FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Just a bit inside.

TCU and Baylor pitchers combined for an NCAA single-game record by hitting 13 batters with pitches Tuesday night.

Horned Frogs pitchers matched the record 10 by one team in their 9-4 victory. Three TCU batters were also hit by pitches.

There were more batters hit by pitches than hits (12). There were also a combined 11 walks in the game that took 3 hours, 53 minutes to play.

Baylor leadoff batter Nathan Orf was hit by three different pitchers. TCU starter Brandon Finnegan threw 4 2-3 innings of no-hit ball, but hit six batters.

The previous record of 12 combined hit batters had been done twice, by South Florida and UCF in 2008 and Nevada and New Mexico State in 1997.
