WICHITA, Kan. - UCLA closer Scott Griggs has been named to the midseason watch list for the 2012 Stopper of the Year Award. Griggs, a junior right-handed reliever, has gone 0-1 with a 1.37 ERA and a team-leading eight saves.

The Stopper of the Year Award is presented at the conclusion of each season to the top relief pitcher in NCAA Division I baseball.

Griggs joins 44 other relief pitchers in college baseball on the NCBWA's midseason watch list. The native of Alamo, Calif., is tied for second in the Pac-12 Conference with eight saves. Griggs has surrendered four runs (three earned) and six hits in 19.2 innings, limiting the opposition to a .091 batting average in 19 relief appearances.

Griggs ranks third on UCLA's pitching staff with 30 strikeouts and has issued 18 walks.

At the conclusion of the regular season, the Division I national saves leader and four other relief pitching standouts will be selected as finalists and released Wednesday, June 6, prior to the start of NCAA Super Regional tournament competition.

The NCBWA's All-America committee will select the winner, with this year's recipient to be announced during the 2012 College World Series.

Texas hurler J. Brent Cox won the inaugural Stopper of the Year Award in 2005, with Don Czyz of Kansas claiming the honor in 2006. Other recent award winners have included Luke Prihoda (Sam Houston State) in 2007, Joshua Fields (Georgia) in 2008, Addison Reed (San Diego State) in 2009, Chance Ruffin (Texas) in 2010 and Texas freshman Corey Knebel in 2011.

UCLA's baseball team returns to action at Oregon State on Friday, April 20. Game time at OSU's Goss Stadium is 5:35 p.m. Fans can listen to a live audio broadcast of each game online, free of charge, at uclabruins.com.
