The Texas State baseball team has undergone a transformation that has taken nearly two months.
The Bobcats no longer squander leads in the ninth inning. Gone are the days without a reliable starting pitcher. The offense—a problem earlier in the season—has provided the pitching staff with enough run support for consistent wins.
Texas State, facing UTSA Tuesday night, is a different team. The Bobcats’ 11-7 victory in the March 17 matchup against UTSA exemplifies the team’s change in trajectory.
The Bobcats trailed 7-4 heading into the seventh inning, and their chances were dwindling.
The rally started with a single. And another single. And a walk. Eventually nine consecutive batters reached base, capping a seven-run stretch for the Bobcats.
