Horned Frogs to play BYU in second series of the season

The No. 10 Horned Frogs (23-7) will travel to Provo this week to play their second series of the season against conference opponent BYU (16-16). Earlier in the season, TCU won the series against the Cougars 2-1.

TCU enters the series with a four-game winning streak in which the pitching staff allowed only five total runs.

The trio of starting pitchers, freshman Matt Purke, sophomore Kyle Winkler and red shirt junior Steven Maxwell, have a combined 14-0 record.

Senior pitcher Tyler Lockwood, who earned the win for the Horned Frogs on Tuesday night, is confident in the ability of his team.

“We’re feeling great,” Lockwood said. “We’re just going to take it day by day and roll with whatever comes at us.”

Although the Cougars have struggled this season, they just completed a two-game series sweep against No. 20 Kansas, improving their record to .500 for the season.

Head coach Jim Schlossnagle said he considers the Horned Frogs’ recent performance as their best play all season.

“We need to keep doing what we’ve been doing and remain consistent,” Schlossnagle said.
