Baseball looking forward to test at Shriners Classic

The Cougars open the weekend at 3 p.m. Friday against the Horned Frogs, who have started the season 5-2.

Junior Nick Lodolo has started both of TCU’s previous Friday night games. Though both times ended up being losses, he has allowed just four runs in his 12 innings pitched.

TCU’s offense could not get going in the 2-0 and 4-1 losses, but overall the team has great hitters.

The Horned Frogs have six players batting over .300, and the team as a whole has hit .311.
