Cole Beckham (SO/Texarkana, TX) went 9-for-15 at the plate with two home runs and six RBIs in a 4-0 week for the Eagles. The sophomore outfielder hit safely in all four games including a 3-for-4 effort with two doubles in an 11-2 win over Ouachita Baptist University (Ark.). Beckham also propelled TAMUT to a three-game sweep of RRAC opponent, Texas College. The Texarkana native was 2-for-3 with a homer in the second game before capping the series with a 3-for-3 outing that included a two-run blast. For the week, Beckham scored eight runs and walked twice. He is now tied for the conference lead in homers (6) and RBIs (20). Playing in its first season as an RRAC member, the Eagles are currently in first with a 5-1 conference mark and 13-10 record overall.
Jacob Cobb-Adams (SR/Kailua, HI) took the mound in the middle game of TAMUT’s series with Texas College and delivered the first complete game no-hitter in school history. The senior righthander from Kailua, Hawaii, struck out 11 hitters while allowing only three walks in seven innings of scoreless pitching in a 14-0 victory. Cobb-Adams lowered his ERA to 1.89 and moved to 2-0 on the season.
