Texas State’s baseball team went (3-1) at the Lake Area Classic last weekend in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The Bobcat’s record stretches to (5-2).

Texas State lost the first game of the tournament against Creighton 5-6. Creighton went up by 5 runs early in the game, hitting three home runs in the first three innings. Texas State threatened a late-game comeback but failed to bring home any runs against Creighton’s last three pitchers.

After the loss to Creighton, Texas State faced McNeese State in the second game of a doubleheader where they would go on to win 18-10 in the highest-scoring game of the season. Texas State was able to manage 18 runs on 16 hits.

Leading the way for Texas State’s offense was Jaylen Hubbard and Will Hollis. Hubbard had four hits in five at-bats and scored three times. Hollis had three hits in four at-bats, one of which went for yard over the center field wall in the seventh inning.

Saturday Texas State had a rematch against Creighton. The second time around Texas State got on the board early in a tightly matched game. The Bobcats opened up the flood gates in the sixth inning, scoring six runs to take the lead from Creighton. Texas State would go on to win the game 12-9.

Shortstop Jaxon Williams led the team in offensive efficiency getting three hits in all three of his at-bats and tallying an RBI as well.

The Bobcats finished the tournament on Sunday beating the hosts McNeese State 5-3. The game was surprisingly low scoring considering both teams combined for 24 hits.

The win goes to junior reliever Brent Hebert, his first of the year. Hebert pitched two and two-thirds innings not allowing any runs and forcing six fly-outs.

Texas State baseball will play its next game against Texas A&M Corpus Christi on Wednesday 6 p.m. at Bobcat Ballpark.
