Baseball Travels to Lincoln

[Update 4:56 PM]: Horns take game one 7-5 in a game that wasn't as close as the final score would indicate, until Nebraska threatened in the 9th. Game two start time should be around 6:05 and is allegedly on TV.

Texas travels to Lincoln to take on a struggling Nebraska squad. Texas has had surprisingly good luck on the road in Lincoln the last two visits (4-2) against some really good Nebraska teams, including a 16-inning loss in 2005. Ironically, Nebraska has had a lot of success in Austin the last two visits (4-2). Taking two of three this weekend would be huge as the Horns close with 16 of their last 19 in Austin. Some notes:

  • Cole Green is probably your undisputed Sunday starter. With only four more Sundays left in the regular season, we doubt Augie is going to mess with the rotation. Whether Green or Jungmann gets the third postseason start, if there is one, is another story.
  • Texas has lost three straight Saturday starts and won just one Saturday start since Penn State. Meanwhile, despite Green's struggles, Texas has lost just one Sunday start. 
  • Texas' six runs on Tuesday gives the Horns 6+ runs in five of the last eight games (5-0 scoring 6+, 1-2 below 6) after going 10 straight games without scoring 6 runs.
