San Marcos - Casey Kalenkoskey hit two home runs as Texas State rolled up 17 hits in an 8-1 victory over Sam Houston and a Southland Conference series sweep Sunday afternoon.

Chris Andreas went 2-for-4 on a day when the Bearkats were limited to four hits. Braeden Riley singled and Mark Hudson tripled to account for the Kats other two hits. Hudson scored on a sacrifice fly by Daniel Nottebart that gave Sam Houston a 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning.

Texas State took the lead back quickly, totaling five runs in the bottom of the third, a single run in the sixth and two more in the eighth inning.

The Bobcats, now 6-0 in Southland Conference and 15-4 overall, are tied for first place in the league race.
