UTSA Baseball struggled on Tuesday night as they fell to a heavy 6-1 loss to Texas A&M Corpus Christi at Roadrunner Field.
It was an offensive force of Brandon Tierney, Jordan Lee and Kyle Danford who tore UTSA apart going 8-of-13 between them with four runs and three RBIs.
The bright note for UTSA was Baker, the only man who managed multiple hits going 2-for-4 while Mike Warren extended his reached base streak to 19 for a career high, after getting on three times, all unearned as he was walked once and hit by pitch twice.
The Islanders set the tone for the match from the very start with three runs scored beginning with Tyler Weare’s RBI single bringing home Tierney, who lead off the game.
Disaster struck for the second run as Dominic Lopez drew a bases loaded walk to make it two before Zack Gibson’s RBI ground out made it 3-0 through the first half-inning.
In the second Danford managed to make it four as he hit a ball up the middle of the infield to bring home Tierney for his second run of the game.
After a scoreless tyhird inning, the Roadrunners managed their only run as Jesse Paker stepped up at lead-off and hit the ball over the left field wall to make it 4-1.
That was the only joy the Roadrunners would have as the bullpen continued to hold off the UTSA offense, allowing two hits between all four relievers.
In the eighth the game was wrapped up with RBI singles to Lee and Danford giving the final score of 6-1, an impressive win for the Southland team.
