Texas Baseball ended its season with a 4-3 loss to the Mississippi State Bulldogs at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha on Saturday night.  The Longhorns have consistently responded to having their backs against the wall in the College World Series, but fell just short against the Bulldogs.

Cam Williams started the scoring with a two-run shot in the second inning, bringing in Ivan Melendez who walked in his at-bat.  

Mississippi State added a run in the third thanks to a leadoff double and a two-out RBI single. 

Douglas Hodo's double to start the fifth followed by Mike Antico's two-out double made the score 3-1 at that point.  But the Bulldogs added the run right back in the bottom of the inning on a groundball double play.

After five innings Texas led Mississippi State 3-2.

Tristan Stevens gave up a run before getting into a bases loaded, no-outs situation in the bottom of the sixth. Stevens was replaced by Cole Quintanilla, who navigated the inning and escaped with the Bulldogs scoring no more runs to keep the score tied at 3-3.

Mississippi State walked it off in the ninth with an RBI single to left field of Quintanilla.

The Longhorns end an impressive season with a 50-17 overall record and one game short of the College World Series Finals.
