Zags Come From Behind to Down #7/9 TCU

Score two in the seventh and hang on for 4-3 lead

FORT WORTH, Texas--With strong pitching and timely run-producing, the Gonzaga University baseball team came from behind to beat No. 7/9 TCU by a 4-3 tally Friday night at Lupton Stadium in Fort Worth Texas...

Gonzaga starting pitcher Brandon Bailey tossed seven innings with nine strikeouts while allowing three runs, one each in the second, third, and fourth innings. The Broomfield, Colo., native settled down in his final two innings though, retiring his final six batters faced. He made way for junior reliever Sam Hellinger in the eighth, and the junior transfer kept pace by setting down the heart of TCU's order. He also retired the first two batters in the ninth, but Merrill made things interesting by tripling to right field, putting TCU's tying run 90 feet away. Redshirt freshman Daniel Bies replaced Hellinger and then got Steinhagen to swing at strike three, saving the win for Gonzaga. It's Bies' first career save and Bailey's second win of the season...

Next Up:

The Zags (5-4) will continue their time in Fort Worth with the second of three games against No. 7/9 TCU Saturday, March 5. First pitch for game two is slated for 12:00 p.m. Pacific (2:00 p.m. Central). Junior right hander Justin Vernia will take the mound for Gonzaga while the Horned Frogs will counter with RHP Brian Howard.

TCU jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back. You could see why they are a top 10 team, with 3 trips to the CWS in the last 5 years.

Zags made too many mental mistakes by getting picked off first.

We had a great time, beautiful Texas day, and Lupton Field is a gorgeous facility.
