Junior pitcher Corey Knebel was named to the 2013 Baseball America  All-America second team announced Thursday. The Georgetown, TX native led the team last year with a 4-5 record and a 2.08 ERA with nine saves. In 73 2/3 innings, he allowed 50 hits and 17 earned runs on 20 walks, while compiling 68 strikeouts. 

Knebel currently has 28 career saves and needs only 13 to tie the UT career mark of 41 set by current major league closer Huston Street in 2005. He tied the school single-season record for saves (14) in his freshman season as he was named Freshman Pitcher of the Year by Louisville Slugger/Collegiate Baseball.
