HOUSTON -- Texas Christian's Lance Broadway, Miami's Cesar Carrillo and Tennessee's Luke Hochevar were selected as finalists for the Roger Clemens Award, given to college baseball's top pitcher.
The winner will be announced on July 14 in Houston at a dinner
in honor of the three finalists.
Broadway was 15-1 with a 1.67 ERA for the Horned Frogs, who were eliminated from the NCAA tournament last weekend. He was taken with
the 15th overall selection in the draft by the Chicago White Sox.
Carrillo, 13-2 with a 2.22 ERA, had a 24-game winning streak ended earlier this season. He'll start the super regional opener for Miami against Nebraska on Friday. He was drafted 18th overall
by San Diego.
Hochevar was 15-2 with a 2.13 ERA for the Volunteers, and will start the super regional opener against Georgia Tech on Friday. He was taken 40th overall in the draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The three finalists were determined by a second round of voting by Division I head baseball coaches, a selection of national college baseball media, the 16 winners of the Rotary Smith Award and the three finalists for last year's Clemens Award, including the winner, Jered Weaver of Long Beach State.
