UMHB's early lead holds up in 5-4 win over No. 6 Texas Lutheran
SEGUIN, Texas -- Mary Hardin-Baylor struck for four runs in the second inning and made its early lead hold up in a 5-4 upset win Tuesday night against sixth-ranked Texas Lutheran.

At TLU's Katt-Isbel Field, the Crusaders (10-24) snapped a six-game skid with the non-conference win.

The Bulldogs fell to 27-9 overall.

Caimyn Holiday delivered a two-run double in the second, and Jack Herbert had a two-run single, also in the second.

Andrew Hutchings moved to 3-1 with the win. He went two innings and allowed just one hit.

Chase Cutler (Georgetown/Eastview) took the loss for the Bulldogs. He dropped to 1-1.

Austin Colon (La Grange/La Grange), Cullen Motsinger (Houston/Cypress Ranch), and Blade Strzelczyk (San Antonio/East Central) collected RBI for TLU.

TLU returns to Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference action this Friday and Saturday with a three-game road series against Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas.

The Bulldogs need two wins in the series to secure the top seed in the upcoming SCAC Championship tournament and a share of the SCAC regular-season championship. Three wins gives TLU the outright SCAC regular-season title.

Game one Friday in Kerrville starts at 2 p.m. Saturday's doubleheader is set for a noon start.
