It's no secret that the Frogs have hit a bit of a rough patch lately, losing three of the last five games they've completed (and remember, they're still behind in that suspended game against Air Force that'll be completed in May). Sure, losing at Air Force hurts, especially the all-important RPI, but every team goes through tough stretches in a long season.
We'll learn a lot over the next week about this team's ability to respond to adversity as they look to redeem themselves in a five-game home stand that starts tonight against UT-Arlington. Paul Gerrish will be on the mound for the Frogs, and will look to continue the success he had in his first start of the season a week ago against Texas State (5⅔ scoreless innings). A weekend set against conference foe San Diego State is slated for Thursday through Saturday and then OU comes to town next Tuesday.
As the Frogs attempt to get back to their winning ways, hopefully the fans will continue to poor into Lupton Stadium at a record pace. With an average of just over 3,000 fans a game, TCU ranks in the Top 20 nationally in attendance.
