Texas-Tyler's David Ring hit for the cycle and batted in four
runs as the Patriots cruised to a 14-1 victory over Castleton State
in non-conference action on Tuesday night at Irwin Field. Ring, a
junior outfielder, became only the second Patriot to hit for the
cycle after Phil Grau in 2005. The win brings no. 22 Texas Tyler's
record to 8-0 on the season.
With Texas-Tyler putting up runs in bunches most of the attention on the night went to Ring and his quest for the cycle. After his triple in the first inning, Ring completed the cycle with a sharp line drive double into the left field corner. Ring's single came in the fourth inning and he homered in the fifth.

It was the most strikeouts for a Pacific pitcher since Adam Azril struck out 13 against Lewis & Clark on Mar. 29, 2005.
