With a chance to take a conference series before game three on the way to the Big 12 tournament, the Longhorns dropped another one-run game, this time to the West Virginia Mountaineers, 4-3. Junior Morgan Cooper took the loss in what was likely his final start at UFCU Disch-Falk Field, and sophomore Kody Clemens was the only Texas batter to have multiple hits on the day, smacking two of the team’s seven hits.

With a long time in between the series finale against TCU and tonight’s game against UIW, the Texas Longhorns had to deal with final exams as well as down time they have not experienced since before the season started. Texas showed few signs of rust tonight as they cruised past a 20-32 Cardinals team, 10-3. Sophomore Nick Kennedy’s starting effort earned not only his eighth win, but also Texas’ 12th midweek victory in 14 games.

Texas traveled to Sugar Land to take on the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns in a midweek match-up at Constellation Field.

They forgot their bats and arms at home. A six-run second boosted by a Louisiana grand slam and silence from the Longhorn bats all evening allowed for UL to cruise to an easy win, 8-1

Texas looked to take the series from the University of New Orleans on a dreary day with the wind blowing in. Although the weather was bleak, the Horns got a bright performance on the mound from junior Morgan Cooper. Cooper’s fast start and Texas’ first inning rally were enough for Texas to defeat the Privateers, 3-2, and take the series.
