UTRGV Baseball Defeats Chicago State Friday Night
EDINBURG – Senior Trevelle Hill scattered four singles over a career-high tying eight innings to lead The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley baseball team to an 8-1 victory over Chicago State University (CSU) on Friday at UTRGV Baseball Stadium.
UTRGV (19-10, 5-2 WAC) has now won four in a row.
Hill (5-1) struck out five while walking three. The only run was unearned and came on a first inning sacrifice fly by Matt Sullivan.
UTRGV tied the game in the second on an error.
In the third, UTRGV loaded the bases with nobody out against Brett Gregory (1-5), setting up a go-ahead single by junior Christian Sepulveda. Two outs later, junior Nick Contreras hit a two-run single, and then sophomore Mercedes alum Oliver Closner IV and freshman Jacob Flores walked to force-in a run and give UTRGV a 5-1 lead.
That was it until the eighth, when junior Coleman Grubbs hit a two-run home run and junior Tyler Torres added an RBI-single.
Grubbs recorded his second three-hit game of the season, driving in a career-high tying two runs and scoring a season-high tying two runs. Torres finished 2-for-5. Sophomore Jacob Hirsh went 2-for-6 with a run scored. Junior Elijah Alexander walked twice and scored twice.
