I did not make it out to the Disch today to watch the game between VCU and Texas. I was able to follow it on the radio and Texas made VCU paid for the 5 errors they committed. Freshman Cole Green got his first career start as a Longhorn against VCU Senior Cody Eppley. Cole did a great job of keeping the VCU Rams of balance for 4 innings and Keith Shinaberry came in the 5th and the 6th and gave up 3 of the 4runs that VCU scored. Chance Ruffin another Freshman closed out the 7th, 8th and 9th to get the save. Michael Toress had 5 rbis on the Day and Freshman Kevin Keyes continues his hot hitting as he went 2-3 and Sophomore Brandon Belt finally got it going with a 4-5 day at the plate.
Texas will be looking to close out the series with Kenn Kasparek on the mound. Kenn will be making his first appearance for Texas since he has been sideline since the Summer of ’06.
