Texas vs. Houston Open Thread

Consider the questions about Chance Ruffin answered. For now. Ruffin came in and struck out three of the five batters he faced to shut the door after a very strong no-decision by Taylor Jungmann (7.2 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 8 Ks). Jungmann's ERA has now skyrocketed to 0.83 while Chance has now given up just the one earned run in six appearances (0.82 ERA). Brandon Loy's batting average may still stink but he had the biggest hit of the night for the Horns, an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth to give Texas the lead for good. After an incredible start, Tant Shepherd is coming back down to earth with an 0-11 performance his last three games, but Tant got on base and scored both runs for Texas on Friday. The win over Rice broke a four game losing streak to the Owls.
