Texas Drops the Pitcher Duel and First Conference Game to Texas Tech 1-2

By Will Baizer

 

It was a good old fashion pitchers’ duel in the first of three vs Texas Tech. The match up was Texas’ Nolan Kingham (2-2, 0.95 ERA) vs Texas Tech’s Davis Martin (3-1, 3.10 ERA) and both pitchers only gave up one run through 6 complete innings.

 

Both of those runs came off solo shots by the 9-hole hitters for each team. Texas Tech’s 9-hole hitter, Michael Davis (1-3 w/1 HR), took Kingham yard, sending his ball over the left center field fence.

Texas’ 9-hole hitter, Tate Shaw (1-1 w/1 HR), responded with his very own deep shot over the right field wall, just getting over the glove of a leaping right fielder.

 

However, you know what they say, “If the pitcher needs to throw a shut out then you’re going to lose the game.” Well, that statement doesn’t ring any truer when Kingham takes the mound. It just seems like whenever Kingham gives up a run, the offense cannot get enough firepower to put runs on the board for him. It may seem that way because it has been so far. Two wins with two shut outs. Two loses two games giving up a run. Nolan Kingham pitched 7 complete innings, had 3Ks on 93 pitches, and only allowed 2 earned runs. His ERA still sits at sub 1 despite having 28.1 innings pitched. In fact, he’s only given up 3 earned runs (4 total) this entire year during his 5 appearances.

 

On the other side, Davis Martin had something to prove after Texas took him to town last year during his freshman season when he gave up 5 runs over six innings in his longest career game (103 pitches). This year he took it to the Longhorns surrendering only 1 run off only 2 hits over 6⅓ innings tallying 6Ks.

 

Nolan Kingham gave up just one more run in the 7th inning when Texas Tech put on a hit and run and Mike Berglund (2-4 w/1 RBI) knocked a double into the right field corner. That was enough for the Texas Tech Red Raiders to take the first game in Austin 2-1.

 

Game 2 of the series will begin at 6:30PM and the starting pitcher will be Morgan Cooper

Also, Pierce spoke a little this week about the Gurwitz injurie.  Gurwitz will be out for probably 3 weeks after reaggravating his hamstring on Tuesday. 

There has been no real update on Mathis after he left the A&M game late.  He took a hard spill tracking down a foul ball.  In the replays it appeared that he stumbled awkwardly before sliding into the RF side fence.

I have no inside info but I would be worried about Mathis' anterior cruciate ligament, just from the way he fell and was walking on it later. Hope I am wrong.

It just looked like the knee buckled a bit before he actually fell.

There's been no mention of it being a knee, which IMO, is a good thing.

Someone please tell me again why McCann isn't catching tonight. A night that runs will be at a premium.

Likely a defensive move by Pierce.  Coach has shown no predictability for the rotation at C so far.

Tate Shaw is getting the start today.

 

Patrick Mathis is day-to-day and Zane Gurwitz will most likely be out for a few weeks.

 

Don't expect to see them in this series.

Bottom 1st:

 

Davis Martin starting for Tech

 

1st Longhorn up is Travis Jones

On a full count, Jones thinks he gets ball 4, but the ump let's him know it's not.

I guess we got a big strike zone?

1 out

 

2nd Longhorn up is David Hamilton up

Flies it deep to left center

2 outs.

 

3rd Longhorn up is Kacy Clemens

He watches ball 4 go by.

That's just Davis Martin's 3rd walk of the year.

2 outs. 1 on.

 

4th up is Austin Todd

He flies out to RF.

 

End of inning.

16 pitches.

 

Still 0-0
