With the 1st pick of the 13th Round (399th overall), the Astros select 6'4" 205lb LHP Brian Holmes, a 21-year old Junior out of Wake Forest.
Holmes led all Wake starters with a 2.83 ERA, and a .212 BAA. In 82.2IP, he allowed 62H/26ER, 81K:49BB and threw a no-hitter against Marshall, striking out 10 and walking just one.
He was the #97 player in College Baseball Daily's Top 100 countdown.
Wake Forest coach Tom Walter was unsure whether Holmes would return to Wake Forest for his senior season.
