TCU wins FW regional, date with Texas
By Josh Davis
FORT WORTH, Texas -- The Horned Frogs have advanced to a Super Regional date against the Texas Longhorns next weekend in Austin.
Texas beat Rice, 4-1, earlier this evening and TCU beat Baylor, 9-0, to advance.
The Frogs added four runs in the top of the ninth as Baylor closer Brooks Pinckard imploded, as did his defense around him. Pinckard gave up six hits and a walk, totaling five earned runs. Kevin Winter came in to get the Bears out of the inning.
TCU finally removed starter Steven Maxwell in the ninth for Kaleb Merck, who escaped the inning scoreless after facing five batters.
