The TCU offense exploded for 13 runs on 18 hits as the Horned Frogs handed Texas A&M a 13-4 defeat in the first game of the NCAA Super Regional in front of a stadium record 7,199 fans.
For a few times last weekend, the tall No. 40 in TCU’s bullpen would stand up, grab a ball and begin playing catch. He’d start from behind the mound, almost leaping into each throw, before homing in and inching toward the rubber. After a few minutes, he’d look ready.

Cody Jones, Evan Skoug, Derek Odell and Nolan Brown had RBIs and Jones scored on a wild pitch in a five-run sixth inning as TCU beat Texas A&M 13-4 Saturday in Game 1 of their NCAA super regional series at Fort Worth.
It’s camp season, and for TCU’s first satellite stop, the Horned Frogs’ coaching staff went to where they’ve had the most recruiting success this spring: Houston.
