 Bridges Named to Stopper of the Year Watch List

The junior had a 1.35 ERA and five saves for the Gamecocks last year.

GREENVILLE, N.C. – Junior pitcher Sawyer Bridges has been named to the 2019 NCBWA Stopper of the Year Watch List, it was announced this afternoon (Monday, Feb. 11). Bridges is one of 75 relievers on the initial list, which is given to the top relief pitcher in NCAA Division I baseball.
Bridges made 21 appearances for the Gamecocks in 2018, going 2-1 with a 1.35 ERA and five saves. He had 25 strikeouts in 33.1 innings pitched and held opponents to a .223 batting average. Bridges saved his best for the postseason as a sophomore, striking out four in 3.1 innings of relief to earn the save in the Fayetteville Super Regional win over Arkansas. Bridges had a 1.45 ERA in conference games with three saves and 15 strikeouts while allowing just five earned runs all season.
The SEC had the most representation with 12 players finding their names on the watch list.
