ARLINGTON, Tex. - UT Arlington's game against Texas State was suspended because of fog with the score tied at 2 before the start of the 10th inning Friday night at Clay Gould Ballpark.

The game will be resumed at 1 p.m. on Saturday before the start of Game 3.

The postponement stole the attention from a pitcher's duel between Texas State ace Carson Smith and closer Joseph Dvorsky against UT Arlington hurlers Michael Oberto and Adam Westbrook.

Smith lasted 7.0 innings, allowing two runs on six hits. He walked five and struck out eight.

Oberto started for the Mavericks and lasted 3.2 innings, allowing one earned run on five hits with four walks.

Westbrook came in and ended the fourth inning. He allowed a leadoff double and then settled into a groove, retiring 13 consecutive hitters before Clint Vest broke the string with a pinch-hit single in the ninth.

Texas State scored a couple in the third - one on a throwing error and another when Cory Falvey singled home Andrew Stumph.

UT Arlington pushed across its first run in the fourth when Cody Dyvig scored on a two-out wild pitch.

Brian Nephew tied the game in the fifth with a sacrifice fly to center field that scored Nick Orr.

The game started at 8:19 p.m. after a rain delay of 1 hour, 49 minutes. It was suspended exactly at the 3-hour mark.

After Game 2 is completed, UT Arlington and Texas State wrap up their three-game series Saturday at Clay Gould Ballpark. The suspended game is set to resume at 1 p.m. with a ceremony to celebrate Senior Day scheduled beforehand.
