Former Carroll Dragon baseball standouts and teammates John Curtiss and Tyler Alexander are pitching at the College World Series in Omaha.

Curtiss, a redshirt sophomore, pitched in relief of the University of Texas' 3-1 loss to UC Irvine last weekend. He went 1.2 innings and allowed four hits and one earned run. Curtiss also had three strikeouts and is the first-team Captain One Academic All-American this year, leading the Longhorns with nine saves. 

Curtiss was a recent sixth-round draft pick in Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft. 

Alexander is expected to be Texas Christian University's third starter in Omaha. TCU opened the series with a dramatic 2-3 victory last weekend against Texas Tech. 

Alexander is a freshman All-American selection, leading the Frogs with 10 victories this season.

Alexander received various awards and recognitions during his time at Carroll, including being named District 4-5A Pitcher of the Year and Co-Most Valuable player. He was also selected to play in the Texas High School Coaches Association All-Star game.
