AUSTIN (KXAN) — The No. 3 Texas Longhorns (30-8, 10-2) closed out their 10-game home stand with an 11-1 win and sweep over Abilene Christian in a run-rule shortened seven innings on Sunday.
Texas has won 13 games in a row — the program’s longest win streak since 2010.
“To win 13 straight is tough to do,” said head coach David Pierce. “As you guys know in our sport, anything can happen, I’m glad we’ve had some really tough games in this stretch, as well.”
Texas scored four runs in the first inning to take control of the game. The Longhorns later got home runs from Zach Zubia in the 4th inning and Mike Antico in the 5th inning. Antico led the Texas attack going 3-4 including a single and a triple while scoring three runs.
Zubia, Ivan Melendez, Douglas Hodo III, and Cam Williams also had two-hit games.
Kolby Kubichek pitched five innings, allowing one earned run on five hits while striking out two to earn his fifth win of the season. In the three game series, Texas pitching allowed just two runs.
The Longhorns now go on the road for their next four games. On Tuesday, Texas plays at Texas State before traveling to Oklahoma State for a weekend series starting Friday night.
