WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — Oregon junior right-handed pitcher Jimmie Sherfy and UCLA sophomore right-handed pitcher David Berg are among five finalists for the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Stopper of the Year Award, an honor given to the top reliever in NCAA Division I baseball, the NCBWA announced on Wednesday. The Pac-12’s two representatives are the most of any conference.

Sherfy, a 2012 Stopper of the Year finalist, leads the Pac-12 and ranks second in the NCAA with 21 saves. He finished the season with a 2.25 ERA in 38 appearances and struck out 55 batters while issuing 14 walks. A first-team All-Pac-12 performer, Sherfy held opposing batters to a .229 average and posted a pair of wins. He garnered second-team Louisville Slugger All-America consideration from Collegiate Baseball newspaper and is a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award and the Dick Howser Trophy.

Berg, the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Year, owns a NCAA-best 0.81 ERA. He is 6-0 in 44 appearances and has tallied 20 saves to rank third in the nation. He boasts a .190 opposing batting average and has notched 69 strikeouts versus seven walks. The first-team Louisville Slugger All-American pitched an NCAA-high 37.0 consecutive scoreless innings over 24 appearances in the second half of the season and is in contention for a number of national postseason honors, including the Golden Spikes Award and the Dick Howser Trophy.

Tyler Rogers of Austin Peay, Jonathan Holder of Mississippi State and Michael Lorenzen of Cal State Fullerton complete the list of finalists.

Nominations for the NCBWA Stopper of the Year Award were made by baseball sports information/media relations contacts. The NCBWA's All-America Committee will select the winner, with this year's recipient to be announced during the 2013 College World Series.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — Nine Pac-12 freshmen have been named to the 2013 Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America team, released by Collegiate Baseball newspaper on Wednesday.

Oregon State right-handed pitcher Andrew Moore, the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, headlines the class. The second-team Louisville Slugger All-American is 13-1 (ranks second nationally in wins), and his 1.22 ERA and .192 opposing batting average rank second in the league. He has tossed three complete-game shutouts this season, the most by an OSU pitcher in more than a decade. Oregon State’s Saturday starter, Moore tallied 61 strikeouts and issued 23 walks in 111.0 innings this season.

Fellow starters Ryan Kellogg of Arizona State and Cole Irvin of Oregon and relievers Ryan Burr of ASU, Garrett Cleavinger of Oregon and James Kaprielian of UCLA join Moore on the team.

Kellogg, a Howser Trophy semifinalist and a second-team Louisville Slugger All-American, went 11-1 with a 3.15 ERA. The lefty struck out 54 batters while issuing 17 walks over 103 innings en route to garnering all-conference laurels. He tossed a no-hitter against Oregon State on March 23.

Irvin, an honorable mention Pac-12 selection, went 12-3 with a 2.48 ERA and posted four complete games. The left-hander fanned 60 batters while walking 22 over 116 innings and helped the Ducks to a school-record 48 wins.

Burr earned honorable mention all-conference praise after posting a 4-2 record and a 2.20 ERA in 2013. The righty struck out 60 batters with 23 walks over 45 innings and boasted a team-low .141 opposing batting average.

Cleavinger posted a 9-0 record and picked up a pair of saves. The lefty carried a team-best 1.24 ERA and struck out 57 batters in 43.2 innings of relief. He allowed just 20 hits in 37 appearances and did not concede a triple or a home run.

Kaprielian has two saves to his credit this season and owns a 1.46 ERA. He has fanned 50 batters with 21 walks over 37 innings. The right-hander has held opposing batters to a .152 average, the lowest figure on the squad for pitchers with at least three innings of work.

Three position players, Mitchell Tolman of Oregon, Kevin Newman of Arizona and RJ Ybarra of Arizona State were also named Freshman All-Americans.

Tolman, a third baseman, hit .315 with nine doubles and 37 RBI while starting 47 games for the Ducks. He slugged .400 and finished the season with a .959 fielding percentage. Newman, a first team All-Pac-12 performer, hit .336 with six doubles, three triples and 42 RBI while starting all 55 games for the Wildcats. The shortstop stole 11 bases on the year and fielded at a .978 clip.

Ybarra hit .313 with seven doubles five home runs and 22 RBI in 37 games as a utility player for the Sun Devils.

This week in Pac-12 baseball

Oregon State and UCLA swept through their respective regionals and are headed to super regional play. UCLA will make the short jog down Interstate 5 to take on Cal State Fullerton in the Fullerton Regional, while OSU, which will host its fourth super regional since 2005, clashes with Big 12 Champion Kansas State. Like their Pac-12 counterparts, neither Cal State Fullerton, the No. 5 national seed in the tournament, nor Kansas State has lost a postseason tilt in 2013. Oregon, which set a program record with 48 wins this year, saw its season come to an end on Monday after falling to Rice in a winner-take-all bout in the Eugene Regional. The Ducks and Owls split decisions on Saturday and Sunday to set up Monday’s elimination game. Arizona State, which opened the Fullerton Regional with a gutsy victory over New Mexico, ended its postseason run with a 6-1 loss to host Cal State Fullerton. The region’s top-seed, Fullerton also dealt the Sun Devils a heartbreaking 1-0 loss on Saturday. UCLA junior first baseman Pat Gallagher and Oregon State sophomore outfielder Dylan Davis picked up Most Outstanding Player honors in their regional tournaments, while 13 other Pac-12 players were selected to the four all-regional teams. The Conference, headlined by Stanford senior right-hander Mark Appel, will be well represented in the 2013 MLB Draft, which begins on Thursday. Appel, the eighth-overall pick in the 2012 draft, figures to be an early first round selection.

PAC-12 BASEBALL NOTES

Oregon State (48-10)
Oregon State went unbeaten in the Corvallis Regional, racking up wins over Texas-San Antonio, UC Santa Barbara and Texas A&M to advance to the fifth NCAA Super Regional in program history. Junior lefty Ben Wetzler struck out a career-high 10 Aggies in the finale, en route to turning in his second complete-game effort of the season. OSU, which welcomes Big 12 Champion Kansas State to Corvallis this weekend, will host its fourth super regional since 2005. The Beavers, who are making their school-record fifth consecutive postseason appearance, earned the No. 3 national seed in the tournament after winning 16 of 18 games to close out the regular season. They lost just one Conference series this year (Washington) and claimed their third Pac-12 title since 1999. OSU leads the Pac-12 and ranks second in the nation with a 2.18 team ERA. Beaver pitchers boast a Conference-best .209 opposing batting average.

UCLA (42-17)
UCLA went 3-0 in the Los Angeles Regional, dispatching San Diego State, Cal Poly and San Diego to win its seventh regional title—it’s fifth since the four-team regional format was instituted in 1999. The Bruins, who are making their third NCAA Super Regional trip in the last four seasons, have advanced to consecutive super regionals for the first time in program history. They turn their attention to No. 4 Cal State Fullerton, who eliminated Arizona State on Sunday. The teams last met in the postseason in 2010, as UCLA won two of three games in the Los Angeles Super Regional after dropping a pair of midweek tilts to the Titans during the regular season. Cal State Fullerton claimed both regular season meetings in 2013 by three-run margins. With one more postseason victory, head coach John Savage will tie UCLA’s all-time postseason win mark (26) currently held by Gary Adams (1974-2004). The Bruins are making their fourth straight NCAA Championship appearance, a program first.

-The Pac-12 has produced at least three 40-win teams in five of the last seven seasons. Oregon State (48) has reached the plateau four times during that stretch, while UCLA (42) has accomplished the feat three times. Oregon (48) has won at least 40 games three times since the program was reinstated in 2009.

-The Conference has been represented in each of the last 16 College World Series. Since 1996, at least one Conference squad has made the trip to Omaha every year.

-Pac-12 teams went 11-4 in regional play and outscored their opponents by a combined 26 runs. Moreover, league squads held their opponents to one run or fewer in six of those games and posted a pair of shutouts.

-Fifteen Pac-12 players were named to All-Regional teams following last week’s action, and two were named Most Outstanding Player of their respective regionals. The list is as follows:
Los Angeles Regional (UCLA): Pat Gallagher (Most Outstanding Player), Jr., 1B; Pat Valaika, Jr., SS; Adam Plutko, Jr., RHP; Grant Watson, So., LHP; Eric Filia, So., OF.
Eugene Regional (Oregon): Ryon Healy, Jr., 1B; Tyler Baumgartner, Jr., OF; Scott Heineman, So., UT; Cole Irvin, Fr., LHP.
Corvallis Regional (Oregon State): Dylan Davis (Most Outstanding Player), So., OF; Ben Wetzler, Jr., LHP; Ryan Barnes, DH; Jake Rodriguez, Jr., C; Andrew Moore, Fr. RHP; and Andy Peterson, Jr., 2B.
Fullerton Regional (Arizona State): Kasey Coffman, Jr., OF.

-The 2013 MLB Draft will be held Thursday, June 6 - Saturday, June 8 (Thu: Rounds 1-2; Fri: Rounds 3-10; Sat. Rounds 11-40). The Pac-12 has produced 28 first round draft picks since 2006 and has seen at least one player come off the board in the first round every year during that span.

-Stanford’s Mark Appel has been tabbed the second-best MLB Draft prospect by Baseball America, which released its Top 500 Draft Preview last week. Fellow Cardinal Austin Wilson (No. 29) and A.J. Vanegas (No. 78), Cal’s Andrew Knapp (No. 71), Arizona State’s Trevor Williams (No. 74) and Oregon’s Ryon Healy (No. 86) and Jimmie Sherfy (No. 94) joined Appel in the top 100.

By the Pac-12 Conference

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — Five Pac-12 freshmen have been named to the 2013 National Collegiate Baseball Writers Division I Freshmen All-America team, the NCBWA announced on Monday. The Conference’s five representatives on the first and second teams were the most by any conference.

Oregon State starter Andrew Moore, the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, and Arizona State reliever Ryan Burr were first-team selections, while ASU starter Ryan Kellogg and Oregon pitchers Garrett Cleavinger and Cole Irvin were second-team honorees.

Moore, a second-team Louisville Slugger All-American, is 14-1 (his 14 wins are tied for the national lead), and his 1.36 ERA ranks second in the league. Additionally, he boasts a league-leading .194 opposing batting average. He has tossed three complete-game shutouts this season, the most by an OSU pitcher in more than a decade. Oregon State’s Saturday starter, Moore has tallied 70 strikeouts and issued 26 walks in 119.0 innings this season.

Burr earned honorable mention All-Conference praise after posting a 4-2 record and a 2.20 ERA in 2013. The righty struck out 60 batters with 23 walks over 45 innings and boasted a team-low .141 opposing batting average.

Kellogg, a Howser Trophy semifinalist and a second-team Louisville Slugger All-American, went 11-1 with a 3.15 ERA. The lefty struck out 54 batters while issuing 17 walks over 103 innings en route to garnering all-conference laurels. He tossed a no-hitter against Oregon State on March 23.

Irvin, an honorable mention Pac-12 selection, went 12-3 with a 2.48 ERA and posted four complete games. The left-handed starter fanned 60 batters while walking 22 over 116 innings and helped the Ducks to a school-record 48 wins.

Cleavinger posted a 9-0 record and picked up a pair of saves. The lefty reliever carried a team-best 1.24 ERA and struck out 57 batters in 43.2 innings of relief. He allowed just 20 hits in 37 appearances and did not concede a triple or a home run.
