UTA baseball claims first place, pitcher ties school record

A big weekend jettisoned the UTA baseball team into first place in the Sun Belt Conference.

The Mavericks swept Arkansas State University on the road, improving their conference record to 11-4. It’s the second time this season they’ve swept a road conference series.

They currently hold a one-and-a-half game lead in conference play over second place University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

With the trio of wins, UTA now leads the nation in road victories with 15.

UTA history was made over the weekend as senior pitcher Andrew Gross tied the school’s all-time single-season record for saves at 14.
