Malibu, Calif. -
Junior Barry Enright, who is tied for fourth in the nation in wins and eighth in ERA, was named a third team All-American by Collegiate Baseball, the publication announced on Wednesday. He was one of 10 pitchers named to the third team.
Enright is currently 12-4 on the season with a 1.73 ERA while making 17 starts. His wins total and ERA lead the West Coast Conference (WCC) and his 12 victories tie for ninth on Pepperdine's single-season wins list.
The Waves' junior right hander is the first Pepperdine pitcher to be selected All-American since Steve Kleen received first team honors in 2005 by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) after posting a 4-3 record, 1.75 ERA and 17 saves as the team's closer.
The last Pepperdine starters named All-American were Dan Haren and Noah Lowry in 2001.
Enright enters regional play this weekend ranked second on Pepperdine's all-time career wins list and tied for fourth in WCC annals with a 35-7 record. He also ranks second in games started (55) and fourth in innings pitched (346.2).
In addition to being selected All-American, Enright was a unanimous All-WCC selection and is a semi-finalist for the Roger Clemens Award, Dick Howser Trophy and USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award.
Pepperdine opens play against UCLA in the Long Beach Regional on Friday at Blair Field beginning at 3 p.m.
