  4. Photo: Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports Four teams remain in Omaha.... Texas is one of them. With less than 24 hours of rest in between, the Longhorns are back on the diamond on Friday night. Texas knocked Virginia out of the College World Series in the early hours on Friday morning with a 6-2 win, earning a rematch against Mississippi State later that same day. The Bulldogs are undefeated in Omaha and notched their first win in the CWS by defeating Texas 2-1 in the opener for both schools. Since then Mississippi State has played just one more game, against Virginia. The Bulldogs erased a four-run deficit in the late innings to defeat the Cavaliers 6-5 on Tuesday. Mississippi State has the advantage of a 3-day rest, while the Longhorns have a bit of momentum headed into Friday's game with a 2-game win streak. Since putting up just one run in the opener against the Bulldogs, the Texas bats have come alive and scored 14 runs in the last two games.

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.

Starter Pete Hansen was pulled and replaced with Cole Quintanilla, who was able to get the Longhorns out of the inning without further damage. Melendez delivered again in the eighth with an RBI single which put Texas back in front 3-2. Freshman Aaron Nixon pitched the bottom of the eighth and was able to force a double play to end the inning and preserve the Longhorns' 3-2 lead. Texas loaded the bases in the top of the ninth inning, and the bases were soon cleared thanks to Zack Zubia's three-run double to left-center field. At that point Texas led Virginia 6-2.
