Jake Roehn has cemented himself as Ohio's anchor in the bullpen for the past three seasons.

After his 23rd career save in the Bobcats' 6-5 win against Rider in Lexington, South Carolina, on Saturday, Roehn will be remembered as one of the best relievers in Ohio history.

The redshirt senior's save on Saturday broke Ohio's career save record set by Chad Reed, who pitched for the Bobcats from 1989-92 and collected 22 saves.

Roehn, a native of Sandwich, Illinois, has led Ohio in ERA the past two seasons — the right-hander garnered a 2.18 ERA in 45 1/3 innings in 2016 and a 2.28 ERA in 43 1/3 innings in 2017.

Prior to the 2018 season, Roehn was named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association's 2018 Stopper of the Year Preseason Watch List. The award is given to the top reliever in the NCAA at the end of each season, and Roehn was among 52 other pitchers listed.
