Most of you, I would suspect, will not agree with what I'm about to say. If you are on this site, you probably are serious about your Longhorns, you have high expectations for UT sports teams, and you want the school to always strive to do the right thing. Which is why Augie Garrido should be allowed to finish his contract next year as the Texas baseball coach.
AUSTIN -- On Thursday, head coach Augie Garrido said that his team avoided “the weird” in their win over the TCU Horned Frogs. The Texas Longhorns avoided “the weird” again on Friday, taking game two over the Frogs 2-0 in a game that lasted only two hours and 14 minutes.
SAN MARCOS -- After allowing the Texas State Bobcats to tie the game with two home runs, the Texas Longhorns exploded for six runs in the 11th to defeat the Bobcats, 10-4 in San Marcos. Through four innings, Texas only had two hits on four hard hit balls. They advanced a runner to second in the first after junior center fielder Zane Gurwitz reached on an infield single. After being moved on a sacrifice, Gurwitz failed in his attempt to steal third with two outs.
AUSTIN, Texas—A dominant eight innings by senior starter Ty Culbreth and a nine-run, 13-hit effort from the Longhorns offense propelled No. 23 Texas to a 9-0 shutout win over visiting Stanford. The Longhorns now lead the series two games to one.
After visiting Omaha in 2014 and reaching the national semifinals, 2015 was supposed to be another banner year for the Texas Longhorns baseball program. While the team began strong out of the gate, a midseason non-conference sweep at the hands of Nebraska proved to be a major turning point in the season. The team stumbled into the Big 12 Tournament, needing to win in Oklahoma City to even have a chance at the field of 64.
On what was most likely his final start at UFCU Disch-Falk Field, senior Parker French delivered one of his best performances of the season. French threw 7.2 innings on a career high 131 pitches, allowing seven hits and walking three while striking out seven and stranding 10 in Texas’ 3-0 victory.
Texas came back from a disappointing weekend sweep at TCU with an offensive explosion while limiting Prairie View A&M to just one hit in a 12-4 victory. Seniors Collin Shaw and Brooks Marlow both homered, and junior Ben Johnson was 3-for-4 with two RBIs, three runs and four stolen bases.
It has been a long time since Texas baseball lost eight straight, and it will only get longer. Texas avoided a meeting with history thanks to three hits from freshman shortstop Joe Baker and two RBIs from senior second baseman Brooks Marlow in a 6-4 midweek victory over Wichita State.
