No. 11 TCU was eliminated from the NCAA tournament by bottom-seed Oral Roberts after the Golden Eagles stunned the Horned Frogs with an 8-4 win Sunday in the Fort Worth Regional.
Oral Roberts (38-21) advances to play No. 2 seed Dallas Baptist at 7 p.m. Sunday night. If DBU wins, it moves on to play in its first Super Regional at either Rice or Baylor.
TCU, a College World Series participant in 2010, struggled all season with injuries to its pitching staff. Kyle Winkler, who has missed two starts in the last three weeks, started Sunday but left with two outs in the first inning after developing elbow soreness.
Chris Elder's grand slam on a 1-2 pitch in the sixth inning proved to be the back-breaker for the Frogs, who had pulled to within 4-3 before the homer to right field off left-handed reliever Teddy Nowell.
