2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament, TCU Vs. Dayton Final Score: Horned Frogs Offense Breaks Out, Defeats Flyers 28-12

TCU used an impressive offensive showing to avoid being eliminated as they thoroughly defeated Dayton 28-12. The 28 runs is the most so far in the NCAA Tournament. TCU's offense really came alive over the final four innings where they scored seven runs in the sixth, six in the seventh and then nine runs in the ninth inning.

Prior to that offensive outburst effort the game was actually tied at four runs apiece as TCU scored four runs in the second inning and and Dayton matched that in the third inning. Dayton also led 9-6 heading into the sixth inning after scoring another four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning.

TCU finally found some pitching when Justin Scharf and Nick Frey combined for 3.1 innings of shutout baseball, and during that pitching effort TCU put up 13 runs to secure the win.

A few key players for TCU's offense in the win came from Brance Rivera who went 1-for-2 but he had six RBI, scored four runs and his only hit was a home run. Another was Jerrick Suiter who went 5-for-6, scored three runs and had three RBI.
