Baseball Falls to Houston 1-0, Game Three Open Thread

Brandon Workman gave up a leadoff triple on his first pitch followed by a wild pitch on his second. He then pitched 8 spectacular innings giving up 3 hits and nothing else. Texas' offense however only was able to muster 3 hits of their own and no runs in a 1-0 loss. 10 games in and it's a familiar story: great pitching not being met by great hitting. In a sign that Augie may be looking for answers JUCO transfer Paul Montalbano got a two out pinch hit in the top of the 9th and very nearly tied the game if not for a tremendous defensive play by Houston's shortstop. Either way, it's baseball, crap happens, and you just have to move on and forget about it. The answer to their hitting woes has clearly not been moving to a ballpark that's even more cavernous except for a short porch in left field.

Texas plays Missouri today at 11 AM in a nonconference game. A win would give the Horns a "series" win for the weekend, which is really all you're looking for every weekend. We suspect Cole Green will be on the mound for Texas. You can watch the game online for free here. Time to take out that live rooster and break whatever's been cursing the Texas bats.
