Collegiate Baseball Freshmen All-American Team

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -
Chris Murphy was named to the Collegiate Baseball Freshmen All-American team, the publication announced Wednesday morning. Murphy posted a 3-4 record with a 4.17 ERA with 89 strikeouts.

Murphy, who has already been named to the WCC All-Freshman team, appeared in 17 games for the Toreros (12 starts). He struck out 89 batters across 69 innings, good for a rate of 11.61 punchouts per nine innings, the fifth best rate in a single season in program history and the second best ever for a freshman.

Murphy started the year in the bullpen, but was moved into the rotation as the Saturday starter in early March. He then posted a 1.18 ERA over his next 38 innings while holding opposing hitters to a .174 average in that span.

This is the third year in a row the Toreros have had a representative on the Freshmen All-American team (Kevin Collard; 2016, & Bryson Brigman; 2015). Since 2011, the Toreros have had seven freshmen All-Americans.
