COLLEGE STATION, TX - The lights weren't too bright for Chance Hroch.

The senior righty struck out a season-high nine in six innings of work Friday night inside Blue Bell Park, coming one shy of matching his career best in NM State's 8-3 loss to #20 Texas A&M (12-3).

NMSU Men's Basketball Routs Cal Baptist 83-50, Finish WAC Regular Season Undefeated

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Back in the early 1970s, country musician Jerry Reed put pen to paper and came up with a ditty entitled, When You're Hot, You're Hot. The hit single served as Reed's account of a dice game (and the events that transpired as a result of it) in a back alley with two of his closest friends - a game in which Reed couldn't stop rollin' sevens and winning.

Incredulous at the luck of Reed, his pals simply threw up their hands and said, "when you're hot, you're hot," resigning themselves to the fact that it just wasn't their day.   Continue Reading This Post >>
