The West Virginia baseball team lost their second straight game on Saturday as they suffered a 6-1 defeat at the hands of the TCU Horned Frogs.
Leading TCU (26-19, 8-9 Big 12) to victory was junior starting pitcher Charles King, who gave up only one run on four hits in a complete game.
West Virginia’s lone run came at the hands of sophomore infielder Tristen Hudson, who drove in a run off of an RBI groundout in the seventh inning.
However, the score came after the Horned Frogs had already built a six run lead.
The offensive surge from TCU started early as senior outfielder Josh Watson homered in the first inning.
In the third, junior catcher Alex Isola drove in two runs with a double. The Horned Frogs added two more runs in the fourth, as well as one more run in the fifth.
West Virginia (27-17, 10-10 Big 12) starting pitcher Jackson Wolf earned the loss, having given up five runs on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings of work. King picked up the win.
The Mountaineers and Horned Frogs will battle once more as they play the series finale on Sunday. First pitch is slated for 1 p.m.
