Texas Baseball at A&M: Game 2

This will become your Game 2 recap once the 'Horns finish up in CS tonight (Knock on Austin Wood).  For now though, here's what's up.  You can follow the game yourself here .

  • Texas goes up 4-2 in the top of the 6th when Kyle Russell goes yard for two runs.  I peed a little.
  • Preston Clark picks up where Kyle left off in the top of the 7th with a bomb of his own, 'Horns up 5-2 again.
  • Defense has been spectacular tonight, again.  Belt started another nice 3-6-1 DP recently.  Gotta love the kid!
  • Same score now in the middle of the 8th.  Russell got on with a single, then Belt was robbed by A&M's first baseman, who snagged a would be RBI line drive and stepped on the bag for the double play to end the inning.  Would have been nice, but let's hold on here
  • Top of the 9th now, Austin Wood is still bringing the nasty, as he got the 'Horns out of the top of the 8th 1-2-3.
  • Texas threatens again in the top of the 9th with runners on the corners and one out, but another great double play by the Aggies keeps the game close.  Austin Wood back on the mound to finish his business.  108 pitches and counting, Aggies' 4-5-6 hitters up.
  • Just as I'm clicking publish, Danks makes a diving catch to save an extra-base hit.  One out.  Danks, by the way, has been all over the field today.  More on that later.
  • After Aggie 1B Anders doubles, Austin strikes out a pinch hitter for out 2.
  • Belt grabs a pop up in foul territory for the win!  What a game by Austin Wood!  This is a whole new team, Longhorns!  Here we come, postseason!
