Texas State sports fans, senior second baseman Tyler Sibley is rewriting the school’s record book so much, it should probably be named after him.
Friday night in the first game of the three-game set with Central Arkansas, Sibley eclipsed the previous career doubles mark held by former standout Paul Goldschmidt with a seventh-inning two-bagger. Sibley later scored, extending his own career record for runs.
In the second game of the series, Sibley collected a pair of hits. Sibley’s first-inning double broke former outfielder Bret Atwood‘s career hits mark, which was set in 2011. Now, Sibley has 261 hits, compared to Atwood’s 259.
Texas State will go for the sweep of the Bears on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m.
