Texas Baseball at Stanford: Game 2 Open Thread

Stanford extended Texas's losing streak to three yesterday by taking the Longhorns down 7-2 at Sunken Diamond in Palo Alto. The game was less lopsided in terms of pitching and offense than the final score would indicate--Texas loaded the bases in the eighth and ninth, once putting the tying run at the plate, but was unable to come up with a timely hit. Stanford opened the game with quite a statement: Jake Stewart blasted a leadoff homerun off Texas starter Nathan Thornhill, and a pair doubles plated a second run in the first. The Cardinal added another three runs in the second inning, though all three were unearned after freshman outfielder Brooks Marlow dropped a blooping liner with two outs.

Without those three unearned runs the entire game is different, so it's hard to get too down on the team's overall performance based on one error and two failures to come up with a base hit. Still, the Horns are in danger of dropping four, or even five, in a row if they can't snag a win in California this weekend. Lefty Hoby MIlner takes the hill to try and stop the bleeding. First pitch is at 3 PM Central and this will be your open thread.
