A huge weekend for the Horned Frogs ended with plenty of recognition.

The Horned Frogs have been red-hot heading into Tuesday’s 3:00pm tilt against SFA in Stephenville, and two of the players at the heart of their nine game win streak were recently honored for their exploits on the diamond. Austin Krob (Pitcher of the Week) and Brayden Taylor (Co-Newcomer of the Week) were honored for their performances in leading TCU to a 4-0 record last week. The honor is the second for Krob and the first for Taylor.

After battling out of a bases-loaded, nobody-out situation in the first, allowing just one run, Krob rallied for a strong performance. The lefty retired 16 in a row to get the game into the seventh. He allowed a hit and a walk in the seventh, but a double play ended the inning. The sophomore’s final line saw him allow a run on three hits, with one walk and a career-high 10 strikeouts.

You can watch 46 seconds of him making the Sooners look silly, thanks to our friends @FrogBall_Data:

Taylor reached base safely in all four games and hit .357 in the series at Oklahoma. The freshman homered in all three games against the Sooners and had two hits in the opener and the series finale. On Saturday, Taylor turned a key double play in the first inning when the Sooners had the bases loaded with nobody out.

Krob was named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week on March 29 in addition to Luke Boyers earning Big 12 Newcomer of the Week honors on March 1.

TCU has climbed to No. 6 in the rankings and is riding a nine game winning streak. The Horned Frogs are coming off a sweep at Oklahoma over the weekend. TCU continues its road swing on Tuesday afternoon at Tarleton State. First pitch is set for 3 p.m.

Additionally, TCU senior forward Yazmeen Ryan earned her second weekly award in two games played for her performance in TCU’s home victory over #15 Oklahoma State.

Ryan had a hand in all four goals scored in the 4-0 shutout over No. 15 Oklahoma State. The senior assisted on the first and third goals of the game. Her first goal of the game came off a set piece from just outside the 18. Her second goal was an individual effort from about 25 yards out. The senior has played a part in all six goals TCU has scored in the spring.

TCU Soccer is back at it Saturday in a road contest at Texas A&M, with game time set for 7:00pm.
