The Texas State Bobcats welcomed Rice on Tuesday night looking for a season sweep of the Owls for the first time since 1988. The Bobcats got off to an early 1-0 lead in the first, and carried that lead to the fourth inning when they added on four more runs lead by a 2-run homer from Chase Evans. Rice answered with two runs in the top of the fifth off of a double by Bradley Gneiting and one more run in the sixth from a Rodrigo Duluc double.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Travon Benton hit a bomb over the fence to give Texas State a 6-3 lead. Unfortunately for the Bobcats, they couldn’t hold on to the lead as Rice tied it up in the eighth. In the bottom half of the inning, Jaylen Hubbard was up to bat with the bases loaded, but was unable to capitalize on the opportunity, striking out to end the eighth.

Hubbard would get a second chance to win the ball game as he was up in the tenth, with the winning run on the third base. On a 3-0 count, he laced a line drive up the middle to win the ball game for Texas State. “He wasn’t going to get me twice,” said Hubbard, who got his revenge on Rice pitcher Drake Greenwood. The Bobcats advance to 16-9 on the season and will return to conference action at Appalachian State this weekend, with the first game scheduled for 4 p.m. on Friday.
