  1. ***New Orleans vs Texas Series Thread***

    He’s got a bullpen Ps mentality, and pitches far better coming out of the pen. I would rather see him there but the challenge is that there are not many options to replace him as a starter.

    10-2 Texas. Apologies, I was on a plane during the game, so no coverage. Jameson is covering this weekend's series. If you're ever looking for scores or recaps, you can go to the UT website, http://texassports.com/schedule.aspx?path=baseball From TexasSports.com No. 21 Baseball rolls to 10-2 win over Texas Southern in Sugar Land Andy McGuire homered and Michael McCann went 3-for-3 in the Texas win. Box Score SUGAR LAND, Texas—On Wednesday night in Sugar Land, No. 21 Texas Baseball (26-14) pounded out 11 hits en route to a 10-2 win over Texas Southern (16-22) at Constellation Field, home of the Sugar Land Skeeters. The Longhorns got the scoring started in the bottom of the first when Tate Shaw was hit with a pitch and came around to score on a throwing error. After the sides exchanged zeroes in the second and third, Texas plated a pair of runs in the fourth with a couple of two-out knocks. Ryan Reynolds stroked a two-out double before Duke Ellis, who finished 2-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored, tripled him home to make it 2-0 in favor of the Longhorns. Ellis then came around to score on a wild pitch to make it 3-0 after four complete. In the fifth, Texas continued to tack on. Masen Hibbeler and Kody Clemens opened the inning with back-to-back singles and with one out, David Hamilton lifted a sac fly to center to push the Texas lead to 4-0. With two outs in the inning, left fielder Andy McGuire blasted his second career home run over the left field wall to put Texas out in front, 6-0, after five. The Tigers plated two in the top of the sixth but a Shaw sacrifice fly got one back to make it 7-2. In the bottom of the seventh, David Hamilton, who stole his 22nd and 23rd bases of the season in the game, dropped a bunt single before a McGuire walk put runners on the corners. Hamilton then scored on a throwing error on a failed pickoff attempt to push it to 8-2. After an Ellis walk and the first career hit for George Pappas, a wild pitch stretched the lead to 9-2. With the bases loaded, Clemens drew a walk to force in a run to close out the scoring at 10-2. On the mound for Texas, Kamron Fields tossed two scoreless frames before Nico O'Donnell (3-2) added two of his own. After a scoreless inning each from Josh Sawyer and Matthew Whelan, McGuire finished things off on the mound with a hitless ninth. Michael McCann finished with a career-high-tying three hits on the night while Zach Zubia extended his reached base safely streak to 39 games with a walk. The triple was the first of Ellis' career. The Longhorns return to action on Friday night at 7 p.m. with the first of three games against visiting New Orleans.
  3. When I saw the lineup last night, I texted Jameson about ten minutes before first pitch and just said, “Jake all 9 positions tonight.” Turns out we were both thinking the same thing. More importantly, so was Coach Pierce. What a a fantastic story. Jake was originally a walk-on guy at Texas, who earned spot duty here and there. He’s the kind of kid that most coaches would say, “If I had 9 of him, I’d put them out there, take my chances and win far more than I’d lose.” An extremely intelligent young man, Jake is carrying a 3.95 as a senior Petroleum Engineer major. He seemingly transfers those book smarts to the diamond and plays a very savvy style of baseball. He does whatever is asked and produces, whether it’s on defense or at the plate. Congrats to Jake. Well-deserved.
  4. 5-4 would put Texas with 16 wins, which “should” be enough to win the Big12.
  5. Very pleased with the results this weekend. Horns in the Top 25 at #21 RPI 23 SOS 30
