Texas tries to bounce back from a midweek loss to Rice this weekend in a key series at Nebraska. All three games will be on tv but we doubt you'll get more than one game. Friday's game is on CSTV at 7 PM CST, Saturday's is on Fox Sports at 3 PM and Sunday's is on ESPNU at noon.
Look for Jordan Danks to recover from a disastrous night against Rice while Kyle Russell tries to extend his grip on the Texas single-season HR record.
The Horns have begun to solidify their weekend pitching rotation of Russell, Alaniz and Krebs. More importantly, Texas will need the bullpen to bounce back from a tough night in Houston in which Austin Wood, Pat McCrory, Keith Shinaberry and Hunter Harris all gave up runs. The expected pitching matchups are as follows:
Friday, April 20, 2007
Texas: LHP James Russell (8-2, 3.15 ERA) Nebraska: LHP Tony Watson (3-2, 3.36 ERA)
Saturday, April 21, 2007
Texas: RHP Adrian Alaniz (9-2, 2.30 ERA) Nebraska: RHP Johnny Dorn (6-1, 4.47 ERA)
Sunday, April 22, 2007 Texas: LHP Joseph Krebs (4-0, 2.91 ERA) Nebraska: TBA
