Longhorns beat Houston in strange game


AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Longhorn baseball team beat The University of Houston 9-4 on Tuesday night at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. 

Texas improves to 29-15 and is 16-0 in midweek games under head coach David Pierce. The Longhorns fell behind 3-0 in the first inning before scoring four runs in the 3rd inning and five more in the fourth inning. 

The oddity is Texas did not score one of their nine runs on a base hit.  In the third, Texas scored two runs on hit batters with the bases loaded, a bases loaded walk and a sacrifice fly. 

Then in the fourth inning, Texas scored on a bases walk, bases loaded wild pitch, bases loaded wild pitch and two runs on a ground ball to short from Zach Zubia that was thrown away.

Texas now heads to West Virginia for the first of two straight Big 12 series on the road. 

The Longhorns have a total of 11 games remaining, most agree 35 wins is a lock to get them into the NCAA tournament, but they are still in the hunt for shot at hosting a regional.
