After losing to Air Force for just the second time in 20 all-time games on Friday, No. 5 TCU rebounded with a 20-6 victory over the Falcons at Falcon Field today in the first game of a doubleheader.
But the Falcons came right back in the second game and went punch-for-punch with the Horned Frogs for six-plus innings.
Because of TCU’s travel plans, the second game was suspended in the seventh inning with Air Force up, 16-15. The game will resume in Fort Worth when Air Force and TCU meet again on May 14. When the game was halted, there were two outs in the top of the seventh inning with no runners on base.
In the first game, TCU had 24 hits, including four home runs, and scored in eight of nine innings. Horned Frogs starter Kyle Winkler allowed six runs in seven innings while striking out six.
In the second game, TCU blasted eight home runs, but Air Force got some timely hits to build a one-run lead.
Air Force next plays on Tuesday at 3 p.m. against Colorado Christian.
