Baseball Takes On Baylor in Critical Series

The preview is late, but so is the Friday night game. It'll be Baylor in Austin tonight at 8 PM, then heading to Waco for Saturday and Sunday. The bats came alive on Tuesday against a Texas State team that is 31-10 including two wins against Baylor, so hopefully that's a sign of big things to come. The Horns have 9 games left. If they can take care of business in the non-conference games and take two of three in each of the next two series, we like the chances of winning the conference and having a pretty good shot at a national seed. Tonight's big. Of note, either Workman or Jungmann is slated to start on Sunday, suggesting Taylor may be rejoining the starting rotation afterall.
