K-State’s Edwards Named to ABCA All-Midwest Region Squad

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State relief pitcher Daniel Edwards was named to the 2007 ABCA All-Midwest Region Second Team, the American Baseball Coaches Association has announced.

Edwards, a junior, went 3-0 with a 2.27 ERA with 11 saves in 2007 and
yielded just nine total runs in 35.2 innings of work this season. The
First Team All-Big 12 performer struck out a team-high 49 batters in
those 35.2 innings while opponents hit just .173 against him.

Dating back to last season, Edwards has recorded a save or a win in 13
of his last 20 appearances and has yielded nine total runs in his last
38.1 innings, which also includes a streak of 21.0 scoreless innings
that was snapped earlier this season against Missouri.

His 11 saves this season tie the single-season school record, and for
his career, Edwards now has 14 saves, which are the second-most in
school history. He needs four more to tie the school record of 18, set
by David Johnson. Edwards also ranks second in school history in career
relief appearances with 58.

The Kingwood, Texas, native was a candidate for numerous national awards
this season, including the Dick Howser Trophy, the Brooks Wallace
Award, the Stopper of the Year Award and the Roger Clemens Award.

Edwards helped lead the Wildcats to a 34-24 overall record in 2007 and
their first berth in the Big 12 Conference Tournament since the 2002
season.
