TYLER - The UT Tyler baseball and softball teams both opened up big postseason tournaments on Friday night.

The Patriots baseball team kicked off the ASC Championship series as they played ETBU. This was a great game and went late into the night before UT Tyler won on a walk-off wild pitch in the 13th inning, beating ETBU 9-8.

Game 2 (and, if needed, game 3) will be on Saturday afternoon.

The UT Tyler softball team opened up their regional tournament as they took on La Verne. And that game was all Patriots as they beat the Leopards 9-0.

UT Tyler will be back in action on Saturday when they play Texas Lutheran at 2 PM, then again at 5 PM.
