Opening Statement: “Extremely disappointing, but that’s been our Friday several times this year. It’s disappointing in the result, but the effort was there, and the will to win was there and I thought both teams played hard, played well. The separation was as a result of two strike hitting and two out hitting and...

If you asked Augie Garrido what the Longhorns need to do to win the Dallas Regional, he’d offer insight about scoring more runs than the other team.

Opening Statement: "It's nice to be the last speaker four times in a row. Obviously, the name of the game has always been pitching and that certainly was the name of the game for our team. All of the four starters did an excellent job of getting their outs on time, pitching to contact, pitching without fear, showi...

Opening Statement: "I don't know if we've done it before, but we've won three complete games in a row. That was new, but they picked the right time for it. If there's a time to let the champion that's inside of you out, it was now. The three pitchers certainly did their part from that point of view. It puts us in...

Opening Statement: "Our game was driven by Parker French from the defensive side, and then some good defense behind him. We made one mistake with a passed ball that led to a run. Besides that, we played real well defensively. Zane made a good catch look easy in center field that would have been runs had he not cau...

GAME 2: Baylor 7 – Texas 1 A lack of timely hitting and making productive outs, issues that have plagued the team throughout the season, reared their heads in Game 2, contributing to a 7-1 loss by Texas.

His overall thoughts on the game: “We handled the plays defensively in a timely fashion and got our outs. We got good, steady pitching from the fifth on. It's important to get [Kirby] Bellow out there. Our freshman shortstop [Joe Baker] did an outstanding job both offensively and defensively. I thought the team fu...

On rebounding after his struggle in the first inning: “I came into the dugout and [Associate Head Coach] Skip [Johnson] and I talked about a little mechanical change. Once I changed that, everything went well and smooth from there.” On if Sunday’s win and this game can be a turning point: “It's definitely a turni...

On whether this team can earn a regional berth: “My concerns are about the attitude of the team and so far even though they haven't performed during these difficult times to their ability level, or they have tried too hard which makes it look like they aren't trying to perform. It's still about getting to that tea...

On the team’s approach: “We don't look at the standings. The most important game is the next one. We just have to keep grinding and keep trying to win ball games. I think if we do that, everything will take care of itself. We can't worry about wins or losses. We just have to worry about the next game.” On today’s...

On his diagnosis of the game: “The runs [our defense] put them in position to get to tie the score were a result of not playing fundamentally sound baseball. The lack of runs [on offense] came from the lack of extended rallies, and [lack of] advancing runners into scoring position when we had the lead-off hitter o...
