Opportunities haven’t presented themselves for Texas State to turn its season around too often, but they showed up last weekend in the form of Texas-San Antonio.
If the Bobcats put their bad juju aside and found a way to take the series from the rival Roadrunners, maybe — just maybe — Ricci Woodard’s team could make something of its dismal campaign. Instead, UTSA dealt Texas State another crushing blow.
Despite multiple occasions to win at least two games from the Roadrunners, including last Saturday’s 3-1 loss, the Bobcats couldn’t get it done. UTSA swept Texas State, which hadn’t ocurred in San Marcos since 1996.
“We know right now that we need to do all the little things right and if we don’t, we lose momentum and can’t make things happen,” Woodard said. “We had a chance in every single one of these games, but we just have to find something to push us over the edge to execute when we need to execute.”
Outside of their first run, which the Roadrunners (18-12) gifted to them thanks to an error on an easy throw, the Bobcats (5-25) did little to create any offense.
