Austin 15-5 Tuesday evening.The Horned Frogs started scoring runs early and never ceased.Backup catcher Colton Parish began the bottom of the first with a single which was followed by a Josh Watson walk to give them runners on first and second with no outs.Two straight singles from Michael Landestoy and Johnny Rizer scored a run and Adam Oviedo loaded the bases for Conner Shepherd. Shepherd drew the second walk of the inning, scoring Landestoy and giving the team a 3-1 lead.Coby Boulware would notch the team’s fourth hit of the inning, an RBI single that scored Rizer from third and grew the lead to three.Connor Wanhanen would hit a sac-fly that gave the Horned Frogs a 5-1 lead before Parish came up to bat for the second time in the inning and flew out to end it.The Horned Frogs would add two more runs in the fourth inning on doubles by Landestoy and Rizer. The 3-4-5 trio of those two and A.J. Balta combined for six hits and eight RBIs on the night.“Obviously today that’s a great way to show up after losing like that at Baylor,” Landestoy said. “We come every day to play and wearing this jersey we play to win.”The bottom of the fifth brought seven more runs after the Lumberjacks walked six of the 11 Horned Frog batters they faced in the inning. The team had just two hits in the inning.“They walked a ton but we had some hits in there and guys got some confidence,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said.As the team was building its 14-1 lead after five innings, first-year pitcher Russell Smith was doing his part to ensure there was no comeback from the Lumberjacks. After surrendering a leadoff double which would eventually score in the first, he proceeded to retire 12 straight SFA hitters.“He really pitched into those right-handed hitters well, and I think a lot of those pitches play no matter who we’re playing,” Schlossnagle said. “He had a really good changeup going too.”Smith finished the night with six strikeouts and just one walk. He allowed a two-run home run in the sixth inning but was at his best when his offense needed him.“We’re always going to be there to pick each other up and seeing Russ perform tonight was just awesome,” Balta said.All nine of the team’s starters would reach base safely in the game, with eight recording a hit. The 15 runs were a season-high for the Horned Frogs. Outside of having an offensive explosion and a first-year pitcher throw his best game of the season, the best moment of the night for the Horned Frogs came with two outs in the top of the ninth.Redshirt first-year pitcher Dion Henderson made his collegiate debut after suffering from elbow and shoulder injuries and not pitching since his senior year of high school.Henderson entered the game and promptly recorded a strikeout to end it.“The thing our team needed the most was the last out of the game,” Schlossnagle said. “The fact that Dion Henderson has actually pitched in a D1 baseball game is awesome.”Dion Henderson talks to the media after recording his first ever collegiate strikeout. (Photo by Benton McDonald.)Henderson was rated as the 13th best prospect in the state of Michigan coming out of high school and was drafted in the 27th round by the Cincinnati Reds in 2016.“It was just one of the best moments I’ve ever had in my career, period,” he said after his debut.The Horned Frogs will look to continue their winning ways when they take on No. 4 Texas Tech this weekend. The first game will start at 8:00 p.m. Friday night at Lupton Stadium.

Photo courtesy of TCU AthleticsNo. 12 TCU men’s tennis extended its win streak to six matches with wins over two top-25 ranked teams this weekend. Men’s tennis sweeps No. 14 Ole Miss, 4-0TCU men’s tennis won its fifth consecutive match Friday evening, taking down Ole Miss, 4-0. The win is the Horned Frogs third sweep of a top-15 team in the last two weeks, as they did the same to No. 10 NC State and No. 6 Texas A&M last week. TCU has now swept four of its last five opponents. “Today’s match was a battle and I’m proud of the way our guys found in every spot,” head coach David Roditi said. The first doubles win came from Luc Fomba and Bertus Kruger at No. 3 doubles. The duo won the final four games of the set to earn their sixth straight doubles victory. Fomba and Kruger lead the team with a 9-1 record in doubles competition. At No. 2 doubles, Sander Jong and Tadeas Paroulek went to a set tiebreak, to earn both the match and the doubles point for the Frogs, 7-6(5). “It was great to see Teddy and Sander come back from 5-2 down in the tiebreaker,” Roditi said. “They showed a lot of poise and resilience to give the team a huge point.” At No. 1 singles, Alastair Gray earned his fourth win over a ranked opponent this season when he defeated No. 55 Tim Sandkaulen in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4. The second singles win came from Fomba at the No. 2 position where he used a late break to win his opening set. To win the match, he served an ace on his second serve to defeat his opponent in consecutive sets. The win is Fomba’s fourth straight win and holds a team-best of 7-2 in singles play this season. To clinch the match, Kruger defeated his opponent at the No. 6 position, the third straight time he has secured the win for the Frogs. After winning his opening set 6-1, Kruger fell in the second, 3-6. From the start of the third, Kruger had come back to fight and win, defeating his opponent 6-1. The win is Kruger’s third straight singles win and second-consecutive three-set victory. As a team, TCU has now won nine straight singles matches at the No. 6 position, courtesy of Kruger, Jong and Tomas Jirousek. “Great performances by Alastair and Luc at the top, then we just needed one more,” Roditi said. “Bertus bounced back from a disappointing second set and showed maturity and grit to get that third set.” Horned Frogs take down top-10 opponent for third time in two weeksTCU men’s tennis extended its win streak to six matches with a 4-1 win over No. 8 Stanford. “I’m all smiles today,” Roditi said. “It’s an incredible win over probably the most prestigious tennis program in the country.” TCU took the doubles point with wins at No. 2 and No. 3. At No. 2 doubles, the No. 57 ranked pairing of Jong and Paroulek took down their opponent 6-1 in a quick match. The duo is now 8-3 this season. After Gray and Jacob Fearnley fell on court one, all eyes were on No. 3 where Fomba and Kruger held off a Stanford comeback bid to clinch the doubles point, 6-4. “I’m proud of our guys,” Roditi said. “No. 2 doubles had a great performance, then Fomba closes out the doubles point with some great serves.” The competitiveness between the two teams kept up during singles play. All six first sets were tied at 4-4, eventually leading to the teams to split the first set 3-3 across all courts. The Frogs fought back in the second set, leading to a 4-1 win. At No. 1 singles, Gray faced No. 29 Axel Geller. After being tied at 4-4 in the first set, Gray won a late break and took the first set 6-4. In the second set, Gray held serve and never allowed Geller to get back into the play, fighting his way to a 6-4, 6-2 victory. “If there is a game ball, I got to give it to Alastair Gray, getting a win like that against such a great player,” Roditi said. “I’m really happy for him and proud of him. Nobody works harder.”The second singles point came from Jong on court four. He took the first set to a tie break, winning 7-6(3). In the second set, he earned his break and managed to hold it for a 6-3 win. The clinching win came from Paroulek at No. 3 singles over No. 75 Sangheet Sridhar. Paroulek held his serve in the first set to break through and win the first set, 7-5. In the second set, Paroulek earned his break early and walked away with his second-ranked win of the season, clinching the match for the Frogs. “Sander got it done and Teddy closed it out against a really good player,” Roditi said. “It was a great weekend for TCU. These are some of the days that make you really appreciative, as a coach, for the opportunity to be able to do what we do.” TCU will look to continue its win streak next weekend as they host Tulsa on Friday at 5:30 p.m. and Tulane on Sunday at 1 p.m. Twitter Men’s tennis continues win streak, defeats USF 6-1 Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Facebook Nikki Spellman TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Twitter Men’s tennis finishes 2-1 at ITA Indoor Nationals Nikki Spellman Linkedin Previous articleStrategic communication seniors promote safe drinking class projectNext articleHoroscope: March 2, 2020 Nikki Spellman RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

But in the 20 markets where homes sold fastest in Q1, they sold after an average 21 days on the market; in the top three ZIP codes, in fact, barely past three weeks.While 12 different states made up the top 20 ZIP codes in the country, California had the most, with seven areas overall. Three—San Ramon, San Diego, and San Jose—were in the top 10. Colorado, which placed the overall hottest zip code in Colorado Springs’ 80922, had two markets in the top 10. The other was Littleton.Fort Worth, Texas, tied with San Ramon for second place on the list. Homes there sold in an average 16 days during the quarter. Colorado Springs saw homes closing in an average 15 days. But those were not the fastest moving markets of the quarter. Homes in San Ramon moved in 14 days and in Littleton, just 11. These latter ZIP codes were not ranked first and second because of prices and demand. Littleton’s homes sold for a median price of $432,000 in Q1, almost $150,000 higher than those in Colorado Springs. But demand was higher, the report stated, in Colorado Springs.“Colorado ZIPs continue their hot streak highlighting the meteoric rise of Denver and its neighboring metros over the past decade,” the report stated. That reflects “a pattern that other markets hope to replicate. In fact, we speculated as to whether Salt Lake City, Utah is the ‘New Denver’ earlier this year and now we see Salt Lake City breaking into the top 20 ZIPs.”Salt Lake, in fact, finished 20th on the list. Homes there moved in an average 21 days during the quarter.The only ZIP codes outside the West and Midwest to break the top 20 were Melrose, Massachusetts; Rochester, New York; and Montclair, New Jersey.  Homes in those markets moved, on average, between 19 and 26 days on the market, according to the report.The largest surprise, the report stated, was Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City, which finished tenth overall. Homes moved an average 25 days after being put on the market in the first quarter.  “The Kansas City metropolitan area itself has been hot this spring,” the report stated. “Overland Park is leading the pack in a new set of boiling hot neighborhoods in the Midwest.” The median price for a home in the top 20 markets was $377,000, the report stated. That’s about one-and-a-half times the national median during Q1.
