Conforto, Boyd Named All-Americans by Perfect Game

OMAHA, Neb. – Oregon State sophomore outfielder Michael Conforto and senior left-handed pitcher Matt Boyd have been named to Perfect Game’s All-American Teams, it was announced on Thursday.

 

Conforto is a first-team selection while Boyd was named to the third team. For Conforto, it’s his first All-American selection of the 2013 season, and he becomes just the fifth player in Oregon State history in multiple years, joining Jay Dean (1954-55), Cecil Ira (1962-63), Dallas Buck (2005-06) and Jonah Nickerson (2005-06).

 

Boyd, meanwhile, picks up his third third-team All-America honor after Louisville Slugger and Baseball America announced their teams in recent weeks.

 

Conforto, the Pac-12 Conference’s Player of the Year – and a two-time player of the week by the league - is batting .320 this season. The only Beaver to bat in the No. 3 spot in the lineup this season, he is tied for the Pac-12 lead with 11 home runs and has 45 runs batted in, which is second on the team.

 

He’s the first OSU player to hit 10 or more home runs in back-to-back seasons since Andy Jarvis (2001-02). Conforto’s 24 career home runs ranks him ninth in OSU history, and is just one shy of tying for sixth.

 

Boyd carries a 10-3 record into the College World Series. He sports a 2.13 earned run average and is second in the Pac-12 with 110 strikeouts. He’s walked just 30 in 122 2/3 innings and allowed 86 hits. That equates to a WHIP (walks plus hits per inning pitched) of 0.95.

 

Boyd, Conforto and Andrew Moore – a first-team All-American by Baseball America on Wednesday – gives the Beavers three All-Americans this year, joining the 2005 and 2006 clubs for most in a single season.

 

Oregon State opens the College World Series Saturday at 12 p.m. PT. The Beavers take on Mississippi State in a game that will air live on ESPN2.
