TCU regains ace but loses slugging king in loss to Abilene Christian | The Star-Telegram

The loss stings, but the loss of Baker stings more.

Baker caught his spikes in the dirt in front of second base and broke a bone in his lower left leg. He was helped off the field by TCU trainer Danny Wheat.

He’ll be examined by a foot and leg specialist on Wednesday. Baker’s season in 2017 was cut short by a left arm injury in May. Baker leads the Frogs with nine homers and 26 RBIs.

”I don’t know what to say,” TCU coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “Nobody is going to feel sorry for us.”

The Frogs’ four-game winning streak was snapped with a 4-2 loss in 11 innings against ACU but the bigger concern is Baker’s prognosis.

He’ll be evaluated more on Wednesday and is unlikely to play against UT Arlington (19-17) at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Clay Gould Ballpark in Arlington. The Mavs beat Dallas Baptist 7-2 Tuesday night.
