In fantastic news for the fortunes of the Texas baseball team, catcher Cameron Rupp’s shoulder injury is not as serious as initially feared. Rupp took a pitch directly to his collarbone in Tuesday’s game against [tag]Texas State[/tag] and the rumors were he would be out an extended period with a broken collarbone. Instead he was back out at practice already today and suffered only a deep bruise to his shoulder/chest area.

There is no word yet whether Rupp will be available for this weekend’s series against [tag]Stanford[/tag].

Kenn Kasparek tosses no hitter

Big Texas right hander [tag]Kenn Kasparek[/tag] tossed nine hitless innings today against the [tag]Texas State[/tag]. Kasparek struck out nine as the Longhorns beat the Bobcats 11 – 0.

Kasparek’s no-no is the 20th is Texas history, the last one was throw by Adrian Alaniz over the Oklahoma Sooners in April 2005. I saw Beau Hale’s no hitter over Sam Houston State in person on February 11, 2000. It was a special experience being there in person, so hopefully there was a full house at Disch-Falk Field to see Kasparek’s performance today.

Texas pulls away from Texas State late. Horns were working on man defense and didn’t get the job done.
