Oregon Baseball: Anderson and Pulfer named to Pac-10 All-Conference team

New, 4 comments

Oregon Ducks starting pitcher Tyler Anderson and second baseman Danny Pulfer were named to the Pac-10 All-Conference team. 

Anderson has now won the award for the second consecutive year, while this is the first time Pulfer has received the honor in his three-year Oregon career. Anderson finished the 2011 season with an 8-3 record, 2.17 ERA and 114 strikeouts (3rd Pac-10). 

In 15 starts this season, Anderson recorded 12 quality outings and six starts with double digits in strikeouts.

Earlier today, Anderson, a Las Vegas native, was named one of 30 semifinalists for the Golden Spikes Award.

Pulfer carried the Ducks offense in 2011, batting .351 (5th Pac-10), recording 79 hits (2nd Pac-10) and 16 doubles (T-4th Pac-10). 

Pulfer, a Cypress, Calif. native, set a program record in doubles and his 13-game hit streak set a new Oregon modern era record. Pulfer had two double digit hit streaks this season. 

It is expected that both players will not return for their senior seasons and turn pro following the draft in June.

Oregon relief pitcher Kellen Moen received honorable mention accolades. The senior set an Oregon single-season record with eight saves, which tied for third in the Pac-10.

The honor is voted on by the league's coaches.
