COLUMBIA, S.C. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢’Â¬” Freshman right-hander Braden Webb earned his second Freshman All-America distinction as he earned first-team accolades from the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA). Webb, who was selected in the 3rd round of the 2016 MLB Draft as the 82nd overall selection by the Milwaukee Brewers last week, finished the year 10-6 with a 309 ERA.
Webb became the 31st pitcher in school history to reach 10 or more wins with a victory in the 4-2 win over Alabama on May 20. He allowed 43 runs, 35 earned, on 80 hits in 102.0 innings. He struck out 128 to 48 walks with opponents batting .216 against him.
