College Softball: South Alabama scores late in 2-0 victory over UL Lafayette to claim SBC crown

The two best teams in the Sun Belt went toe-to-toe during Saturday’s tournament championship game inside Bobcat Softball Stadium.

More accurately, UL Lafayette and South Alabama engaged in a pitcher’s duel across six innings.

Yet, all it took was one mistake from someone other than the two starting pitchers to break the scoreless drought.

Running and Fitness: Bikers often forget this important item while riding

Running with Moe

Runners generally are very fit individuals and like to stay active.  

While running is the main form of exercise, many of them ride bicycles as another type of exercise.  

The aerobic benefits are good and one added benefit is that a person can ride a bike for an hour or more without any trouble and keep that heart rate up for the entire time.

College Baseball: Bobcats can't hold off late rally from Arkansas State in 8-5 loss

It wasn't as if Texas State didn't have its chances to put away Arkansas State for good.

In fact, the Bobcats hammered out 11 hits and chased starter David Owen in the fifth inning.

And yet due in large part to 11 strikeouts, Texas State couldn't notch the one big hit it needed to open up a gap on the Red Wolves who hung around until the seventh inning when they pounced on the hosts.

A-State's Joe Schrimpf made the Bobcats pay for their inability to convert in key situations at the plate.

High School Baseball: Rattlers move one step closer to area finals, top McCollum in extras

Nick Gutierrez pushed San Marcos within one game of breaking its area finals drought.

With the game deadlocked in the ninth inning, the senior chopped a seeing-eye single up the middle to send the Rattlers to a 4-3 walk-off victory over San Antonio McCollum during Thursday night’s game one of the bi-district finals.  

McCollum jumped out to a 3-0 lead off San Marcos starter Derek Gonzales in the first inning.

College Baseball: Texas State's happy to be back home

It has been a while since Texas State has played in front of a friendly crowd.

In fact, when the Bobcats open up a three-game set against Arkansas State at 6 p.m. tonight inside Bobcat Ballpark, Jeremy Fikac’s team will play its first home game in the past 19 days.

Texas State (20-26-1, 12-12 Sun Belt), which sits on the tournament bubble because Fikac’s team is sixth in the conference standings, does have one huge advantage during the final two weeks of the regular season: The Bobcats are at home.
