HATTIESBURG, Miss. – Southern Miss senior right-handed pitcher James McMahon earned second-team Louisville Slugger All-American honors in an announcement Thursday by the publication Collegiate Baseball.
“I am extremely proud and incredibly happy for James in the year that he put together for this program,” said Southern Miss coach Scott Berry. “His numbers speak for themselves as one of the best for a Southern Miss pitcher in a season, but what doesn't show up in those numbers was the leadership he showed both on and off the field to help round out a tremendous senior campaign for him.”
McMahon, the 2015 Conference USA Pitcher of the Year and C Spire Ferriss Trophy winner, finished the year with an 11-1 record with a 1.56 earned run average in 15 starts during the campaign. He put together three complete games, of which two were shutouts, and was a part of another shutout during the year.
His victory total tied for second-most in a season for a Golden Eagle pitcher, while his winning percentage (.917) ranks tied for third and his earned run average for the year was seventh-best.
He threw 92 1/3 innings and allowed 18 runs (16 earned) on 66 hits and 22 walks with 60 strikeouts during the year. He allowed just 12 extra-base hits of which one was a home run.
McMahon is the first Southern Miss All-American since Todd McInnis collected third-team honors by Louisville Slugger during the 2011 season.
