Cron Comes Alive, Frogs tally 16 hits and beat UTA 12-6

Frogs get the win in Arlington

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Like Schlossnagle said last week, it's not a matter of just winning one game, it's winning a series. But a dominating win mid-week doesn't hurt the confidence of a TCU team that's loaded with talent, but still trying to find their groove in April.

Kevin Cron finally came alive, highlighted by a 3 RBI night, 2 of which came off of a monster home run in the 7th that put TCU up 7-1. Jerrick Suiter continues to look solid since his return and collected 3 hits and 3 RBIs on the night.


Put perhaps the most impressive of the night was Jordan Kipper, who picked up his third win of the season. Kipper, in a career high 6 2/3 innings pitched, fanned 7 and only walked one in the win against the Mavericks.

Other Highlights (via include:

• TCU hit two home runs in a game for the first time this season.

• The 16 hits for TCU were a season-high for the Horned Frogs. It's the 12th time the Frogs tallied double-digit hits in a game.
