Horns Fall To Hawaii 5-4 in 15 Innings, Sunday Open Thread

A two-out bases clearing double for Hawaii in the bottom of the eighth erased a 4-1 Texas lead and a wild pitch brought home the winning run in the 15th for the Rainbows (weren't they the Tiki Men?). Cole Green pitched well (6.2 IP, 1 ER, 9 Ks), as did Hoby Milner (3.1 IP, 0 ER, runs charged to Stayton Thomas although he gave up the double) and freshman Corey Knebel (3.2 IP, 3 H, 5 Ks) who is saddled with the loss. The Horns had plenty of opportunities offensively but were hurt by Paul Montalbano's 0-7 night. Jordan Etier's 0-4 drops his batting average to .053, although Tant Shepherd and Cohl Walla have begun to show signs of life offensively.

The loss drops Texas to 4-3 heading in to Sunday's game. As Milner threw a lot of pitches on Saturday it'll most likely be Sam Stafford getting the start today. A win would give Texas the all-important series victory heading into next weekend's tilt with Stanford. This Texas team in particular has a lot of new parts that need to be battle tested early in the season. Some will work and some won't but the growing pains are expected. If Texas is having the same problems in May that it's having today then we'll talk about being in trouble, until then...first pitch is at 5 PM CST.
