  1. Heading into the Big 12 tournament, Texas was riding high as the Big 12 regular season champions and looked to be in very strong position to host a regional. The momentum was halted though after an 0-2 showing in Oklahoma City, leaving Longhorn fans a little nervous heading into Sunday night, when the host sites are announced. The Texas bats went quiet in losses to Kansas and Oklahoma, combining to score 3 runs and only mustering 10 hits. Nolan Kingham received the start on the mound on Thursday morning and fought his way through 5 1/3 innings, allowing 3 runs on 8 hits and striking out 1
  2. The wait is over. The NCAA regional hosts were announced Sunday night, and the Longhorns heard their name called among the 16 teams who will host the regional round of the NCAA Tournament. Texas finished the regular season with 37-20 record and were the regular season champions of the Big 12. Despite an 0-2 performance during the conference tournament, the Longhorns will begin postseason play in Austin. The last time Texas hosted a regional was 2011, when the Longhorns won the regional and eventually advanced to the College World Series. The NCAA will announce the remainder of t

  4. The Big 12 Conference announced its end of the season awards and All-Conference teams Tuesday morning, and it is no surprise Texas had multiple players recognized. Texas 2B Kody Clemens took home Big 12 Conference Player of the Year and David Pierce was named Big 12 Coach of the Year. Clemens, who was recently named a Golden Spikes Award Semi-Finalist, finished the regular season hitting .344 with 19 home runs and 61 RBI's. Pierce guided the Longhorns to their first Big 12 Title since 2011. 3 Longhorns received First Team All-Big Honors: 2B Kody Clemens, OF Duke Ellis and DH Zach Zub
  5. The Big 12 Tournament bracket has been set. Texas will enter the tournament as the number #1 seed and will face #8 seed Kansas on Wednesday at approximately 12:30 PM. The tournament is split up into two 4-team double elimination brackets, with the Sunday’s Championship game being a one game winner-take-all.
  6. No. 17 Texas (34-18) vs. TCU May 17-19, 2018 Where: UFCU Disch-Falk Field Time: Thursday @ 6:30 pm CT; Friday @ 6:30 pm CT; Saturday @ 2:30 p.m. TV: Thursday on FS1; Friday and Saturday on Longhorn Network Radio: 104.9 The Horn, AM 1260 All-time series: Texas leads, 224-72-2 PROBABLE STARTING PITCHERS THURSDAY—TCU LHP Nick Lodolo (6-3, 4.48) vs. Texas RHP Nolan Kingham (6-2, 4.50) FRIDAY—TCU RHP Jake Eissler (5-1, 3.60) vs. Texas RHP Chase Shugart (4-3, 5.09) SATURDAY—TCU TBA vs. Texas RHP Blair Henley (5-6, 3.60) GAME NOTES
  7. Throughout the 2018 season, David Pierce preached process over results. In his 2nd year at Texas, the head coach wanted to see hitters have quality at-bats and his pitchers compete on the mound. The results were not always there. The Longhorns struggled at times, dropping series to LSU, Stanford, Kansas State and West Virginia in addition to a 2 game midweek sweep at Arkansas. The bullpen showed cracks and young hitters went through growing pains. Texas never wavered though. Despite going 9-9 through the first 18 games of the season, Pierce continued to stay the course and believed in a t
  8. It is only fitting that a 2-run walk-off home run by Kody Clemens has given Texas a chance to win a Big 12 regular season title. The junior delivered the two big blows for the Longhorns, hitting the game tying 2-run home run in the 5th before smacking a 2-run walk-off home run in the bottom of the 9th. It was the 3rd walk-off home run at UFCU Disch-Falk Field this season. The 5-3 win combined with an Oklahoma State loss pulls the Longhorns even with the Cowboys in the Big 12 standings, with Texas owning the tiebreaker. A win tomorrow with an OSU loss would make Texas outright Big 12 Champs. If
  9. After Texas’ 3-2 series opening win over TCU, starting pitcher Nolan Kingham told David Pierce, “Arlight Coach, now I’m back”. The junior right-hander turned in perhaps his best performance of the season since his complete game in the season opener against Louisiana Lafayette. Kingham went the distance against the Horned Frogs, throwing 116 pitches while allowing 2 runs on 6 hits, striking out 6 and walking 1. Let’s take a look at some thoughts and takeaways from a win that now has Texas only 1 game back of first-place Oklahoma State. Masen Hibbeler told reporters after the game

  11. Texas baseball accomplished something no other team has done this season: win a series in Lubbock. The Longhorns picked up what was perhaps the biggest win of the season with a 7-5 victory over 9th ranked Texas Tech on Sunday, clinching the series win over the Red Raiders. As has become a theme this season, the Texas bats rallied in the late innings to overcome a 4-3 deficit, getting big home runs from Kody Clemens and Zach Zubia. Let’s take a look at some thoughts and takeaways from a series victory that likely keeps the Longhorns hopes of hosting a regional alive: Pitcher of the Weekend

  13. Last week, it was announced that Roger Clemens and his wife, Debbie, had donated $1 million to assist with the funding for a new indoor training facility for Texas baseball. In a statement released by the University, Athletics Director Chris Del Conte and head coach David Pierce expressed their appreciation for the gift and what it meant for the future of the baseball program. “The Clemens family absolutely bleeds orange,” Del Conte said in the statement. “This gift truly underscores their love for Texas. Their generosity will help our baseball program continue to grow and prosper for yea

  15. Last week, David Pierce said he had never had a bad win after Texas won a 9-4 game over Houston. The same could be said for Tuesday’s victory over Texas State, where the Longhorns overcame poor pitching and shaky defense to rally from a 10-6 deficit and win 11-10 on a walk-off grand slam from David Hamilton. It wasn’t pretty, and it could have a devastating loss for a team who still has an outside shot of hosting a regional, but the end result was memorable night for Hamilton and the 31st win of the season for the Longhorns. Kamron Fields received the start on the mound and struggled h
  16. David Pierce has been honest with the fact he isn’t afraid to talk about the big picture with his team. The Longhorns currently sit at 29-15 overall and sit one game back of first-place in the Big 12 standings with a record of 11-4. A RPI of 30 is likely to improve over the course of the final 3 weeks of the season. As it currently stands, Texas has positioned themselves to make a run at a conference title and potentially host a regional. “The more information you have, you understand the landscape of college baseball,” Pierce explained. “You understand how it works. Then you put that asi

  18. VIA UT Release AUSTIN, Texas—On a night when runs came in bunches, No. 19 Texas Baseball (29-15) secured a 9-4 win over visiting Houston (25-16) on Tuesday night at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. Though the Longhorns managed just four hits in the ballgame, they took advantage of four walks, four hit by pitches, and one costly Houston error in the third and fourth frames. Down 3-0 after two innings, catcher DJ Petrinsky got things started in the home half of the third with a base hit up the middle. Duke Ellis, who finished with a pair of hits on the night, then followed wit

  21. Earlier in the season, Jake McKenzie joked with head coach David Pierce about the fact that the only position the utility player had yet in a game was catcher. McKenzie not only checked the final position off his list Tuesday, but checked off all 9 positions in the same game as the Longhorns routed UT-Rio Grande Valley in 7 innings, 13-2. In a game that included quite a few outstanding performance, McKenzie’s performance rises above the rest. The senior started the game at catcher before rotating between each infield position in innings 2-5. In the 6th and with the run-rule possibly comin

  23. Entering the weekend, the road had not been kind to Texas. The Longhorns entered the series against 16th ranked Oklahoma with a 4-7 record away from UFCU Disch-Falk Field. David Pierce spoke earlier in the week about trying to establish a routine and get his players in a rhythm when they play away from home. The results were encouraging, as Texas used 2 come from behind victories to take a road series over the Sooners. In game 1, Texas trailed 4-1, 5-2 and 6-3 before ultimately scoring 4 runs in the final 2 innings to take the opener, 7-6. Matteo Bocchi received the win and Andy McGuire l
