Kopps Named NCBWA National Pitcher Of The Month

Kevin Kopps | Arkansas Razorbacks

On the year, Kopps has a 6-0 record and a 0.85 ERA, striking out 75 and walking only 12 in 42.1 innings. He has a team-high six saves, allowing only 27 hits – a .164 opponent batting average against – and surrendering just four runs this season.

The Sugar Land, Texas, native is also in the running for the NCBWA Stopper of the Year Award, which is given to the top relief pitcher in the nation at the year’s end.

Kopps and the Razorbacks get back to work this weekend in the friendly confines of Baum-Walker Stadium, hosting Georgia for a three-game conference series. The action begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday, May 7, on SEC Network+.
