Bobcats re-write books in bashing of Prairie View


Texas State left fielder Spenser Dennis, a transfer from Prairie View A&M, put up the biggest game of his career Tuesday night when his old mates visited Bobcat Field.

Indeed, Dennis led the way to a record performance by the Bobcats in a 33-3 win against Prairie View. The Bobcats set school marks for a single game with 33 runs, 31 hits and 30 RBI.

The win improved Texas State to 13-8 overall heading into a Wednesday night game at home against Texas Tech.

Dennis went seven-for-eight, setting single-game records for hits at Texas State and in the Southland Conference. Dennis also drove in four runs.

“The team told me about the record once I hit five,” said Dennis. “But I didn’t want to think about it. I wanted to focus on seeing the ball; hitting the ball and helping the team win. Setting the record just adds more to the win.”

Ben Theriot led the Bobcats with seven RBI.

Texas State scored six runs in the first inning, four in the second, two in the third, five in the fourth, six in the sixth and, finally, 10 in the eighth. And they scored all that with only one homer, by Theriot.

Almost as noteworthy for Texas State was the pitching. Starter Garret Carruth allowed two runs in five innings and three relievers combined to allow but three runs in one inning.
