OSU's Boyd & Moore earn All-American status
Matt Boyd

TUCSON, Ariz. – Oregon State freshman right-handed pitcher Andrew Moore and senior left-hander Matt Boyd have been named to the Collegiate Baseball All-America Teams on Thursday. Moore is a second-teamer while Boyd was named to the third team.
 
Moore is the second freshman at Oregon State to be named an All-American, joining Michael Conforto, who was named to multiple teams in 2012. Moore was also named the Pac-12 Conference’s Freshman of the Year.
 
Moore led the Pac-12 with 12 victories, which places him in a tie for third nationally. He posted a 1.22 earned run average during the regular season, good for second in the league and finished with a 0.93 WHIP (walks plus hits per nine innings).
 
Moore enters the postseason on a seven-game win streak and was named the Pac-12’s Pitcher of the Week May 20 after throwing a two-hit shutout in OSU’s 9-0 win over Oregon. He has allowed just two earned runs in his last 42 innings of work.
 
For Boyd, it’s his first career All-America honor.
 
He went 10-3 during the regular season and accumulated a 2.09 earned run average, three complete games and 98 strikeouts. He was named the Pac-12’s Pitcher of the Week twice and threw a one-hit shutout against Arizona State in March. It was the first time in 30 years the Sun Devils had been one-hit.
 
The Beavers turn their sights to UTSA, whom OSU will host Friday in the club’s opening game of the Corvallis Regjonal. First pitch is slated for 5:05 p.m. PT and can be seen live on ESPN3.com.
