UTSA to conclude last road trip of season on Tuesday night at No. 4 Baylor
SAN ANTONIO — UTSA will conclude its final road trip of the season on Tuesday night when it travels to No. 2 Baylor for a 6:30 p.m. contest.
The Roadrunners (21-29) are coming off Sunday's 4-0 victory at Texas State, which salvaged the final game of the weekend I-35 rivalry series. Sophomores Michael Kraft and Matt Sims combined on a two-hit shutout and UTSA scored twice in the first, once in the fifth and again in the eighth, but it saw its Southland Conference Tournament hopes come to an end when Stephen F. Austin defeated Central Arkansas, 10-7.
Senior Casey Selsor continues to lead the team's offensive efforts with a .305 batting average. The San Antonio native also has 10 doubles, eight triples, a home run and 27 RBIs in his final campaign as a Roadrunner. Meanwhile, junior Ryan Dalton ranks second on the team with a .301 clip and the Sugar Land native also leads the squad with seven round-trippers.
UTSA has not named a starting pitcher for the contest.
The Bears (34-11) were swept by Oklahoma last weekend.
Baylor boasts a team batting average of .309 with six players hitting over .300, including Josh Ludy, who leads the team with a .349 mark to go along with a dozen doubles, eight homers and 52 RBIs.
Left-hander Brad Kuntz (4-2, 4.46 ERA) will start on the mound for the Bears.
Baylor owns a commanding 28-5 lead in the all-time series, but UTSA has split the last six meetings. In fact, all all three victories have come with the Bears holding a national ranking. UTSA upset then-No. 1 Baylor, 4-1, on April 24 at Wolff Stadium and that ended the Bears' 24-game winning streak.
