Hitters being ahead of the count, free passes to first base, and a pivotal seven-run 5th inning gave the University of Texas at San Antonio Roadrunners a 14-7 victory over the Bobcats, snapping their seven-game winning streak.
Theodore Hoffman was huge for Texas State, as he hit a home-run in the bottom of the seventh. Then in his next at bat, with 2 men on base, Hoffman cranked out a 3-run homer. These were his first two home-runs of the season. It was the first time Hoffman’s hit a homer since his second at-bat in his collegiate career, which came back in February of last year.
Hoffman finished the night 3-4, with 2 home-runs, 4 RBI’s and 2 runs-scored.
On the night the Bobcats out hit U.T.S.A. 14 to 12, however the Road-Runners drew 10 walks and had three hit batters.
Jonathan Ortega, the Sun-Belt student athlete of the week, once again impressed with the bat in his hand, going 4-5 with a RBI. In his last two games, the freshmen phenom has hit 9-11 with 2 doubles.
Granger Studdard is starting to find his power again. The junior slugger also hit a home-run, his second on the season, with his first coming this past Saturday against The University of Louisiana at Monroe.
Studdard’s home-run tied the game in the 4th inning. Then U.T.S.A. had a big inning, and pulled away from Texas State, giving the Road-Runners their third straight against the ‘Cats.
With the loss the Bobcats fall to 12-5.
The Bobcats and Road-Runners will renew the rivalry two more times this year. They play again on April 5th, in San Marcos.
Up next for the Bobcats is a Sun-Belt conference series against Appalachian State, to be played in Bobcat Ballpark in San Marcos. Appalachian State are currently last in the Sun-Belt with a 3-13 record, having been swept in their Sun-Belt opener against Georgia Southern.
