In a fantastic and improbable performance, the Texas baseball team came back to win tonight from a 6-0 deficit against one of the top pitchers in college baseball. The Horns knocked off [tag]Arizona State[/tag] and their ace Mike Leake by the final score of 10-6. [tag]Cameron Rupp[/tag] had 2 home runs and freshman pitcher [tag]Taylor Jungmann[/tag] was fantastic in relief of starter [tag]Chance Ruffin[/tag]. The bats came alive throughout the lineup to the tune of 15 hits.

Texas is now 2-0 in their College World Series bracket and in fantastic shape to make it to the title game. Arizona State will have a rematch with [tag]North Carolina[/tag] on Thursday for the right to to take on the Horns on Friday evening. Whoever they face, they’ll have to win two in a row to get past Texas.

See the game’s live blog for more opinions on the game.
