Baseball Wins Tough One In San Marcos

Things were nearly flawless for the first nine games of the year, but the Horns struggled in the tenth. Three David Hernandez errors (he finished with four) gave Texas State a 5-3 lead through 6 innings, but the Horns struck back to take a 6-5 lead in the 8th and held on for the 6-5 win.

Brandon Belt homered and Russell Moldenhauer and Travis Tucker came up big leading the Horns back. Austin Wood was brilliant in his longest outing of the season, but the Horns wouldn't have been in this situation without some important innings from Keith Shinaberry.

As we said, it wasn't the easiest of midweek situations, but the Horns showed a lot of heart fighting from behind for only the second time all season. Hernandez struggled for the first time all season, and the starter failed to go 6+ innings for the first time, but the Horns gutted out an impressive win (unlike Rice who fell 8-6 to Sam Houston).

Next Up: Weekend series at Stanford.
