Senior Ryan Newman hit his second career extra-innings walk-off home run Saturday to give Texas State (27-13) the final victory in a three-game sweep against Arkansas State University.

Texas State started the series against Arkansas State on Thursday with a high scoring 16-14 win in which the Bobcats had 11 hits, 13 RBIs, 13 walks and only six strikeouts.

John Wuthrich and Travon Benton accounted for nine of the RBIs. Wuthrich brought home three runs on a monstrous home run over the left field wall.

Texas State cycled through eight total pitchers in Thursday’s game. Dontae Woodard got the win and Anthony Pagano received a save.

Junior starting pitcher Nicholas Fraze captained Texas State to a 5-3 win over Arkansas State Friday in the second game of the series.

Fraze threw for seven and two-thirds innings only giving up three runs, three hits, and two walks. He also struck out three batters and is responsible for 20 force outs. Anthony Pagano earned a save offering one and one-third inning of squeaky clean pitching giving up zero hits, runs or walks and striking out three batters.

Redshirt junior reliever Brent Hebert (3-1) got Saturday’s win when he recorded the final two outs in the top of the 10th inning.

Connor Reich also turned in an impressive pitching performance on Saturday. The senior starter allowed seven hits, four runs, one walk and he also struck out 10 batters. This was Reich’s third career double-digit strikeout game.

Texas State gets back to action against The University of Texas Tuesday 6 p.m. at Bobcat Ballpark in San Marcos.
