The Troy Trojans (27-12) scored 10 straight runs to pick up a 10-8 Sun Belt Conference baseball win over the Texas State Bobcats (25-14) on Friday.

After the Bobcats went up 4-0 in the first inning, Troy scored 10 straight runs in the next seven innings to go up 10-4. Texas State attempted to rally by scoring four runs in the ninth inning but that was as close as they would get as Troy held on for the conference victory.

Troy’s Kole Myers went 3-for-5 at the plate with one RBI and two runs, while Caleb Bartolero went 2-for-4 and Tremayne Cobb Jr. went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run. Clay Stearns went 2-for-4 with an RBI and three runs. The Sun Belt’s current Home Run King also added to his tally with his 17th homer of the season.
