Moore Lands Perfect Game Honor
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Andrew Moore landed another Freshman All-America First-Team honor on Monday when Perfect Game announced its postseason selections.
He is a unanimous Freshman All-American, with Baseball America, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) and Louisville Slugger also tabbing him to their respective teams.
In addition to the Freshman All-American selections, he has been named a First-Team All-American by Baseball America and the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) and he also picked up a second-team All-America honor by Louisville Slugger.
The Pac-12’s coaches thought highly of him, as well, as he was named the league’s Freshman of the Year – Oregon State’s second consecutive – and was an all-Pac-12 First Team honoree.
The honors certainly well deserved as Moore went 14-2 in 2013, tying Scott Christman (1993) for the most victories by an OSU pitcher in one season. The 14 wins also tied Vanderbilt’s Tyler Beede and UCLA’s Nick Vander Tuig for the most in the nation.
Moore’s 1.79 earned run average is the 10th-best single-season mark in Oregon State history.
Opponents batted just .207 against him and he recorded 12 quality starts in 19 appearances.
Moore’s Freshman All-America honors gives the Beavers at least one in each of the last seven seasons. He, Matt Boyd and Michael Conforto, additionally, have all earned All-America honors in 2013, giving the Beavers at least one selection the last three seasons.
Oregon State head coach Pat Casey has now coached 13 different All-Americans since his first season in 1995.
