Fifth-ranked TCU uses five-run third inning to rally past No. 19 Dallas Baptist

  Tyler Alexander picked up his second win of the season, allowing two runs in eight innings.

FORT WORTH -- Tyler Alexander turned in a solid eight innings on the mound and No. 5 TCU used a five-run third inning to stretch its winning streak to three games with a 6-2 win against No. 19 Dallas Baptist on Tuesday night.

After a shaky first inning, Alexander (2-2) settled in and twirled a season-high eight innings to help guide the Frogs (25-6) past the Patriots. He allowed a pair of runs on seven hits, hit two batters and struck out five. Riley Ferrell fanned two of the three batters he faced in the ninth.

Dallas Baptist jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning as it sent six men to the plate. Drew Turbin led off the game with a double and was standing on third with nobody out after an infield single. An errant pick-off throw put the Patriots in front 1-0. With one out, Daniel Salters drove in another run to push the lead to two.

TCU batted around in the third and scored five times to take a lead it would never relinquish. Dane Steinhagen kicked off the inning with a base hit to center. He moved to second on an error in the outfield and the Frogs were in business. Derek Odell reached on a bunt single to put runners on the corners with nobody out. Jeremie Fagnan hit a sacrifice fly to cut the DBU lead in half, 2-1.

Four consecutive two-out hits broke the game open. Connor Wanhanen tied the game with a base hit through the right side. The Patriots gifted Wanhanen two extra bases and he scored easily on a Garrett Crain infield single. Evan Skoug and Keaton Jones followed with base hits to push the lead to 5-2.

Fagnan launched a two-out solo home run in the fourth inning to extend the TCU lead to four, 6-2. The long ball was his second of the season.
