It'll be the #1 Texas Longhorns baseball team versus the #5 Baylor Bears in a meaningful meaningless midweek game tonight at 6 PM that may get rained out. It doesn't count for conference standings, but it does count in the W/L and it's a matchup of two teams that could meet again in Omaha. Freshman Austin Dicharry is scheduled to get his third career start, hopefully things go better than last time.
Some keys to this one:
- David Hernandez is hitting near .400 but now has 7 of the team's 11 errors. That's not good and needs to improve.
- How's Travis Tucker's ankle? Freshman Jordan Etier was fantastic against Stanford, but Tucker had been tearing it up before the injury.
- Now that we're hitting the conference schedule, where's Taylor Jungmann going to contribute? The freshman phenom was terrific in two his first two starts but didn't pitch against Stanford. If Dicharry's going to be the main midweek starter, what role does that leave Jungmann?
