Coming off its first Big 12 series loss since last season, TCU doesn’t have to think about conference games for a while. But another familiar foe awaits.
The Horned Frogs (18-5) play their next five contests out of league, starting with Tuesday night’s game at UT Arlington, continuing with a weekend series at Wichita State and then finishing with another game against UT Arlington.
It’s part of a stretch of seven consecutive road games, which began last weekend with a 1-2 showing at Texas. TCU won the finale 9-5 on Sunday, avoiding a sweep. TCU last lost a Big 12 series on April 10-12, 2015, at Kansas State.
TCU and UT Arlington play the second of three games this season on Tuesday. TCU won 5-1 three weeks ago in Fort Worth, its eighth win in the last 11 meetings. The teams play again next week.

“Today shows the resiliency of our team,” coach Jim Schlossnagle said after Sunday’s win, which included three-hit outings from Luken Baker and Elliott Barzilli and Ryan Burnett’s victory in relief. “Burnett pitched well enough to slow them down a bit. Obviously we swung the bats better today.”
