There Are Baseball Gods And They Are All-Powerful

Clearly the deities which oversee all of baseball read our weekend preview and decided to flex a little muscle last night. We wrote that Texas has only given up 7 runs or more 9 times all season, so of course Texas gives up 7 runs. We suggested that A&M may have a pitching problem, so they throw a shut out. We said "Joseph Krebs has put together a string of solid starts", so of course he comes in and gives up 3 runs in 1/3 of an inning of work. We said both Chais Fuller and Russell Moldenhauer had contributed nicely last week, so the two go a combined 0-5 from the plate. Finally, and most impressively, we said that "Texas will need Jordan Danks to bust out of his slump and it has been a little too long since Kyle Russell's last home run." Danks went 3 for 5 and Russell hit two long bombs.

Texas fell to Missouri 7-6 in 11 innings. Clay Van Hook was thrown out trying to score on a Jordan Danks single in the 11th, ending the game. We did not see the game but it seems to be a general rule that one should not end a game like that. We won't try to predict how the remainder of the series will go, let's just hope the baseball gods ease up on us the rest of the weekend. It is interesting to note, however, that Adrian Alaniz hasn't thrown a no-hitter in over two years.
