Honors and awards have rolled in all season long for Louisville sophomore Reid Detmers, who has added two more with All-America honors from the American Baseball Coaches Association and the College Baseball Foundation.
Detmers has now been named an All-American by six different organizations, four on the first team (ABCA, D1Baseball, NCBWA and Perfect Game) and two on the second team (College Baseball Foundation and Collegiate Baseball Newspaper).
The ACC Pitcher of the Year is 12-4 across 18 starts this season, holding a 2.79 ERA and a Louisville single-season record 167 strikeouts. The strikeout total is the second-highest in the country and fifth all-time in ACC history.
Detmers owns nine starts with double digit strikeouts this season, including seven no-hit innings in consecutive starts against Brown and James Madison. Behind a dominant start to the season, the southpaw was named the D1Baseball Midseason Top Pitcher and Perfect Game Midseason National Pitcher of the Year.
The sophomore took the ball for the Cardinals in Sunday’s NCAA College World Series opener against Vanderbilt and allowed just one run on three hits in 5.2 innings. It marked the seventh start this season for Detmers with three hits or fewer allowed.
Louisville is back in action on Tuesday in an elimination game against Auburn. First pitch is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. CT at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha.
