Texas baseball lost its second straight game by a score of 2-1 to Texas Tech on Saturday. This marked the 7th loss this season (out of 8 total) that have been by one run or in extra innings. Simply put: Texas wins when Texas scores a bunch and Texas loses when Texas doesn’t score a lot.
The Horns jumped out in front early on Saturday thanks to a pair of walks and a throwing error but Texas Tech gained the lead in the 3rd on a two out single. Texas didn’t manage their first hit until a David Hamilton single in the 5th inning and only managed four total singles on the day.
The Horns had their chances though thanks to a pair of Red Raider errors. Texas had runners at first and second with no outs in the seventh but three straight strikeouts from Tech’s reliever ended the threat.
Texas has beaten the teams they should beat and lost to some good teams this year. Dropping two games to a top ten Texas Tech team is no great shame but it is a lost opportunity for the young Horns. Texas can salvage a game tomorrow at 1 PM at the Disch.
