TCU (45-15) is going to the NCAA Super Regionals for the fourth time since 2009. They'll host the Super Regionals for the first time in school history when the Pepperdine Waves (42-16) come to Fort Worth.
Freshman sensation, Tyler Alexander (10-3) scattered 6 hits and struck out 5 on his way to his second consecutive complete game. In doing so, the young lefty lowered his ERA to a miniscule 1.94. The 6-1 victory over Sam Houston State (43-19) was TCU's most complete game of the Regional. With Alexander's emergence, TCU has an argument for being the best starting rotation in the country.
Pepperdine will be making their first appearance in an NCAA Super Regional since the new format was introduced in 1999 but will present a difficult road block for TCU in their quest for Omaha.
Maybe the best news of the evening was the execution on the part of the TCU offense. With the Frogs scuffling at the plate through the first two games of the Fort Worth Regional, many were wondering if they had reverted back to their old ways at the plate. All of those fears were put to rest as TCU scored 6 runs on 14 hits and hit the ball hard all night long.
With a motivated Pepperdine team coming to town, he Frogs will need Fort Worth to turn out in record numbers again to help them push through to Omaha.
