TCU hammers Gonzaga twice to win series, regain edge | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Skoug led the charge during TCU's 16-1 win on Sunday, hitting a double, a triple, and recording four RBIs.

“Friday night was a tough one for us — we had a couple things not go our way, and tip your cap to that guy who threw well on Friday,” said catcher Evan Skoug, who drove in four runs Sunday and hit his first career triple. “But our big thing this weekend was just win the series. So Saturday, we came out a little [ticked] off, and Sunday we tried to come out with as much energy as possible. We had to come out fired up. That’s exactly what we did.”

The fourth inning helped TCU put the nail in the coffin.

Ten more runs crossed the plate in the fourth as the Horned Frogs sent 14 men to the plate. With one out, 10 straight batters reached base. Baker drove in the first run in the frame to push the lead to six. Two-run singles from Josh Watson, Ryan Merrill and Dane Steinhagen pushed the advantage to 12-0. Skoug put the exclamation point on the inning with a bases-clearing triple.

The purple elephant in the room, would TCU hire Billy Gillispie? | Big Mac Blog

Based on the quote below, it seems like Mac got an idea in his head and hastily wrote an article. There's no mention of the reasons he was dismissed from Kentucky and Texas Tech. He was fired from Kentucky because of contract disputes, and an incompatibility with the Wildcats' administration, and probably a bit of his underperformance as coach. He was fired from Tech after allegations of mistreating players. He eventually resigned from Tech, citing health reasons.

Gillispie, a basketball junkie if there ever was one, is known to frequent TCU games just to watch. His presence at games usually prompts people to wonder if he wants the job.

If everything happens as we think it will, it'll be a quick exit for the Frogs.

Former Frogs

Red-hot Holaday could make decision tough for Tigers |

The Former Frog has no more minor league options with Detroit, and there's a traffic jam behind the plate. His fantastic hitting to open up the spring could put the Tigers in a bind.

James McCann figures to be the starting catcher and the team signed veteran Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the offseason to serve as a backup. The Tigers' lineup also predominantly skews right-handed and Saltalamacchia is a switch-hitter. However, Holaday denied playing with any extra motivation or urgency and credited his time at TCU for teaching him how to block out distractions.
