AUSTIN, Texas — The No. 9 Texas Longhorns received a strong pitching performance to stymie the No. 19 TCU Horned Frogs, 6-0, in Tuesday night action at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.
Texas (21-8) broke the scoring seal with two runs in the bottom of the third inning. Connor Rowe led off the inning with a double to left field and advanced to third on Travis Tucker’s bunt single and scored on Michael Torres’ single to left center. With no outs in the inning, the bats weren’t silenced yet, as Brandon Belt laced a single to right field to plate Tucker.
The University of New Mexico is enjoying a breakout season this spring. Consider:
UNM has a 25-5 record, and at 5-1 sits atop the Mountain West Conference;
The Lobos have vaulted to #18 in Baseball America’s national poll, the first time since 1985 they have cracked the Top 25.
The Lobo offense leads the nation in batting average, hits, doubles, and triples.

I was able to get away from work and make it out to Disch Falk Field by the 2nd inning. It was a great Friday Afternoon to take in a game of baseball. Texas open the game with Sophomore Chance Ruffin and UI-C counter with junior left-hander Chris Kovacevich.
The Longhorns manufactured one run in the bottom of the first inning to take a 1-0 lead. Travis Tucker led off the frame with a single through the right side of the infield. A sacrifice bunt by Brandon Loy and a wild pitch pushed Tucker to third and he scored on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Belt.
