College Baseball: I-35 rivalry takes on familiar look even with Harrington out of the spotlight

For the first time in sixteen years, there was a midweek Texas State-UTSA baseball game and Ty Harrington wasn't in the dugout during the festivities.

He may have still been there physically, but on this night his role was reduced to viewing the game with friends and family inside a private box in the left field area of Bobcat Ballpark as he continues to recover from his courageous bout with cancer.  

Instead, it was acting head coach Jeremy Fikac who led the team from Harrington's familiar perch in Texas State's dugout.

It wasn't a matter of if Texas State was going to score enough runs to topple UTSA.

Rather, it was a matter of when those runs were going to be scored.  

The when happened during the seventh inning as the Bobcats pushed across seven runs — all of which came with two outs — en route to an 11-7 victory over the Roadrunners on Tuesday night inside Bobcat Ballpark.

Even after Texas State left the Southland Conference back in 2012, it has continued to schedule midweek games against its former rivals.

Now, the Bobcats (16-12, 4-2 Sun Belt) turn their attention to another former SLC opponent in Stephen F. Austin (7-15). The two teams will play a doubleheader starting at noon today inside Bobcat Softball Stadium.
