After scoring 12 runs on Baylor in the Friday game, Texas could not plate any runners in the Saturday afternoon game until late in the game.
Not that Texas did not have their chances in the game. Texas had the bases loaded in the first- all due to walks, they had runners on the corner in the 3rd, in the 5th they had Jordan Danks on at 3rd and Kyle Russell at 1st and Russell Moldenhauer grounded out to 2nd to end the inning. With out any run support for Austin Wood who was pitching a very nice game ran into trouble in the 7th giving up a solo HR to Hornung and then a Two Run HR to Booker and that ended Austin Woods day.
Game 3 will be on Sunday at 1 and I will have more pictures and a recap of the game.

The NAIA University of British Columbia Thunderbirds have been making an annual trip to Seattle to play the Huskies since 2002. UBC has usually had five or six Division I teams on their schedule, but this year, due to the late February start of the D-I schedule, this was the only D-I game that could be arranged.
The Thunderbirds’ only win against the Huskies came in 2006, the year that the Birds made their only trip to the NAIA baseball national championship. They were on the losing end of a four-game sweep against the #2-ranked and defending NAIA national champion Lewis-Clark State last weekend, but the Birds generally played well against the Warriors. UBC outfielder Matt Chester was injured during the Lewis-Clark State series, and the Thunderbirds currently have two other key players unavailable due to injuries, outfielders Mike Styrna and Nic Lendvoy. The 14-4 win for the Huskies wasn’t a surprise.

Was this the game that turns Texas season around? Could this jump start them to the Tournament?? The verdict is still out them but, this was a game in the right direction for Texas. Everything Texas did went their way in this non-conference game against Texas State. Texas State came into the game batting .336 as a team but, Kenn was entertaining other ideas on the out come of this game. Kasparek threw 113 pitches with 9 strike outs 12 ground ball outs and that would just leave 6 fly balls for the outfield. The tempo of the game started in the first inning when SS David Hernandez went deep into the hole to take away a hit threw out the lead off batter at first. After that Kenn was able to throw any pitch where he wanted it. Continue reading Kasparek throws 20th no hitter in school history as Texas wins 11-0
