One day after giving Texas fans hope that the offense was hitting its stride at just the right time, the bats fell back to earth as the team fell to [tag]TCU[/tag] 3-2 Sunday afternoon. Starting pitcher [tag]Cole Green[/tag] spread 3 runs over 7.2 innings but the offense couldn’t back him up and fell short in a late comeback.

The middle of the TCU lineup featuring Matt Vern and Matt Carpenter once again powered the offense, hitting a home run each to drive in all 3 TCU runs. It’ll be interesting to see if Texas pitches around those two hitters during Monday’s game and forces someone else to beat them.

The two teams face off for the right to move on to Omaha Monday at 6pm on ESPN2. Freshman starter [tag]Taylor Jungmann[/tag] will be on the mound for the Longhorns.
