Season opener today and our own Harrison Weir is going to be making the game call. I will be following along.

I'm looking forward to seeing what this team can do this weekend. Rice is banged up, without four key players, down 3 Ps and an infielder.

I'll pop in as I can to discuss things.

Hook Em and be nice to Harrison!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

RECAP by Will Baizer:

 

Texas dropped the first game of the four game series 2-3. Post game Pierce preached having a short memory, as the Longhorns have a double header the next day.

 

It was a hard fought pitcher’s duel through most of the first 6 innings. Morgan Cooper was on fire through the first 5 innings Cooper threw 67 pitches (46 strikes) and recorded 6 K’s. But Texas couldn’t help out their pitcher as they struggled with Rice’s veteran Dane Myers – who recorded his longest outing of his career with 90 pitches (50 strikes and 3 K’s). After that Cooper threw 20 more pitches (12 strikes) before he was relieved by Nolan Kingham.

 

Texas was leading 1-0 in the 6th inning off a sacrifice fly from Kacy Clemens, but Morgan cracked a bit and let up a two run double fly over the head of a diving Travis Jones in left field. Texas responded with a run of their own off a Kody Clemens bomb to right field.

 

After the 6th Kingham came in. He started off on fire hitting 97mph and retiring the first 7 batters he faced. But the game slipped through his fingers as he allowed one run off of one hit. Notch an assist on that run off a passed ball from Michael Cantu and a questionable call by the home plate umpire to allow the run to cross when the ball had hit the Rice batter DiCaprio on the foot in the batter’s box. Once it hit DiCaprio’s foot (which was blatant), it should’ve been a foul ball and DiCaprio back in the box with a 2-2 count. Instead Rice won the game off that run.

 

Texas couldn’t get another run after that despite having runners in scoring position. In fact, Texas had a hard time with RISP. The Longhorns stranded 5 runners in this game, one on 3rd and two on 2nd. Freshman Ryan Reynolds accounted for 3 of those stranded runners and the other two were given to the other Freshman, Austin Todd.

 

Rice had their struggles at the plate too. They just couldn’t put metal to ball as they got 8 out of their 8 strike outs swinging at air. And the Texas pitchers came right at the Rice batters as well. Morgan Cooper recorded 17-24 first pitch strikes and Nolan Kingham record 8-10 first pitch strikes.

 

 

Stars of the game: Freshman David Hamilton and Sophomore Kody Clemens

 

Hamilton who made two spectacular defensive plays consisting of one back handed grab and long toss to first for an out and another bullet to first on another long throw to first.

David Pierce had high remarks for Hamilton, "He was outstanding... Not just okay. He was excellent tonight... He's a kid who's going to have some range that other don't."

 

Kody had a hot night at the plate notching the Horns’ second run off the homerun and tallying a single. Kody was very excited about the new strategy at the plate by the new staff stating, "I loved it! We just have a better opportunity to swing the bat."

Harrison doing play by play is just like hitting a baseball... you just gotta relax and concentrate and ignore the screwballs.

Quick notes
Ps Otto, Amador and Parthasarathy are said to be out this weekend. I have heard that Parthasarathy "may" get an inning or two at some point, but the staff is exercising caution and not rushing them back.
