Frisco Classic crown DBU as tournament champion, improving to 10-1 on season

The crowds came out starting Friday afternoon with excitement for a weekend of great college baseball on the horizon.  Game 1 of the Frisco Classic featured Dallas Baptist University against the surging Arizona Wildcats.  DBU was able to have 13 hits to Arizona’s 9.  DBU emerged victorious 4 to 3, in an epic pitching performance by Ryan Johnson that pitched for 6.2 innings, recording 14 strikeouts on 3 earned runs.  DBU was off to a great start for the tournament.  Game 2 saw the Crimson Tide of Alabama against Indiana University. 

A dominating performance by Alabama routing Indiana 12 to 0 that was called final in 7 innings.  Alabama and DBU stayed undefeated heading into the Saturday games.  Alabama and Arizona played an exciting game for Game 3 of the Frisco Classic.  The game went 9 innings, with Alabama improving to 2-0 on the tournament, beating Arizona 7 to 6.  Game 4 surprisingly showed that Indiana belonged to play in this tournament by defeating DBU 9 to 7 and now improved to 1-1 on the tournament and dropped DBU to 1-1 on the tournament. 

Sunday’s Game 5 was a day full of runs scored starting with Arizona beating Indiana 12 to 1 in 7 innings.  Arizona and Indiana ended the tournament with a 1-2 record, and now set up the championship game Alabama (2-0) for the tournament against DBU (1-1) for the weekend.  Alabama got out to a quick start going up 5 to 3 in the 4th inning, but DBU continued to battle it out, and scored 2 runs in the 6th inning with a Krauss two-run homerun to tie the game and force extra innings.  DBU’s Grant Jay launched a two run left-center homerun in the 12th inning to clinch the Frisco Classic for Dallas Baptist University 7 to 5 over Alabama  and improve their season record 10-1 and will be a force to be reckoned with in Conference USA and possible Regional and Super Regionals.
