TCU bounced back from a brutal weekend to take the second half of a resumed game.
“It was just good to get out there and get our feet back under us,” said second baseman Cam Warner, who doubled and scored on Baker’s single and finished 3-for-5. “We’ve been through tests before. We’ve had to overcome adversity. Today was a big step for that.”
Jake Eissler, Sean Wymer, and Durbin Feltman combined to pitch a gem, with a little help from an outfield assist.
ACU had its best chance to score Tuesday night in the bottom of the sixth when Luis Trevino led off with a single and moved to second on a groundout by Dominguez. Russell Crippen then singled to left, but Trevino was thrown out at the plate trying to score and Koby Claborn then went down looking to end the inning.
The Wildcats got just one more hit in the game — a hard-hit single up the middle by Mark Pearson in the seventh — but couldn’t muster a true scoring threat against TCU’s bullpen duo of Sean Wymer in the eighth and sophomore closer Dubrin Feltman in the ninth.
The grad transfer forward makes it official.
TCU coach Jamie Dixon announced Hamdy's signing Tuesday. Dixon says the 6-foot-9, 240-pound Hamdy is a big man who runs the floor well and can score in the post.
Hamdy, a native of Egypt, spent the past two seasons at VCU. Hamdy averaged 5.9 points and 3.8 rebounds last season.
