UT Arlington picked up its second nonconference win in as many days, beating Arlington Baptist 16-3 Wednesday afternoon at Clay Gould Ballpark.

The Mavericks outscored Texas Wesleyan and Arlington Baptist 27-6 in the two wins this week ahead of this weekend’s Sun Belt Conference series at Arkansas-Little Rock.

The Mavericks (22-24) had a shaky bottom of the first defensively, and the Patriots (24-28) scored twice against UTA starter Zach Thompson. But UTA rebounded in its first at-bat, scoring a season-high 10 runs on nine hits, including home runs from John Michael Twichell and Matt Shortall.

The Mavericks added three runs in the fourth, including a two-run single by Darien McLemore. Three runs in the fifth closed out a season-high scoring effort for UTA. The game was called in the seventh due to the run rule.
