Luke Malone pitched into the sixth inning Friday night as the UTSA Roadrunners ended a two-game losing streak, downing the FIU Panthers 12-4 in a Conference USA home game.
Malone gave up three triples and a double, but he stayed with it and earned the victory, improving his record to a team-best 6-1.
After losses to Rice and Texas State on the road, UTSA needed to gain some momentum going the other direction.
Malone, pitching 5 and 1/3 innnings, answered the call. He gave up six hits and three runs, with only one of them earned. The senior struck out five and walked none.
Ian Bailey and Garrett Poston homered for the Roadrunners.
