Sunday, UT 20, MU 11

UT sets home run record, routs Missouri (
Missouri (27-25, 10-16) trailed 14-0 after five innings against Longhorn starter Brandon Workman (11-1).

Then the Tigers had eight hits in the last four innings, including two home runs by Aaron Senne and one by Eric Garcia. Senne has 16 for the season.

Workman allowed five hits and four runs in six innings. Senne hit one of his home runs off Workman. Garcia's home run also was against Workman.

"It was a very courageous comeback on their part," Garrido said.

Despite dropping the first two games of the series, Missouri found comfort in going toe to toe with one of the best teams in the nation. Jamieson told the team afterward that it was the first time in a long time he felt the Tigers were all fighting for the same thing.

“I almost wish we would’ve played these guys earlier in the year, so they had an opportunity to experience what it’s like to fight for something that everybody believes in,” Jamieson said. “Hopefully, however many games we have remaining, we can use this in a real positive way.”

“I just really liked the way we came out,” said Nicholas, who hammered his 11th home run over the video board in left-center field. “We had a little chip on our shoulder today, played with some fire in us.”

Texas rallies for 6-4 baseball victory over Missouri (
Texas had 11 hits Saturday, but none during its most successful inning.

Instead, the second-ranked Longhorns capitalized on Missouri's mistakes and used their own resourcefulness to produce two runs in the ninth inning, for a 6-4 victory Saturday.

For the Missouri baseball team in its game against Texas on Saturday at Taylor Stadium, it was all about big catches and big non-catches.

Jungmann stays strong for victory over Missouri (
Taylor Jungmann has produced better pitching performances than the one on Friday night.

And yet his coach, Augie Garrido, could not have been more impressed with the way the sophomore worked his way through seven innings while allowing nine hits during the Longhorns' 5-2 victory at Missouri.

"Taylor Jungmann pitched the most courageous game of his career at the University of Texas," Garrido said. "They hit him hard. They hit him often. He was in trouble almost every inning but one, and he battled his way out."

At a practice earlier this week, while taking infield drills, Liberto's jaw broke when he was hit by a line drive. The ball wasn’t hit hard, but it hit him in the wrong spot.

Liberto’s jaw is wired shut, and coach Tim Jamieson said it is doubtful that he will return.

“The doctor says he can play, but he can’t even eat,” Jamieson said. “It’s just unfortunate for Mike. It’s his senior year and to not be able to finish it on the field, that’s unfortunate for him. The team will respond, but I feel really bad for him.”

■ And finally, congratulations to the Missouri Softball team for their win at the Columbia NCAA Regional. The Tigers will be hosting the Super Regional next weekend.
