Texas ended up with a hole in their schedule and had to wait until last Monday to find an opponent that was under the NCAA-mandated 56-game limit to fill it. The Golden Lions of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff ended up being that team. The Horns beat UAPB 10-4. For the most part, the pitchers were very much on their game. James Russell, Adrian Alaniz, Austin Wood, Joseph Krebs, and Randy Boone combined for 8.1 innings of shut-out pitching. Josh Prince started the 7th and struggled, giving up 4 runs on 3 walks and 3 singles before being replaced. The starting line-up combined for 9 hits and also reached base an additional 5 times on walks and 2 times by getting hit by pitches (ouch). [tag]Russell Moldenhauer[/tag] was the offensive hero of the day, going 3-for-3 with a home run (his 5th of the year) and 4 runs batted in.

Happily, Kyle Russell and Jordan Danks both started today. Last week it looked like they both might have to miss today’s game (Danks with an injury to his shoulder and Russell with a jammed wrist). But, they were both in the line-up and seemed to be just fine.

I think today’s “tune-up” served them well and they look to be in good shape for the upcoming series against the Aggies.
