  • 4th ranked Texas beat Texas State 2-0 in Austin. It took until the sixth for Texas to score a run, which has more to do with their trouble on offense than the Texas State pitching staff. Not to take anything away from the Bobcats, because they played a great game defensively, highlighted by a 3rd to 1st double play on a bunt attempt by the Longhorns.
  • Texas held the Bobcats to only four hits on the night, and picked up 12 strikeouts. Freshman Corey Knebel picked up his 13th save, striking out the side in the 9th. Knebel has twice faced Texas State this season, picking up a save each time and striking out all six batters he has faced.
  • The game marked Texas coach Augie Garrido’s 1,799th win of his career.

 

 

 

  • Sam Houston State beat 8th ranked Texas A&M tonight, 8-5, in 12 innings. The win was significant for the Bearkats because it is the final time skipper Mark Johnson will face the team he coached for 21 years before his retirement at the end of the season. DH Chris Andreas collected four hits for Sam Houston State, including a pair of home runs.
  • Sam Houston State became only the 3rd team to score more than five runs of the Aggie pitching staff. Kansas State put up nine in a victory, while Texas Tech managed eight runs in a loss.
  • Texas Tech won their 8th straight midweek game, improving to 9-1 on the weekdays this season. The Red Raiders scored six runs on only six hits, aided by Stephen Hagen’s grand slam, in their 6-1 defeat of New Mexico.
  • Oklahoma State lost their fourth straight game tonight, falling 7-5 to Wichita State. The Cowboys were swept over the weekend by Texas A&M. It marks the 6th straight road loss for Frank Anderson’s club, which drops them to 3-8 on the road this season.
  • Brian Foley took in the Beanpot Consolation Game in which UMass won 4-2 and the Beanpot Championship which Boston College dominated 8-0. He was able to catch up to Boston College head coach Mike Gambino and Boston College senior Garrett Smith to discuss their reaction to winning the tournament.

 

 

  • A couple of other stories from around the nation is the fact that LSU got back into the win column with a 12-3 victory over Northwestern State to up the Bayou Tigers record to 25-17.
  • The other big story is the fact the Cal-State Fullerton lost 12-8 as the Titans lost to San Diego 12-8 as the Titans aren’t gettin fgood quality pitching in three out of their last first starting pitchers.
