Per Major League Baseball's twitter account:â†µ
@MLB: Major League Baseball Pitchers of the Month for September are #Rays LHP @DAVIDprice14 and #Braves RHP Derek Loweâ†µ
For the month, Lowe threw 30.2 innings and allowed just four earned runs. In addition to limiting runs, Lowe struck out 29 batters and walked just three. The incredible strike to walk ratio is extremely unlike Lowe but also extremely welcome. One of the main reasons for the Braves making the playoffs is Lowe's performance in September. He will start the Braves first game against the Giants and Tim Lincecum on Thursday.
