View Comments

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) – TCU scored 22 runs over the last four innings to stay alive in the NCAA tournament and eliminate Dayton with a 28-12 victory Saturday in the College Station Regional.

Dayton led 9-6 going into the sixth before TCU (37-20) scored seven in the top half of that inning to grab a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. Brance Rivera had six RBIs, while Jerrick Suiter had five hits. Justin Scharf (3-2) earned the victory by tossing 1 1/3 scoreless innings of relief.

It was the most runs scored by the Horned Frogs since a 30-2 victory over Louisville in 2003.

The Flyers (31-30) were playing in their first NCAA tournament.

The teams played for more than four hours in temperatures reaching 98 degrees.
