UTSA Baseball had their winning streak come to an end on Sunday night as they fell to a 5-2 loss to Marshall at Roadrunner Field.

Fielding errors cost UTSA dearly in this game as their four errors were converted in to three runs, the runs that proved to be the gap between the two schools.

After two scoreless innings, it was an error that let the Thundering Herd open the scoring as CJ Pickering’s error at second allowed the runner on base before a single from Corey Bird to score an RBI.

At the bottom of the frame UTSA responded, getting their own unearned run as an attempted pick-off saw John Welborn move from first to third, allowing an RJ Perucki single to score Welborn.

The errors crept back in to the Roadrunners game in the fifth and two more errors allowed two more runs, the first coming from an error at third from Perucki before a poor throw from Horacio Correa III allowed Sergio Leon to score.

In the sixth an impressive shot from Roberto Fajardo put Thundering Herd further in front as Fajardo stepped up with two out but managed an RBI single to left.

Perucki was able to make amends for his error in the eighth inning as he launched a solo shot over the left field wall to make it 5-2 and pull UTSA back in to the game.

Unfortunately for UTSA that was as close as they would get as Marshall closed out the game in the ninth with relative ease for a 5-2 win.
