Tyler_Davis_WU.jpgUSA Baseball announced 21 semifinalists for the 37th annual Golden Spikes Award Tuesday and Washington pitcher Tyler Davis was on the list. Fans can help get Davis on the list of finalists for the Golden Spikes Award by voting online. Voting starts today and goes through Friday, May 30. The junior right-hander from Mountain View, California is 10-2 on the season with a 1.75 ERA in 14 games, 13 starts for Washington (39-15-1).

The Huskies finished second in the Pac-12 Conference with a 21-9 record and are headed to the Oxford, Miss. Regional of the NCAA Baseball championships.

Davis ranked fourth in the Pac-12 in ERA and tied for third with 10 wins.  He is the 14th player in Washington history with 10 or more wins in a season, the first since Tim Lincecum in 2006. Davis needs two more innings to break into the UW single-season top-10 list and his 1.75 ERA ranks fifth best in UW history.

Davis is also among the watch list members for the Dick Howser Award and Gregg Olson Breakout Player of the Year.

USA Baseball officials will announce the list of finalists for the 2014 Golden Spikes Award on Tuesday, June 3. To select the finalists, the list of semifinalists is sent to a voting body consisting of past Golden Spikes Award winners, past USA Baseball National Team coaches and press officers, members of media that closely follow the amateur game, select professional baseball personnel, and current USA Baseball staff, representing a group of more than 200 voters in total.
