Entering Sunday’s rubber match with the Troy Trojans — whom they trailed by a half game in the Sun Belt standings — the Texas State Bobcats were on the cusp of dropping an important series at home.

SAN ANTONIO — Nick Gutierrez knew exactly what he needed to do.

He also understood that he didn’t have to do it all on his own.

The senior right hander — who entered in the fifth inning of San Marcos’ eventual 5-4 loss to Alamo Heights on Friday night in San Antonio — was called upon to keep his offense within striking distance.

Gutierrez accomplished that feat  — although it required some help from the fielders around him.

FLORESVILLE — San Marcos may have just hit its second gear.

If the Lady Rattlers’ 12-0 run-rule victory over Floresville on Friday night is any indication of the mentality of the team, Cathy Stoughton’s team figures to be playoff ready.

District 27-5A hasn’t come as much of a challenge to the Lady Rattlers so far this season.

San Marcos (22-4, 12-0 27-5A) has maintained its reputation as the team to beat throughout the entire campaign and has done so with relative ease.

College Baseball: Texas State drops first two games of series against UALR

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Cedric Vallieres’ bunt single to third that drove in Jared Huber brought the score to within one, but that was as close as Texas State got on Friday night against UALR.

The Trojans staved off the Bobcats' comeback attempt in the ninth inning to hold on for a 4-3 victory.

It wasn’t until Texas State stared a 4-0 deficit in the face before Jeremy Fikac's club began to claw its way back. Luke Sherley started off with a walk in the top of the third and was eventually driven home by Vallieres.
