Post Game Thread - Vs. UTRGV
TXST is back in Bobcat Ballpark for a brief one-game stand vs the UTRGV Vaqueros Tuesday night at 6pm. The Vaqueros are led by first year head coach Derek Matlock, who was a prominent assistant for TXST for many years.

UTRGV is 16-16 on the season.

TXST has not announced a starting pitcher (becoming very commonplace as this season progresses). My money is on Pagano after a strong outing last week in his first start this season. If not Pagano, likely Lewis.

2-1 loss in ten innings.

UTRGVs starter was making his first career start, had an 8.49 ERA, opponents were hitting .354 against him, and he had 6 strikeouts on the season.

He struck out 9 of our batters and only gave up a run by balking in a run.

We can't hit.

I guess that no one will do the hittin'.

When did Derrick Matlock leave TXST? Went to West Virginia, wanted to come back to Texas. Took the UTRGV job and comes back to beat old boss in first year of new job. HMMMM.
'Cats pitched well and had some fine defensive plays, but from what I saw last night--that was no fluke, the better team won.

I'm in my 50th year of rootin' on the Bobcats so I'm used to being on the losing end--just wish it didn't happen so often.

If memory serves Matlock's last year in San Marcos was 2012. Think he was at WVU from 13-17.
