The Texas State Bobcats defeated the Rice Owls with a strong 9-2 performance Wednesday night at Bobcat Stadium.
The Bobcats improve their record to 6-3 while Rice falls to 0-7.
The Bobcat pitching staff put together another dominant performance by allowing just five hits and two runs. Though senior pitcher Garrett Herrmann started the game allowing two hits, one run and five strikeouts, it was Matthew Nicholas who received the win by allowing no hits, no runs and one strikeout.
The Texas State offense continued their momentum from their 8-7 win over Lamar with another stellar performance despite the cold weather. Junior outfielder John Wuthrich kicked off the Bobcat offensive attack in the bottom of 1st inning with a solo home run toward left field, while junior infielder Dalton Shuffield churned out a memorable performance, going 3-4 with a double and three RBIs.
Texas State will go on the road for the weekend as the Bobcats prepare for a three-game series against the Houston Cougars. The Cougars sit at 2-5 after a loss to UTRGV on Wednesday.
