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.

With this system blowing through it has canceled quite a few game tonight. But a few of the teams were able to play tonight.
San Diego 7 Oklahoma State 2.

USD wasted no time in scoring as they put up one run on one hit in the first inning. Kevin Muno got things started as he reached on an error and he moved to third on Sean Nicol’s double to left field. Josh Romanski then drove in Muno with a groundout to the second baseman to give USD a 1-0 lead.
Rutgers used a late-inning rally with five runs in the seventh and two more in the eighth and closer Jason Downey (Ballston Lake, N.J.) shut the door with five strikeouts as the Scarlet Knights took down No. 21 Texas A&M, 10-8, in the series opener Friday night in front of 3,304 fans at Olsen Field.
The win improved the Scarlet Knights to 3-4 on the season and gave them their third victory over a nationally-ranked team (also beat No. 25 Old Dominion and No. 22 Georgia Tech) in the young season. Texas A&M fell to 9-3.
