Walk-Off in 12th; No. 5 Frogs stay undefeated

Share this

Every single TCU batter got at least a hit tonight, including the ones that came in late in the game.  None more important then when Luke Boyers stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 12th with bases loaded and drove a walk-off single to left field scoring Sam Myers to keep the Frogs undefeated.

Zack Cawyer needed 53 pitches to get yet another win improving to 3-0 and the season in 3 innings tonight.  Cawyer is the only pitcher in the nation with 3 wins and a 3-0 start.

The Frogs gave up a home run the very first at-bat and didn’t look back once building a 7-3 lead going into the top of the 9th until Washington State loaded the bases and tied the game.

Head coach, Kirk Saarloos answered his own question, “What’s their mentality when they do get punched in the face.”  Saarloos saw not one second of panic and that is the resilient group that won the game in the 12th.

Boyers explained that this was a perfect example of, “you never know what can happen and everyone that comes in to play TCU is going to play their best brand of baseball.  If you are not focused on each and every game, a team can sneak up on you and take one from you.”

Karson Bowen continued his hot RBI string.  He is now at 14 on the year, leading the team with 2 more tonight.

Anthony Silva leads the team in hits with 14, after his 2 hits tonight.

Six of TCU’s eight runs scored came with two outs improving to 8-0 which is the best start to a season since 1994.
