TUSCON, Ariz. – Sacramento State right-handed pitcher Scott Randall has been named a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
Randall is the second pitcher in as many seasons to receive Freshman All-American honors after Parker Brahms was selected last season. Overall, Randall is the sixth Hornet to earn Freshman All-American honors in the last eight seasons, joining Brahms (2017), Sam Long (2014), Sutter McLoughlin (2013), Chris Lewis (2013), and Rhys Hoskins (2012).
In his debut season, Randall went 7-3 with a 3.48 ERA. He appeared in 17 games while making 16 starts, including multiple starts on Friday night. His 16 starts were tied for the third most in the WAC while his ERA and wins both ranked seventh. He walked just 14 batters all season, the fewest in the WAC, and allowed the third fewest runs with 34.
In conference-only play, Randall was even better, going 4-1 while posting the WAC's fifth-best ERA at 2.75 in eight starts.
Randall made his Hornets debut with five shutout innings against a Washington Huskies team that is now in the NCAA Super Regionals. He allowed two earned runs or fewer in 10 of his 16 starts and capped his season with a brilliant eight-inning, one-run performance against Grand Canyon in the WAC Tournament.
