Alexander Helps Lead Frogs to Omaha

Alexander

Alexander leads the CWS-bound TCU with 10 victories this season.

Tyler Alexander’s first year playing college baseball has been a memorable one, and it keeps getting better. The TCU Horned Frogs are headed to their second appearance in the College World Series.

The left-hander is Omaha-bound as one of TCU’s top starters. He was named Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball News. He recently led the Frogs to the Big 12 tournament championship tossing a complete game against Oklahoma State in the championship.

The Frogs open CWS action against Big 12 mate Texas Tech at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 15. Follow TCU baseball on Twitter.

Alexander leads the team in victories at 10-3. He holds a 2.16 ERA and has 58 strikeouts and 11 walks in 95.2 innings. Alexander served as the Frogs’ No. 3 starter in Big 12 play.

Softball, Baseball Teams 5A Playoff Bound

Carroll left-hander Tyler Alexander earned the victory last Friday against Saginaw going four innings and produced 10 strikeouts.

Despite falling in the regular season finale, the Carroll Lady Dragon softball team is bound for the Class 5A postseason. The Lady Dragons finished fourth in District 7-5A and will face Plano East, the district champion from 8-5A. The Lady Dragons (13-8, 8-6) lost last Friday to Denton Guyer 8-3, but were helped by Keller Central, which defeated Coppell. It allowed Carroll to avoid a tie with Coppell for fourth place.

Dragons Blast Saginaw, Aim For Title
The Carroll Dragon baseball team blanked Saginaw last Friday 15-0. The Dragons were led at the plate by Drew Brown, Ben Sego and Kenny Hill  —  each had three hits apiece. Pitcher Tyler Alexander went four innings and had 10 strikeouts. The Dragons (17-9, 10-3) can earn the District 7-5A championship on Friday with a victory against Denton Guyer in the regular season finale. Game time is 4 p.m. at Dragon Field. Carroll holds a one-game lead ahead of second-place Fossil Ridge.  Fossil Ridge ends the season Friday against Keller.
