The fourth ranked Texas Longhorns (21-5) opened a 10-game homestand with a 14-4 win over Texas A&M Corpus Christi on Tuesday evening.  Ivan Melendez went 4-for-5 on the night and had 3 RBI's, pacing Texas to an eventual blowout of the Islanders.  Melendez hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the 2nd Inning giving Texas a 2-1 lead - a lead they would not relinquish for the remainder of the game.

Leading 4-2 in the fifth, Cam Williams hit a two-run home run to extend the Texas lead to 6-2. The Islanders would score two in the sixth but the Longhorns added three runs in the seventh inning to hold a 9-4 advantage heading into the eighth.

Taking advantage of back-to-back walks to DJ Petrinski and Cam Williams, an Ivan Melendez single loaded the bases.  Douglas Hodo and Trey Faltine each singled after that, with Hodo collecting an RBI and Faltine with two.  Texas led 12-4 at that point, but the Longhorns weren't done.

A Dylan Campbell walk loaded the bases again and Mitchell Daly singled to left field to score two more runs making the score 14-4.

RHP Drew Shifflet closed the game out, giving up one hit and striking out one.

The Longhorns will next host Stephen F. Austin for a mid-week matchup on Wednesday. First pitch will take place at 6:30 PM and will be televised on Longhorn Network.
