TROY, Ala. — David Paiz wasn't a well-known name around Sun Belt circles before this week's proceedings in Troy, Alabama.

The senior is changing that fact rather quickly.

Thanks to Paiz's second consecutive big game at the plate — this time during Texas State's 10-2 victory over UT Arlington on Thursday night at Riddle-Pace Field — the Bobcats are headed to Saturday's semifinals of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament in Troy, Alabama.

TROY, Ala. — Strange circumstances set the stage for Texas State's 8-7 comeback victory over UL Lafayette.

You won’t hear the Bobcats complaining.

With Texas State staring at a 7-4 deficit during the ninth inning of Wednesday afternoon’s opening round game of the Sun Belt Conference Tournament at Riddle-Pace Field in Troy, Alabama, the Ragin’ Cajuns committed two costly errors, both of which came with the Bobcats down to their final out.

If at first you fall, get up and try again.

After the defense topped the offense in Tuesday’s spring practice session, the offense came back with a vengeance.

The defense ended Tuesday’s practice with two big defensive stops, but Wednesday afternoon it was all about the playmakers.

“We always say competition breathes success,” San Marcos head coach Mark Soto said. “There’s going to be a loser, it’s a game, but what I like seeing is when one group loses I want to see them respond that next day.”

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Even as the Sun Belt arrives at what commissioner Karl Benson called “a second full year of stable membership,” the league still adopted a few new regulations for the upcoming 2015-2016 academic year.

The conference enacted changes to its men’s basketball scheduling policy, increased the entry and exit fee for new and existing members and addressed the issue of cost of attendance during its annual spring meetings which wrapped up on Tuesday afternoon in Montgomery, Alabama.

Opinion: Surprising Astros are the toast of MLB right now

Special to the Record
 
The first-place Houston Astros are not exactly what you would expect to hear from anyone beyond the month of April. 
 
But it's true.
 
The same 'Stros who are usually only referenced primarily for their old rainbow softball looking unis and legendary pitcher (Nolan Ryan) are accomplishing something in the first two months of the Major League Baseball season that has rarely come to fruition.
 
They are winning.
 
And winning a lot.
