Texas Tech’s Jacob Patterson was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 13th round with the 394th pick of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft on Wednesday.

Patterson, a deceptive left-handed reliever amassed a record of 5-1 while striking out 63 in 51 1/3 innings of work. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder appeared in 30 contests and started one this season for the Red Raiders.

The Garland native is one of three pitchers — along with starters Steven Gingery and Ryan Shetter — to pitch 50-plus inning this season. Patterson came out of the pen second most to Parker Mushinski, who appeared in 31 games and was drafted by by the Houston Astros in the seventh round on Tuesday.
