FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Cody Jones hit a leadoff home run and TCU cruised to a 10-0 victory over Sacred Heart in the opening round of the Fort Worth Regional on Friday night.

Jones scored twice and was one of seven players who drove in at least a run for TCU (44-11). The Horned Frogs scored three runs in the third, clearing the bases after three straight walks. Two two-out singles added two more runs for TCU in the fifth for a 6-0 lead.

Mitchell Traver (8-2) allowed four hits and struck out seven in seven innings, Derek Odell finished with three RBIs and Jeremie Fagnan scored three runs for TCU.

James Cooksey (7-3) gave up four runs in four innings for the Pioneers (23-31-1), who combined to walk 10.

TCU will take on North Carolina State in the winners' bracket Saturday, while Sacred Heart will play Stony Brook in an elimination game.
