Longhorns Spank the Sooners 9-3, Off a Stellar Night From the Clemens Brothers  By Will Baizer   The Longhorns put away the Sooners tonight to the tune of 9-3 and take this year’s series by takin

Rat bastard ump.

The Clemens boys doing work today!!

This is off topic, I apologize. There's a commercial on the LHN where these people are sitting around

a campfire singing "The Eyes of Texas" while a man with silver hair plays his guitar to the tune. At the

end the Texas Cowboys fire off the cannon. Can anybody tell me, who is the older guy playing the guitar?

I figured it's some known musician, but I don't know who it is and my wife keeps asking me who it is.  

Thanks in advance to whoever can tell me.

Longhorns Spank the Sooners 9-3, Off a Stellar Night From the Clemens Brothers 

By Will Baizer

 

The Longhorns put away the Sooners tonight to the tune of 9-3 and take this year’s series by taking the first two games.

 

However, the game started out less than stellar for the Longhorns. The Sooners came right out of the gate taking advantage of a rocky start for Morgan Cooper. After Morgan loaded the bases, Oklahoma’s star LF Steele Walker knocked a single into left field to score two.

 

It seemed like it was going to be a long day for Morgan Cooper (4-2 with 1.79 ERA). However, after that 4th batter, Morgan Cooper didn’t allow a hit until the top of the 7th inning, retiring 22 batters without a hit. Coach Pierce praised his ace’s turn around after the game by saying, “[Cooper] made a great in game adjustment by really pitching backwards. Going to the curveball early in the count. They’re a really good fastball hitting team, and I thought he did a really good job of mixing up his pitches to get them off the fastball.”

 

Morgan Cooper ended the game allowing 3 ER over 6.2IP and getting 7Ks with 108 pitches.

 

The Longhorns have had trouble giving their arms some back up on the scoreboard. No today.

 

Texas faced the Oklahoma’s Jake Irvin (5-0 with 1.3 ERA), yet they were able to score 2 runs off the Sooners’ ace and force him out of the game after 3⅔ innings.

 

It was a family affair in the Disch as Kody Clemens (2-4 HR and 2B) and Kacy Clemens (2-4 5RBIs and HR) had enormous offensive days for the Longhorns. The brothers together drove in 6 runs and each one of them homered.

But it started when the Longhorns responded to the Sooners’ 2 run top of the 1st with a bit of offense of their own. The game started with Kody Clemens taking Oklahoma’s ace, Jake Irvin (), to a ten pitches. Two outs later Travis Jones (2-3 RBI and 2Bx2) doubled, one of his 2 doubles (his 9th and 10th of the season). Kacy Clemens then went on to drive in Jones to cut the Sooners lead to 1.

 

The Sooner lead didn’t last much longer as Kody Clemens took Jake Irvin to deep left field to tie the game at 2. Funnily enough Kody unintentionally called his home run in the dugout before the at bat.  “It was funny, in the dugout, I was talking to Nolan Kingham, and I was like, ‘If you hit a fly ball over the stands that block the wind, it’s just going to go because the flags are howling.’ Then I hit it, and it felt really good off the bat. I was just hoping it would catch the wind, and it did. I got into the dugout and Nolan was like, ‘You literally just talked about that,’” Kody recalled.

 

 The game stayed tied for one more inning until the bottom of the 5th. Then the flood gates opened.

With 2 outs, the Longhorns got SS David Hamilton (0-2 2Rs) on base with a walk. Then Kody Clemens doubled to put runners on 2nd and 3rd base with Tate Shaw (2-5 2RBIs) up to bat with 2 outs. After a fierce at bat, Shaw hit the ball right at Jake Irvin’s left ankle and it took a fortuitous bounce to the right to allow Shaw to reach 1st and Hamilton to score, giving the Longhorns a 3-2 run.

 

But the Longhorns weren’t done.

 

Travis Jones walked to loaded the bases with 2 outs. The team captain Kacy Clemens stepped up to the plate. Next thing the fans knew, the ball was sailing over the right field wall. People we’re on their feet. Echoes of “O-U Sucks” ringing through the air. The cheering didn’t die down until the inning was over. Kacy replayed the home run after the game, “It actually got in on me a little bit. I didn’t fully get the barrel to it, but I knew I got enough of it. Off the bat I thought, for sure double. When you’re rounding the bases, you’re looking for the ball to come down before the wall. And then it goes over. I was fired up.”

 

At this point Oklahoma started to bring out the bench players, but the Longhorns continued the scoring into the 6th inning.

 

Tate Shaw drove in another run when, with bases loaded, he hit it to the 2nd baseman, who wanted to throw to 1st but the 1st baseman wasn’t there. Travis Jones came up right after and hit into a fielder choice that scored another run.

 

Morgan Cooper’s line will show that he let in 3 runs, but the 3rd came in the top of the 7th when Nick Kennedy walked in a run.

 

Blair Henley then came into the finish out the game over the next two innings to seal the win for the Longhorns.

When asked what Kacy thought about the season so far, he responded, “This team is weird. We know we have the pieces to the puzzle. It’s just a matter of if we come out and put them together.”

 

The Longhorns are staring a Sooner sweeping in the face on Sunday, as Kyle Johnston takes the mound.
