TCU’s offense amassed 39 hits and 32 runs in three games against Southern Illinois over the weekend, capping a season-opening series sweep with an 11-0 win Sunday at Lupton Stadium.
We’ve got runs, people. Line drives into the gaps that are actually sailing to the walls. Baseballs — new baseballs with flatter seams — that are soaring over fences.
And while you wouldn’t exactly describe the Frogs’ 11-0 defeat of SIU on Sunday as breathless, it had a certain flair. It looked like real baseball.
A stellar pitching performance from four TCU pitchers and another early offensive explosion helped the Horned Frogs sweep Southern Illinois with an 11-0 victory. The TCU pitching staff limited the Salukis to just four runs (one earned) over the weekend.
The Frogs scored seven runs in the third inning to blow the game open. TCU (3-0) sent 11 hitters to the plate in the bottom of the third inning to extend its lead to 10-0.
