UT Arlington fell victim to a couple of big numbers that played crucial roles in the Mavericks being swept at home in a doubleheader against Appalachian State.

In the opening game, UTA (21-25, 11-11) belted out 10 hits but left 13 men on base in a 5-0 loss to Appalachian State (14-31, 5-17).

The second game, which was necessary after Friday's scheduled opener was postponed by rain, saw three App State pitchers account for 13 strikeouts in a 2-1 victory.

UTA's lone run in the nightcap came on a two-out, solo homer by Noah Vaughan in the third inning.

Appalachian State scored on a home run in the second and a sacrifice fly in the third.

Ka’ikepono Anderson made his 11th start of the year for UTA and pitched seven innings, allowing six hits, two runs, walking one and striking out six.

The series finale is at noon Sunday at Clay Gould Ballpark.
