Horns Take on Rice @ 6 PM

Let's talk Taylor Jungmann. He leads the nation in ERA at 1.10 in 41 IP. He pitched 4.1 scoreless innings against OU on Sunday, ensuring a series sweep and a Big XII lead. Opponents are hitting .170 against him. In other words, he's been all we could've hoped for as a freshman, and it's no surprise that thanks to his pitching Texas has only lost once on Sunday.

Tonight it'll be a big matchup against Rice at UFCUDFF. Texas has done a lot this year to make up ground on a national seed come June and a win against Rice would be a huge resume booster. A top-8 national seed would ensure the Horns only play at home or their home away from home in Omaha. Starters are TBA but we're guessing it may be Austin Dicharry. Expect short outings and don't be shocked if some of the starters pitch in this potentially important midweek game.
