TCU baseball's intrasquad series gives rookies playtime!

After two weekend games, the best-of-five Purple-White World Series is tied at one game all.

Each team had impressive showings in its respective victories, with the Purple-clad Horned Frogs taking game one, 7-2. The White team answered with a 7-0 win Saturday.

Head coach Jim Schlossnagle said he liked the way freshman second baseman Aaron Schultz looked at the plate for the White team through the first two games. Schultz had a hit in each game.

On the pitching side, Saturday's starters, freshman right-hander Greg Holle and sophomore left-hander Derek VerHagen, stood out for Schlossnagle.

Holle pitched 4 2-3 innings and allowed two hits and two walks in the shutout for the White team during game two. VerHagen received no run support, surrendering two runs on four hits for the Purple team. The lefty also had seven strikeouts.

For the Purple team, sophomore right-hander Tyler Lockwood racked up five innings in relief of junior right-hander Andrew Cashner, a transfer from Angelina College.
