Tarleton State baseball coach Bryan Conger is preaching consistency to his team as it faces its toughest games of the season.
“It is the same thing that we have been striving for all year,” Conger said. “If we are good enough to earn it we will, and if we aren’t then we won’t.”
The Texans (22-20, 12-16 Lone Star Conference) have lacked offensive consistency. They open a series at second-place West Texas A&M with a doubleheader at 5 p.m. Friday and close the season against first-place Texas A&M-Kingsville.
Tarleton will look toward offensive leaders Jared Musgrove and Alvaro Moreno. Musgrove, a senior from Houston, leads the LSC with a .396 batting average. Moreno, a senior from McAllen, is second on the team with a .357 average.
“They are making good decisions at the plate,” Conger said. “They have been the most consistent at the plate and are hitting the ball well for us.”
