Austin Woods threw 12+ hitless, scoreless innings in relief before leaving after finally giving up his first hit.

Austin Woods was dominant and durable in relief.

The game lasted over 7 hours and ended after 1 am, but in the end the Longhorns came out on top of [tag]Boston College[/tag] and have moved to 2-0 in their CWS Regional bracket. Next up for Texas will be a game tomorrow at 6pm against the winner of the BC/Army match-up. Texas will have two chances to win one game to advance on to the Super Regionals next weekend.

The heroes of the game on both sides were the relief pitchers. Until the winning run in the 25th inning, Texas had gone 23 straight scoreless innings and BC finished up with 18 scoreless in a row. For Texas, [tag]Austin Wood[/tag] came into the game in relief of [tag]Chance Ruffin[/tag] and proceeded to put on a historic pitching display. Wood threw 12+ innings of hitless, scoreless baseball before finally leaving 160+ pitches later in the 20th inning after giving up his first hit of the night. It was an incredible performance from both teams. (more …)

The Texas Longhorns had a rough weekend at the Houston College Classic at Minute Maid Park but finished it off Sunday with an 8-7 win over the hometown [tag]Houston[/tag] Cougars.

The Horns went into the seventh inning with a 6-1 lead thanks mainly to a three-run [tag]Cameron Rupp[/tag] single in the first and a two-run homer in the fifth by first baseman [tag]Brandon Belt[/tag]. Texas starter [tag]Cole Green[/tag] pitched six strong innings before fading quickly in the seventh and giving up four runs before being pulled. The Cougars added two more runs in the top of the ninth to send the game into extra innings.

In the bottom of the tenth, freshman [tag]Connor Rowe[/tag] played the role of hero by singling in the game-winning run in his first college at bat. Rowe knocked the 2-0 pitch into centerfield to easily score David Hernandez from third base and give the Longhorns the much needed win.
