The offense was dominant through the first two games, but getting the pitching back on track is what has coach Jim Schlossnagle happy. And young Durbin Feltman got the ultimate compliment from one of his veteran teammates after making a four-out save Saturday afternoon.
"He’s fun to watch, isn’t he?" Howard said. "That fastball runs up there 98 every once in a while. He’s got a little bit of Riley Ferrell in him. We really trust him late in games. Never a doubt. We had no doubt he was going to get it done."
After 27 innings at Lupton Stadium, Oklahoma is licking its wounds. The Sooners were swept, falling 12-2 and 2-0 in Saturday’s doubleheader against TCU, and dropped all three games in the series.
Do you remember when Finny was 0-7 for the Frogs? It seems like a lifetime ago for the Reds new young star, who has already made his mark in the Big Leagues.
He has 16 strikeouts in 17 2/3 innings this season, including two in five innings Saturday against the Cardinals. He earned his first victory this season after holding St. Louis to four unearned runs on four hits and four walks.
TCU Men's Tennis:
Coach Dave Roditi has something special brewing in Fort Worth with his program, as the Frogs just keep winning.
TCU led 1-0 heading into singles play. Texas came out strong and took the first set in five of the singles matches. The Horned Frogs fought back and took the wins at No. 1 and No. 5, giving them a 3-0 lead over the Longhorns.
The Frogs lose only one senior contributor, and have some talent coming in. Is there enough there for new coach Jamie Dixon to find a way to win in year one?
There is still some solid potential here in the right hands. Trent, Washburn, and Brodziansky are all good defenders and combine with the shooters Collins and Parrish to form a decent core. Add in the bruisers Miller and Shepherd and you have a team that might develop enough to win three or four games in a Big 12 that loses a ton of star power going into next year.
It was revealed this morning that Bolden is not quite ready to make his choice, but TCU remains in the mix despite the change in coaches.
With time running out for Bolden to decide, it seems like he will finally do so on Sunday, which happens to be his 18th birthday. Many people have thought that Bolden's decision would come down to Duke or Kentucky, but he says that his hometown school, TCU, is still in the mix. Despite TCU still having a chance, many expect him to choose one of the other two schools.
It was a surprising run for the Horned Frogs to the title match, and they competed valiantly, falling by a single point in a tightly contested match.
"It was a dramatic finish to a great season," said head coach Greg Williams. "I'm so proud of this team and the great coaching staff. This staff had everyone ready to play and it's been an awesome weekend. I give so much credit to TCU for having a fantastic championship. They proved they're here to compete and are going to be successful in the future.
TCU Women's Beach Volleyball:
The beach volleyball program is off to a strong start, but ran into a juggernaut on their home court this weekend.
