Ian Bailey, Chase Keng and Isaiah Walker combined for 10 hits between them on Sunday afternoon as the UTSA Roadrunners downed the Old Dominion Monarchs, 13-4, and clinched a Conference USA weekend series on the road.
After losing the opener 11-0 on Friday, things didn’t look too promising for the Roadrunners. But they rallied to win 8-7 in 11 innings on Saturday and then pounded out 16 hits to cruise in the series finale.
As a result, the Roadrunners have moved into a tie for third place in the C-USA. Behind league-leading Southern Miss and Louisiana Tech, UTSA (21-11, 7-5) is tied with the UAB Blazers and the Florida Atlantic Owls.
