Texas 5 Oral Roberts 4 in 10 innings.

Russell MoldenhauerFROM PRESS RELEASE

AUSTIN, Texas – Sophomore Russell Moldenhauer legged out an infield single with bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning to lead the No. 13 Texas Longhorns to a 5-4 win over the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles in collegiate baseball action Monday evening at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.

With one out in the 10th, Jordan Danks singled to rightfield and Preston Clark singled to centerfield to start a rally. After Belt grounded into a fielder’s choice forcing Clark out at second to put runners at the corners, Oral Roberts elected to intentionally walk Kyle Russell to load the bases. Cameron Rupp was scheduled to bat when Coach Augie Garrido pulled the trigger to bat the left-handed Moldenhauer against the right-handed Golden Eagles’ pitcher T.J. Kelly. Moldenhauer chopped a 0-1 pitch which fell between a sprawling ORU third baseman and pitcher for an RBI single.
