Oregon State left-handed pitcher Jake Mulholland has been named a freshman all-American for the third time this season, when Baseball America announced him to its second team on Monday.
The Snohomish, Washington, native has already been recognized by Collegiate Baseball and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. The NCBWA also honored him as a second-team all-American (overall).
That made him just the third Oregon State freshman to be named an all-American, joining Michael Conforto (2012) and Bryce Fehmel (2016).
Mulholland ended the season with a 7-1 record and 1.20 ERA in 28 relief appearances. His ERA ranks as the fourth-lowest mark in Oregon State single-season history among pitchers with 40 or more innings.
He struck out 44 in 52⅓ innings, holding opponents to a .183 batting average.
Mulholland capped his freshman campaign with 4⅓ scoreless innings of relief against Cal State Fullerton in the opening game of the College World Series. He struck out three and earned the win after the Beavers came-from-behind for a 6-5 victory.
