won seven games for the fourth time, and finished with a win % over .700 for the fourth time in his career.

The only other player to earn the Pitch King Award in EWL history is, Reilly, of Questionable Outfit, who won the award in 2014 and 2015. Guthrie finished fourth and second in Pitch King voting those years.
