After throwing a no-hitter Wednesday night, Triple-A Norfolk Tides right-hander Chris Tillman earned International League Pitcher of the Week honors.

Tillman walked one hitter in the Tides' 6-0 victory over the Gwinnett Braves and another reached on an error.

In five starts for Norfolk this season, Tillman is 2-3 with a 4.05 ERA. The 22-year-old starting pitcher has 21 strikeouts and five walks in 26 2/3 innings.

It was the first nine-inning no-hitter in over three years in the league, and Norfolk's first since Dave Telgheder beat Pawtucket in May 1992.
