LYNCHBURG, Va. – Oregon State right-handed pitcher Andrew Moore has been named a First-Team Freshman All-American by the National College Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA), it was announced on Monday.
 
Moore improved to 14-1 after limiting Kansas State to four runs – three earned – in eight innings on Sunday night. He struck out a career-best nine.
 
His 14 wins is tied for first in the nation and also ties Scott Christman (1993) for most in a single-season at Oregon State.
 
He’s already been named a freshman All-American by Louisville Slugger and was a second-team All-American by the same organization. He joined Michael Conforto (2012) as the only Oregon State true freshmen to ever be named an All-American. The Beavers, meanwhile, have had at least one freshman All-American the last seven seasons.
 
Oregon State and Kansas State finish the Super Regional Monday at 7:05 p.m. PT. The game will air live on either ESPN2 or ESPNU and with an online stream available by visiting ESPN3.com.
