Longhorn Baseball Takes Opener From the Tigers 5-2 - Game Two Thread

Despite giving up two home-runs, Taylor Jungmann pitched an solid game against the Tigers to earn his sixth win. Texas struck early in the first inning, when a Kevin Keyes double off the outfield wall allowed Loy to reach home. Longhorn bats came alive in the fourth when Jonathan Walsh dropped a single into the outfield in the fourth to bring Rupp home. Etier quickly followed by driving in a couple runs himself. Etier was finally brought home by Walla for a 5-0 score. 

Jungman protected the lead for seven innings before eventually being replaced by Chance Ruffin. Ruffin was his usual self, earning the save by striking out six of the seven batters he faced. 

Garrido commented on Jungmanmn's performance, "What impressed me the most is the way he kept attacking. Missouri was hitting some good pitches, but he was undeterred. He kept going at the hitters and gave us a great performance. It’s not the best pitching line he’s put up this year, but his effort in continuing to attack was just as impressive as those other games."

The Tigers host the Horns again at 2 PM.
