TCU tried to mount a comeback and had a four-run sixth inning. Dane Steinhagen had a run-scoring double in the inning. He also had a home run.

A member of the class of 2020, a senior from Yakima, Washington shares her impressions of Fort Worth with the Pacific Northwest. It's always fun to hear an 'outsider' wax poetic about our fair little city. We can't wait to welcome you to the Frog Fam, Taylor!
