RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Already a two-time All-American this season, California Baptist University pitcher Trevor Oaks added a third national honor with the release of the American Baseball Coaches Association's top players in NCAA Division II Tuesday evening.
Oaks was voted a second-team selection by the ABCA after being named a second-team and third-team player in Division II, respectively, by the National Collegiate Baseball Writer's Association and Daktronics.
The PacWest and NCBWA West Region Pitcher of the Year ended 2014 as a division leader in a number of statistics. His 11 wins and 107 strikeouts are both top-10 marks in Division II at third and seventh, respectively, while his starts (15) stand at 11th in the NCAA. His 1.68 earned-run average is also a top-20 mark at No. 18 in the NCAA this season.
The sophomore right-hander also posted impressive numbers in the hit-per-nine innings (6.31) and WHIP (0.99) categories, which rank 26th and 30th in Division II this year. Oaks also recorded the Lancers baseball program's first NCAA win after throwing a complete game in a 5-3 win over Cal Poly Pomona on May 15th.
Oaks' honor roll may not be done yet. He is one of eight finalists up for the inaugural Brett Tomko award, which is given to the top Division II pitcher and will be awarded after the Division II Championships.
