Top Performance #5: Belicek Strikes Out 12 in Two-Hit Shutout vs. Lamar

The Texas A&M - Corpus Christi baseball team faced off against Lamar in a doubleheader series on May 10. Following a series sweep on the road against Abilene Christian, the Islanders were looking to continue their success in the final three home games of the season and stay ahead of Sam Houston State for first place in the league.

Game one featured a sixth inning three-run rally by the Islanders that lifted them past the Cardinals to a 5-2 victory. In game two, it was Trevor Belicek, who dominated the mound to earn the fifth top performance of the season.

The Uvalde, Texas native pitched nine shutout innings, featuring perfect 1-2-3 innings in the first five, and only allowing two hits and two walks with a career-high 12 strikeouts overall. The Islanders went on to win, 2-1, following a walk-off single by Dawson Yates in the 10th, to sweep the doubleheader.

The junior was named Southland Conference Pitcher of the Week and collected NCAA recognition as one of the Top Performers in Week 13 for his performance against Lamar. Following his career-high 12 strikeouts, Belicek ranked second in the Southland in league games in the category with 52, just one back of first place.
