All Texas State freshman Matt Smith wanted to do was eat.
When Smith stepped up to the plate Thursday night with two runners on in the bottom of the 12th inning, he had fajitas on his mind. If Smith’s sinking line drive found grass, he and his teammates could finally enjoy their catered dinner.
“I was just hoping for it to drop, so we could go home and eat,” Smith said. “I got a fastball down the middle and I tried to take advantage of it.”
