AUSTIN (KXAN) — The No. 3 Longhorns won their 10th straight game with a 6-5 victory over Nevada on Wednesday night at UFCU-Disch Falk Field.

Freshman 2nd baseman Mitchell Daly drove in the go-ahead run with an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth inning after Nevada scored four runs in the top of the 8th to tie the game 5-5. Texas improves to 27-8 on the season after starting out 0-3.

Sophomore Douglas Hodo III got the scoring started with a two-run home run in the second inning — his second of the season. Texas opened up the game with a run in the sixth on an RBI double from Cam Williams and then two runs in the seventh on a two-run double from Ivan Melendez.

Sophomore Pete Hansen had his longest outing as a Longhorn, but allowed the first two runners to reach in the 8th inning and did not figure in the win.

Freshman Aaron Nixon picked up the victory to improve to 3-2 while freshman Lucas Gordon pitched a perfect 9th inning to pick up his first career save. Eric Kennedy was 3-4 including a double.

In 2010, the Longhorns won 21 straight games.

Texas will wrap up their 10-game homestand with three games against Abilene Christian Friday at 6:30 p.m., Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.
