Sophomore catcher Kyle Arnsberg came off the bench and drove in five runs on two hits, including a grand slam home run in his first at-bat, but Louisiana Tech University fell in its season baseball opener 17-10 to the University of Texas-Arlington Friday night at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.
Among the offensive highlights for Tech was infielder Ryan Gebhardt had a single that stretched his consecutive games’ hitting streak to 18 extending from last year. The Monroe product has also reached base in his last 30 games, again extending to last year.
“We have a lot of new faces out there,” said Simoneaux. “It’s going to take 10-15 games to figure out line-ups and understand the tenacity it takes to play well. It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.”
