Both Stanford and Texas were due for this game. Brandon Workman was very solid, but his command was just off, leading to a 7-1 Stanford victory and snapping the Horns' win streak at 11. The game was far closer than the final score would indicate, and the appearance of Jordan Etier, Preston Clark and Russell Moldenhauer in the starting lineup for the first time all season are all positives to take away from this one.
As we said in the preview, taking just one game of the series was an acceptable outcome, but two of three would be fantastic and say a lot about this team's ability to fight back.
It'll likely be Cole Green on the mound against Max Fearnow (starter in the two previous Sunday's for the Tree). Despite his name, Fearnow has been pretty poor to start the season (0-2, 10.57 ERA), whereas Cole Green has been lights out despite getting only one run of support during his two starts.
Game starts at 3 PM Central.
