Texas in position to go where it consistently expects to be

2018 is my sixth season covering the Longhorn baseball program. In those years, I’ve seen teams stay at home in the postseason, rally to make the postseason by winning the conference tournament, get eliminated in the regional round, and reach the national semi-finals before losing in extras. In those six seasons spanning two head coaches and dozens of players, 2018 is the first time I’ve seen Texas in the thick of the regular season conference championship hunt.

Longhorns take care of Texas State, 6-2 (+full Pierce and Bocchi quotes)

In order for the upcoming weekend to remain relevant to Texas’ hosting chances, the Longhorns needed to make sure they went undefeated in the midweek at home in 2018 and defeat the Texas State Bobcats Tuesday night. Despite an early 1-0 deficit and a two hour rain delay, Texas did what they needed to do in a 6-2 victory to set up for an important weekend series against TCU.

Longhorn reliables come through in series-clincher over TTU, 7-5

LUBBOCK – Texas’ most reliable options in 2018 have been the trio of Parker Joe Robinson, Kody Clemens, and Zach Zubia. In order to clinch a Big 12 series victory over Texas Tech, UT head coach David Pierce had to rely on those three in what was the most important game of the Longhorns’ season. The trio delivered to help Texas to a 7-5 victory over the No. 8 Red Raiders at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.
