Texas beat the Aggies one more time, 9-1, to complete the sweep. Five of the Texas runs were scored on 2 home runs in the 4th: a 2-run shot over the left field fence by Preston Clark (his 7th of the year) and a 3-run shot over the right field fence by Jordan Danks (his 4th of the year). The Horns came close to run-ruling the Aggies but couldn’t quite do it. And, frankly, we were kinda hoping they wouldn’t so we could see just a little more baseball. It was Senior Day, after all. Today was the last time we’d get to see any of the seniors (and a few of the juniors, I’m sure) playing in Burnt Orange at Disch-Falk Field.

Austin Wood got the win for the Horns. He pitched the first 8 innings and gave up one earned run on 5 hits with 2 strikeouts, 1 walk, 2 hit batters, and 1 wild pitch. Pat McCrory went in for the 9th, faced the minimum, and threw 2 strikeouts.

The Horns now head to Oklahoma City for the Big 12 Tournament. They will likely be a National seed for the playoffs leading to the CWS. Regardless, they will host a Regional at the Dell Diamond the first weekend in June. Should they win the Regional, they will then (assuming they get a National seed, and there’s absolutely no reason to think they won’t) host a Super Regional at Whataburger Field, home to the Corpus Christi Hooks (Astros AA affiliate), the following weekend. Here’s hoping!

By the way, more details available in the game report on my page.
