A record regular season open thread for a record win streak for the baseball team. UT defeated Baylor 2-1 in 14 innings on Saturday night to extend their winning streak to 19 games--including 16 straight in Big 12 play, tying Texas A&M for the longest win streak in conference history. Should the 'Horns win again tomorrow, it would be their fifth straight sweep of a Big 12 opponent and they'll have the all-time record all to themselves.
A night after drawing a bases loaded walk to win in Waco in the 10th inning, Paul Montalbano Jordan Weymouth--brought in to pinch hit for a struggling Connor Rowe--failed on two bunt attempts before slicing an RBI double down the left field line to score Tant Shepherd in the 14th inning. (Late night brain fart: Monty scored the game-winning run tonight after leading off the inning with a double.) After a sloppy 9th inning robbed Cole Green of another complete game gem, freshman southpaw Hoby Milner was brilliant in extra innings to keep the Bears at bay until Texas could plate another run.
First pitch in Game 3 versus Baylor is at 2:30 p.m. CT on Sunday. Game is being televised (at least locally) on Fox College Sports.
