MU-UT DH split: 2-0, 0-5

• The Austin American-Statesman reports that UT splits doubleheader against Missouri:
"Man, you want to talk about a good pitcher, that guy is no joke," Texas first baseman Brandon Belt said. "He spots up on every pitch. You go up there looking for a fastball and you get it, and he still gets it past you. Then that's it. He's good. He's the best we've seen this year."
• The College Baseball Blog's Donald Broyles was at the games, and posts several photos from each game, as well as a quote from UT Coach Augie Garrido after Game 1:
"I think that their pitcher was absolutely brilliant."
• Kendall Rogers at says Missouri's Gibson comes into his own:
The talented right-hander is commanding his fastball, still is locating his off speed pitches well, and his velocity continues to climb, topping out around 93 mph against Texas.

"There certainly are a lot of things I'm doing better this season, but one thing that stands out to me is the fact that I am throwing inside with more accuracy and consistency," Gibson said. "If you're able to control the inside part of the plate, that really opens up the slider and change up well. That also allows me to get more ground balls, which in turn, usually leads to more outs."
