James Kaprielian Earns Perfect Game Freshman All-America Honors
By: UCLA Athletics

UCLA relief pitcher James Kaprielian has earned second-team freshman All-America honors from Perfect Game USA, as announced by the publication today. He previously earned freshman All-America honors from Louisville Slugger/Collegiate Baseball back in June.

Kaprielian, a right-hander from Tustin, Calif., posted a 1.55 ERA in 34 relief appearances this past season, giving him the second-lowest ERA on the team. He recorded two saves while giving up just seven earned runs in 40.2 innings during his freshman season, serving as an integral part of a bullpen that helped lead UCLA to the 2013 NCAA Championship. Additionally, Kaprielian struck out 53 batters and allowed just a .141 batting average against him all year.

In Pac-12 play, he appeared in 16 games while posting a 1.65 ERA and 19 strikeouts. Kaprielian also appeared in six postseason games for the Bruins, giving up just one run in 5.2 innings pitched while striking out seven.
