The series started off with a 3-1 win, capped off by a one-run home run by redshirt junior Cam Williams in the third inning. Williams would make it a habit of going long for the series, hitting two over the fence including seven RBI’s through the four games.

The play of the series goes to Zach Zubia who’s three-run inside-the-park home run led to what would be the biggest blowout of the series in game three. Zubia hit .400 for the series with three RBI’s.

The top pitching performance was by redshirt sophomore Ty Madden, who rebounded from his performance against Mississippi State in his game three start. Madden pitched 7.0 innings allowing only one hit and 11 strikeouts, by far the most dominant performance from any Longhorn in the series.
The only black eye from the Longhorns was in their loss in game four — allowing five runs, all in the top of the sixth inning, which turned out to be the difference maker.
The team led 4-0 through five innings, but gave up the five runs on five hits with two men still on was too much to overcome, as neither team scored from that point on.
The Longhorns next game is against Texas A&M – Corpus Christi, followed by a three-game series in Houston vs. the Cougars.
