Texas set an NCAA record Saturday with 7 sacrifice bunts but luckily Texas coach [tag]Augie Garrido[/tag] let third baseman [tag]Michael Torres[/tag] swing away. The senior from California had a career day leading the Longhorns going 4-for-5 with 2 home runs and 4 RBIs (and zero sacrifice bunts) as Texas beat [tag]TCU[/tag] 10-4 in the opening game of the Super Regionals. Starting pitcher [tag]Chance Ruffin[/tag] gave up 3 homers but didn’t make many other mistakes during his complete game win.

The Longhorns play TCU today at 2pm on ESPN and if they win they’ll be headed back to the College World Series in Omaha.
