College Baseball: Texas State prepares for big WAC series
Once sophomore right fielder Cody Lovejoy squeezed the final out of Tuesday’s 4-1 win over Texas A&M, Texas State could finally relax a bit. Not only was the Bobcats’ victory physically taxing, but it also fatigued them mentally.
Prior to the game, Texas State remembered those affected by the horrific explosion in West and Heath Harris, who is the best friend of sophomore shortstop Garrett Mattlage, threw out the first pitch. Harris’ father, Kenny ‘Lucky’ Harris, died last Wednesday.
Mattlage, while somber about the events that transpired April 17 in his hometown, looked forward to this weekend’s gigantic series with first-place Cal State-Bakersfield.
