The top-seeded Texas Longhorns opened Big 12 Baseball Tournament play against the No. 8 seed Kansas Jayhawks on Wednesday with a 6-3 loss at Globe Life Field in Arlington. 

Starting pitcher Lucas Gordon pitched a full five innings and gave up seven hits and two runs which came in the third inning.  Jack O'Dowd's home run in the bottom of the frame cut the Jayhawk lead to 2-1 and held until Gordon was replaced by Travis Stehly.  Stehly pitched a 1-2-3 inning in the Top 6th and the Longhorns tied it up in their at-bat, with Dylan Campbell scoring on a single up the middle by Porter Brown.  Campbell's hit extended his hitting-streak to 34 games, which is just one short of the Big 12 record.

With two outs in the Top 7th, Stehly loaded the bases after intentionally walking Kodey Shojinaga.  Jansen Reeder then emptied the bases with a grand slam over the right-center field fence to give the Jayhawks a 6-2 lead.

The Longhorns added one more run on Jack O'Dowd's two-out homer in the 9th (his second of the day), before Rylan Galvan struck out to end the game.

Travis Stehly took the loss on the day for Texas and Collin Baumgartner improved to 6-1 with the win for the Jayhawks.

Texas will head to an elimination game tomorrow morning at 9:00 am against the Kansas State Wildcats.  The Wildcats were run-ruled by TCU 16-3 in the tournament's first game on Wednesday.

Lebarron Johnson Jr. will get the start for the Longhorns on Thursday.
