DALLAS- (DBU Media Relations) The Dallas Baptist Patriot offense again had an early surge against UT-San Antonio (23-19, 7-9) and this time, Patriot pitching made it stand up. Dallas Baptist (22-21, 9-8) defeated the Roadrunners, 5-2, with all runs for DBU coming in the first two innings. Cy Sneed (3-3) picked up the win and Joseph Shaw a three inning save as the duo combined to hold UTSA to seven hits on the afternoon. Michael Miller once again led the Patriot offense and Austin Listi had a key, two-out triple in the first inning to drive in two runs.

For the second straight game, DBU scored three runs in the first inning. Boomer Collins and Ronnie Mitchell opened the game for the Patriot offense with singles and Duncan McAlpine drove in the first run of the afternoon with a single through the left side. The inning looked like it might fizzle at one run as UTSA starter Nolan Trabanino recorded two straight outs with runners on first and second but freshman Austin Listi lifted a long, flyball triple to rightcenter to the push the early lead to 3-0.

SAN MARCOS, Texas – (TXST Media Relations) Texas State bounced back from its first loss at home in 11 games Friday night to beat the CSU Bakersfield Roadrunners, 5-2, and pull within two games of first place in the Western Athletic Conference. In a tied game, the Bobcats took the lead in the seventh and relied on strong pitching and defense to shut down the Roadrunners to close out the game for the win.

Kevin Sah reached base on a leadoff walk and stole his 22nd base of the season, putting him third all-time in the Texas State record books for most steals in a season, just two behind second place Adam Witek. With him at second, Morgan Mickan cut the two-run lead in half with a double to right center to plate Sah. Then Mickan took second and third on wild pitches to snag a short-lived lead.
