Missouri pitcher Garrett Broshuis earned third team All-American honors Tuesday from the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

Broshuis, a right-hander with a 2.61 ERA and 91 strikeouts, went 11-0 this season for the Tigers, who finished second at the Big 12 Conference Tournament and earned a berth in the NCAA tournament. He was the third pitcher at Missouri to earn 11 wins in a season and the first since 1979.

Broshuis is the first Missouri player named to an All-American team since Ryan Stegall, a shortstop and closer, was on the third team in 2000. Broshuis also is the 11th Missouri athlete to earn Academic All-American honors.

The San Francisco Giants picked Broshuis, who finished his junior season, in the fifth round of this year’s draft.
