The UT Arlington baseball team's disappointing 2018 campaign came to a screeching halt Wednesday, as the Mavs fell 12-2 to top-seeded Coastal Carolina in the second round of the Sun Belt Conference Championships.

Riding high off its first win in more than a month, UTA (22-34, 11-19 Sun Belt) kept the game within reach until the final three innings, during which the Chanticleers plated 11 of their 12 runs. All five Mavs' pitchers in Wednesday's game allowed at least one run.

UTA's offense did manage to notch 10 hits, including two each from Christian Hollie, Josh Minjarez and Omar Salinas, but only scored two runs. The Mavs only won two of their final 17 games.

At UTA's College Park Center you can sit just about anywhere you want to for a Mavericks home basketball game.
