UT Arlington combined to score seven runs in the fourth and fifth innings on the way to an 11-6 victory over Troy in Friday night’s opener of a Sun Belt Conference baseball series.

The Mavericks (19-23, 10-9 Sun Belt) belted 13 hits.

Eric Tate, Matt Shortall, Ryan Bottger and Darien McLemore each knocked in two runs. Derek Miller had three hits and scored four runs.

McLemore opened both big innings with a walk.

Holding a 2-0 lead, UTA scored four runs in the fourth inning. McLemore walked, Travis Sibley had a bunt single, Miller was hit by a pitch and Shortall sent a shot halfway up the wall in right field that ended up as a single, but knocked in two runs. Bottger followed with a run-scoring single.

The Mavericks tacked on three more runs in the fifth. McLemore walked, moved up on a ground ball, then scored on a single by Miller. Tate followed with a two-run home run, giving UTA a 9-1 lead.

Troy rallied for five runs in the bottom of the inning. But McLemore hit a two-run homer in the ninth.
