Junior right-hander Matt Koch became the first Louisville baseball player to hear his name called in this year's MLB Draft when the New York Mets selected him in the third round today. At overall pick No. 107, Koch is the fifth-highest Cardinal draftee in program history.
Known for a fastball which can enter into the mid 90s, Koch went 1-2 with a 3.34 ERA with four saves in 22 appearances this season. He allowed 41 hits and eight walks while striking out 30 in 32 1/3 innings.
Congratulations to Matt.
