Tarleton took three of four in Stephenville in a non-conference series against Eastern New Mexico last weekend. Jake Spence enjoyed a career weekend at the dish as he led Tarleton to three wins in four games against Eastern New Mexico and was named the LSC Hitter of the Week. The Greeley, Colorado native hit .471 in four games with three home runs and nine RBI while racking up a team-high 20 total bases. His biggest blast of the weekend started Tarleton’s rally in the series finale that Jacob Walker walked off in the 10th inning.

Tarleton enters the weekend with a flawless 13-0 record against UT Permian Basin since the inaugural meeting in 2011. The Texans are 6-0 all-time in Odessa, including a four-game sweep in Odessa last season.

Tarleton will be back home next weekend for a three-game series against Cameron to officially get the Lone Star Conference season under way. The Texans and Aggies will take the field for the first game on Friday at 3 p.m. at the Cecil Ballow Complex.
