The Horned Frogs baseball season came to an end Saturday night after losing to Florida 3-0. Florida starter Alex Faedo, the 18th overall pick in the MLB Draft, shut out the Frogs for the second time in a week to propel the Florida Gators to the championship series against LSU. The Horned Frogs had few chances against Faedo who limited the Frogs to just seven baserunners, with none advancing past second base on the night. The 50 wins are tied for third most in TCU Baseball history.

The young TCU bullpen didn't allow a run in the entire College World Series, throwing 18.1 innings of scoreless relief. Seven different Horned Frogs pitched in relief during the College World Series.

Sean Wymer (6.1)

Charles King (3.1)

Cal Coughlin (2.2)

Durbin Feltman (2.0)

Nick Lodolo (1.0)

Dalton Brown (1.0)

Trey Morris (1.0)

Haylen Green (1.0)

King and Wymer could find themselves in the rotation next season replacing seniors Brian Howard and Mitchell Traver.

The Horned Frogs say goodbye to eight seniors total and likely two juniors (Wade, Skoug) who were drafted in the MLB Draft last week. The Horned Frogs will have to replace two starting pitchers (Howard, Traver), two outfielders (Brown, Wade), third base (Barzilli), shortstop (Merrill), second base (Warner) and catcher (Skoug).

The Horned Frogs will return left fielder Josh Watson, 1st Baseman/outfielder Connor Wanhanen, 1st baseman Luken Baker, designated hitter/catcher Zach Humphreys and utilityman Michael Landestoy and the entire bullpen.

If Evan Skoug leaves for Frogs for professional baseball, he will leave with the fourth highest total of home runs in a season (20) and RBI's (71) and is tied for fourth all-time in home runs (38) and RBI's (168).
