AN AWAKENING
Tuesday night's win over Dallas Baptist had a number of positives to it. The offense came to life, scoring a season-high six runs on a season-high 11 hits. It was just the third time this season the Horned Frogs scored first in a contest.

Cody Jones doubled his hit total with three hits in the contest. Brett Johnson collected two hits as did Derek Odell. Kevin Cron and Johnson also tallied their first RBIs of the season. Seven of the nine starters recorded a hit in the game.

More importantly, three of the six Frog runs came with two outs in the inning.

STARTING STRONG
In four of the seven games, TCU's starting pitcher has gone at least six innings.

Tuesday night, Trevor Seidenberger pitched six solid innings of no-hit baseball. He allowed just two base runners in his time on the mound - a lead-off walk in the fourth and a runner that reached on an error to open the seventh. The lefty fanned a career-high six.
