Texas had a huge victory last night against Texas A&M. The Horns trailed 4-1 through 3 innings but scored a run in the 6th and 2 more in both the 7th and 9th innings. James Russell had a solid outing, going 6 2/3 innings (8 hits, 4 ER) and Joseph Krebs and Randy Boone completed the game keeping the Aggies scoreless.
Kyle Russell hit home run #27 in the top of the first, extending his lead in the NCAA home run chase. Nick Peoples came up huge for the Horns, going 3-4, scoring 2 runs including the eventual game winner.
The win puts Texas one win away from clinching a complete victory in the Lone Star Showdown. Moreover, the Horns have a magic number of 1 to clinch sole ownership of the Big XII regular season championship. A Texas win or a Missouri loss would clinch it. Texas returns to action tonight at 6 PM CST.
