It was a night of milestones on Friday night as Taylor Jungmann through a complete game four-hitter as the Horns dominated Oklahoma ace Michael Rocha in a 5-0 victory. Rocha went the distance as well but gave up nine hits and four earned runs along the way. Jungmann's third complete game shutout of the season came on the night Augie Garrido won his 1,800th (!) career game. He's the first D-I coach to do so. In addition, Brandon Loy hit his second career home run and Erich Weiss set the Texas freshman record with his sixth triple on the season.
To make the night complete, Texas A&M blew a 7th inning 6-1 lead and dropped the opener of its series against Missouri, the worst team in the Big 12 this year. That loss, coupled with the Texas win, brought the squads back to even in the conference standings with eight games to play. For those that enjoy Aggy misery, check out the handiwork done by A&M closer Joaquin Hinojosa (who entered the game 1-0 with 8 saves and a 1.85 ERA) in the bottom of the 9th with a 9-8 lead:
Ampleman hit by pitch. Thigpen grounded out to 3b, bunt, SAC. Jarvis hit by pitch. Mach hit by pitch. Opel struck out swinging. Garcia walked, RBI. Schmidt walked, RBI. 2 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors, 3 LOB.
Cole Green will be on the mound today at 11:30 AM as the Horns go for the series win. The game is on FSN.
