Luken Baker threw six-plus innings of one-hit baseball, and contributed a 2-run home run, to help the Frogs beat Loyola Marymount 5-0 and give Coach Schlossnagle his 518th win as TCU's head coach.
The Frogs (2-1) won two of three over the Lions, while Schlossnagle became the program’s all-time winningest coach in his 13th season at TCU, surpassing Lance Brown, a former player who led the team from 1986-2003.
Baker and Schloss got some serious help from the bats in the win.
The bats seemed to come alive for the Frogs, as they totaled 10 hits and five runs. Junior Elliot Barzilli continued his stellar weekend, going 3-4 at the plate and making a few great plays at third. Barzilli is now 7-11 batting after the team’s first three games.
Baker was phenomenal on the mound.
Making his first collegiate start on the mound, Baker was nothing short of spectacular. He retired the first 10 batters he faced and 15 of 16 to open the game. Baker gave way to the bullpen after 6+ innings of one-hit baseball. He finished with one walk and six strikeouts.
