                 === UCLA's Bauer wins Golden Spikes Award ===
 
 Los  Angeles,  CA (Sports Network) -  UCLA junior pitcher Trevor Bauer has won
 the  Golden Spikes  Award, presented to the top amateur baseball player in the
 nation.
 
 Virginia  pitcher Danny  Hultzen and  Texas pitcher  Taylor Jungmann  were the
 other finalists.
 
 "Being  mentioned  with the past recipients  of this award is an amazing honor
 and  privilege,"  Bauer said. "On a  personal note, it's validation of all the
 hard  work, time, sweat and tears that have gone into getting me to this point
 in  my career. But I could never have accomplished this without the help of my
 teammates,  coaches, friends and parents who have been with me along the ride.
 I  can't thank  them  enough, and  I  don't  really know  how  to express  the
 jubilation I'm experiencing right now."
 
 Bauer, a right-hander, went 3-2 with a 1.25 ERA in 136 2/3 innings and led the
 nation  in  strikeouts (203) and  complete games (10)  this season. He was the
 third  overall  selection in  the MLB  First-Year Player  Draft by the Arizona
 Diamondbacks.
