DALLAS (AP) - Heart inflammation killed a former Texas Tech first baseman who collapsed and died last month just after crossing the finish line of the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in Dallas.

The medical examiner's office ruled Wednesday that Mark Austry died of myocarditis, an inflammation of a heart wall that is caused by a viral infection.

Austry collapsed and died after finishing the 13.1-mile run benefiting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

The 32-year-old former Red Raiders athlete from Lantana, Texas, lettered at Texas Tech from 1998 to 2000 after transferring from Coastal Carolina.
