Corey Knebel made just his third career start and it was by far his worst. The sophomore was knocked around for five runs on nine hits in under five innings and the Horns couldn't overcome Missouri's pitching or the extra 'L' the Big 12 decided was necessary for their signage. Nathan Thornhill kept Texas alive with four shutout innings but it was all for naught as the Texas offense managed just five hits and no runs. The Horns have now been shutout twice in their last three games and have scored just seven runs in their last four games.
The Horns return to action today against Kansas at 12:30 in an elimination game. There's not much positive to dwell on from Wednesday so we won't try. Look for Dillon Peters or John Curtiss to pitch today as the Horns try to avoid a two-and-done in Oklahoma City. Join us here for an open thread and video should be available through the Big 12 here.
