For the third time this season, and the second time at home, the Frogs will face off against UTA. The Mavs travel to Lupton off of a successful weekend against Georgia Southern, winning the series as part of a 6-2 stretch. UTA has gone 3-4 against the Big XII but 0-2 verses the Frogs, but will try and turn things around in a rare Wednesday night matchup.
Led by Brady Cox (.387 average) and Christian Hollie (28 RBIs) the Mavericks average 6.5 runs per game. They pitch it pretty well also - with the staff ERA just over 4.00. But both of those aspects will be put to the test against a TCU squad that is as hot as anybody in the country, as they have absolutely pounded the ball for the past week. TCU has four of the top 10 run-producers in the conference, led by Luken Baker's 31, though seven of the nine starters are in the double digits and six have knocked in 20 or more.
Freshman Sean Wymer gets the start for the Frogs, making his first start, though he has five scoreless appearances, allowing one hit, three walks, and striking out 11 in eight innings of work.
With conference play set to resume Friday, this is an important game for TCU to keep their feet set before traveling to Lawrence for a three game set. Come chat with us here about the game!
