Texas State needed someone to deliver a clutch hit.

After all, the Bobcats had plenty of chances to retake the lead on Friday night, but couldn’t make their opponent pay.

And just when it seemed as if Texas State might not reward Lucas Humpal for his resurgent outing, Colby Targun put such talk to rest with a go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning. The Bobcats held on from there for a 4-3 victory over UL Monroe during Friday night’s Sun Belt opener inside Bobcat Ballpark.

Despite a 67-64 loss to Appalachian State on Thursday, Texas State still clinched a berth into next week’s Sun Belt Tournament.

The Bobcats — who would have secured a trip to New Orleans with a win — instead relied on some help from Georgia State and South Alabama. As a result of the Jaguars’ 81-76 victory over Arkansas State and the Panthers’ 58-50 triumph over UL Monroe, Texas State locked up a spot in the top eight.

BOONE, N.C. — Appalachian State has been masterful in close games. Texas State hasn’t been effective at overcoming late-game deficits.

Yet on Thursday night inside the Holmes Center, the Bobcats had their chances to turn that scenario on its head. Texas State remained within one score of the Mountaineers throughout the final 42 seconds of Thursday’s tilt.

College Baseball: Texas State dives into Sun Belt play tonight

The arrival of conference play offers a clean slate for every team. And in the case of Texas State, that’s exactly what Jeremy Fikac’s team needs at this point in the season.

The Bobcats probably thought they were on the right track after posting three consecutive victories, including an upset over No. 6 Houston. But just when Texas State’s campaign seemed to be on an upward track, Fikac’s team suffered through yet-another difficult series. The Bobcats (3-8-1) dropped the final three games of their four-game set with Central Michigan.
