LYNCHBURG, Va. - Arizona State University freshmen pitchers Ryan Burr and Ryan Kellogg have earned spots on the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Freshman All-American Team, the organization announced Monday.

Burr, a right-handed reliever from Highlands Ranch, Colo., was named to the first team after he set the freshmen school record for single-season saves with 12. He held opposing batters to a team-low .141 batting average, did not allow more than two hits in any of his 31 appearances and was second on the team with 60 strikeouts.

Kellogg, a left-handed starter from Whitby, Ontario, earned second team recognition after he became the first Sun Devil freshman in school history to begin his career 11-0. He was just the fourth pitcher in ASU annals to collect at least 11 wins in his freshman season and he also threw the ninth no-hitter in school history in a road win against then-No. 3 Oregon State on March 23.

ASU's two selections are tied with four others for the second-most, and are tied for the most in the Pac-12. Thirty Sun Devils have earned freshman All-America honors since 1995.

Five Sun Devils have earned freshman All-America honors in head coach Tim Esmay's four seasons in Tempe, including right-handed pitcher Brady Rodgers and shortstop Deven Marrero in 2010, and right-handed pitcher Trevor Williams in 2011.
