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 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.

AUSTIN — During rivalry games, players who let the emotions of the game interfere with their play often come out on the losing end.

Whether the No. 17 Texas A&M Aggies were playing too high or low emotionally may not be determined, but the multiple Aggie errors in the Longhorns’ fourth and fifth innings produced enough opportunities for Texas to take advantage.
