We neglected to cover the Longhorn baseball team properly while college basketball was on center stage, but we've roared to life in the last couple weeks - just in time to see Texas do its best impression of the 1998 New York Yankees.
The team takes the diamond tonight at 6:05 for one game with UT-San Antonio, the only time this year the two teams will compete. Texas is trotting out Kyle Walker (1-0, 9.00 ERA) to start, while Blake Brannon (1-3, 7.71) will take the first pitch for UTSA.
The 'Horns moved up to #7 in the latest Baseball America rankings after a week with a win over Rice and two out of three from Oklahoma. As of today, the Longhorns are on pace to set school records in batting average (.330) and slugging percentage (.522).
