An ominous hashtag popped up on Twitter shortly after Texas State dispatched of CSU Bakersfield in Sunday’s series finale: #DontLetTheCatsGetHot.
For more than half of the season, the Bobcats struggled to find a groove. Whenever Texas State found momentum, Ty Harrington’s bunch lost it soon after.
Then the Bobcats entered the home stretch — and they’re finally playing like a well-oiled machine.
Texas State won four out of its last five games, including last Tuesday’s 4-1 victory over in-state foe Texas A&M. Throw in last weekend’s series win over the Roadrunners and the Bobcats haven’t lost a home series since 2009.
Even though CSUB entered the three-game set as one of the Western Athletic Conference’s best teams, Texas State made the Roadrunners look mediocre. The Bobcats scored 21 runs against the WAC’s best pitching staff, including 11 on Sunday thanks to a four-RBI effort from senior outfielder Kevin Sah and a three-RBI afternoon by senior Andrew Stumph.
Before Texas State continues its assault on the WAC standings, where Harrington’s team is just one game back of CSUB now, it must take on Houston Baptist. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. tonight at Bobcat Ballpark.
