HOUSTON -- The Texas State baseball team scored two runs in the top of the first inning and that was all the Bobcat pitching tandem of Garret Carruth and Tyler Brundridge needed for a 4-1 victory over the Rice baseball team Tuesday evening at Reckling Park.
Rice retired the first two batters of the game, but Texas State rallied for two runs on a hit batsman and three-straight base hits from the middle of the Bobcat order to take a 2-0 lead.
The Owls had the bases loaded in the first and runners on first and third in the third, but could not convert the opportunities into runs. In the fourth, Micheal Fuda knocked a pitch to right field corner and hustled for his eighth double of the season. He scored on Ryan Lewis base hit to cut the margin to a run, 2-1.
Texas State came right back with two runs in the top of the fifth. Keith Prestridge, Spenser Dennis and Ben Theriot all had consecutive singles for the first score. The Owls walked two more to force in the second run for a 4-1 Bobcat lead.
Carruth left with the lead in seventh and was replaced by Brundridge. The hurlers held Rice to seven hits, but three were for extra bases by Fuda, Rick Hague and Anthony Rendon. Hague and Rendon both paced the Owls with two hits each. Rice moved to 31-12 on the season. Texas State improved to 34-12 overall.
The Owls will next face Conference USA foe UCF in a three-game weekend league series Friday-Sunday (May 8-10). Game times with the Knights are 6:30 pm, 2 pm and 1 pm, respectively. The final Rice home
