Baseball team to host neighboring Mavericks

A slumping Horned Frog baseball team hopes to return to the win column tonight at Lupton Stadium against a streaking UT-Arlington team.

The Horned Frogs (15-9, 3-3 MWC) are coming off a disappointing weekend series where the team dropped two of three games to a visiting San Diego State team. The Horned Frogs have now lost four of their last six games.

UTA (15-11) has won nine of its last ten contests, most recently disposing of a Nicholls State team in a three-game sweep in Louisiana. The UTA Mavericks have also found recent success against Northwestern State, Minnesota and UT-San Antonio.

Earlier this month, the Horned Frogs traveled east on Interstate 30 to face the Mavericks in Arlington and walked away with an 11-3 victory. Junior catcher Bryan Holaday had a nice game, going 2-for-3 at the plate and driving in three runs.

Starting pitcher Greg Holle picked up the win for the Horned Frogs. The sophomore went four innings, allowed three hits, one run and struck out three Maverick batters.

When: 6:30 p.m. Wednesday
Where: Lupton Stadium

Tonight’s game will mark the halfway point of the team’s seven-game home stand.

Following tonight’s contest, the Horned Frogs will host the conference-leading New Mexico Lobos in
a three-game series starting Friday. Next week, the team heads south to face UT-Austin, and UT-Pan American in Edinburg.

The next home game following the team’s round of away games is scheduled for Monday, April 13 against Texas Tech.
