Garrett Crain and Nolan Brown both drove in three runs, Derek Odell scored twice, and TCU beat UT Pan American 11-5 on Wednesday night at Lupton Stadium.
Top-ranked TCU scored early and often to complete the midweek sweep of Texas-Pan American with an 11-5 win. The victory pushes the Horned Frogs' win streak to eight. Nolan Brown paced the offense with two hits and three RBIs.
Things may seem great for the Horned Frogs after a 12-1 season, but a Big 12 title and College Football Playoff talk put a target squarely on TCU’s back heading into 2015.
As the Horned Frogs were loading buses for their WNIT opening-round matchup against Colorado — quite an achievement for a team that was 9-21 the previous season — they were told their head coach, Jeff Mittie, would not be making the trip as he had just taken a job at Kansas State.
