NCAA Baseball Regionals Scores: TCU, Rice Upset, Baylor, Texas A&M Win

There were a slew of upsets on Saturday in the NCAA Baseball Regional tournaments. Regional top seeded hosts Texas, TCU and Rice all were upset while Baylor and Texas A&M won their second games of the regional tournaments.

TCU lost 3-2 to Dallas Baptist, despite having lefty ace Matt Purke on the hill. Purke lasted only five innings, giving up two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out six. Trent Appleby finished the game for TCU, pitching three innings, giving up three hits and a run.

TCU's bats could not solve Jared Stafford, who pitched 8.1 innings for Dallas Baptist, giving up just two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two. 

The Horned Frogs and Longhorns weren't the only host teams to lose, though, as the Rice Owls fell to the Baylor Bears 3-2. Baylor starter Josh Turley went the distance, pitching a complete game giving up just two runs (one earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out seven. Baylor catcher Josh Ludy went 1-4 while driving in two runs to help Baylor en route to the victory.

Texas A&M, like Baylor, won on the arm of their starting pitcher. Ross Stirpling pitched a complete game for the Aggies, giving up three runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out five en route to the 6-3 victory. Despite only scoring six runs, the Aggies' offense pounded out 14 hits against Seton Hall. 

All hope is not lost for TCU, Texas and Rice though, as all three teams will be in action early on Sunday.
