Longhorn Baseball
« on: March 28, 2021, 10:47:09 AM »
The Horns are 17 - 6 this year and ranked 9th

they beat Oklahoma yesterday to go 4 and 2 in conference play

they play again today at 1 PM and will be on the LHN

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Yup I was planning on going to a couple of games in the series against OU, but then the kids' soccer games got scheduled and we're all over Central Texas and no time for besibol, sadly.

I did make it to two of the BYU games a couple weeks back.

Horns tie for the conference championship and grab the #1 seed.  We watched some of the WVU series whilst out at COTA for the races.  Still have some troubling inconsistency in the starting pitching, but at this point in the season, it is what it is. 

I don't think this looks like an Omaha-bound team, but they'll be a tough out in the tourney.

I tend to agree but both of us have seen prior Longhorn teams in the past make it to Omaha with less talent so who knows

The key as you pointed out is their starting pitchers

Well Texas drew the national #2 seed and will host a regional for the eleventy-billionth time.  I'll probably go down to the game on Friday if the weather is alright.  

ASU's offense looks potent, that could be a problem for us.  I'm hoping we'll make it out of the regional but this is one of those Texas teams that is just so inconsistent, no result would surprise me.

Need to rediscover our offense. These "3 runs or less" games are making me nervous.

Exactly my concern.

And then when our ace goes out and gives up 3 or 4 early runs by himself... oof.  That doesn't help.

Well I guess our offense did okay over the weekend.  I got to see some of the first two games, didn't go down last night though.  Too late on a school night.  I'm gonna try to make the Friday and Saturday games for the supers, though.

Our pitching showed up

Our bats were not needed because their pitching walked everybody in sight

Those who didnt walk got hit

In short we were not tested so the jury is still out about our offense

But we did advance and the super regional is in Austin so who knows

You play the team in front of you, but Southern was never going to be much of a test. That's by design, and a decent plum for dominating the regular season.

Fairfield and ASU burned through any pitching they might have had fighting against each other. ASU got to face Texas the next day. Fairfield went and fought through 2 more games (including the ASU rematch 9-7) and arrived at last evening contest completely spent. Texas didn't swing the bat, shouldn't have, and stood there while Fairfield walked, plunked, or WPed all the runs they'd need.

The bottom 3rd of the order is still sort of wasted outs, but it was good to see the team do what it needed to do offensively.

Meanwhile, in the Gainesville, UF is out. South Alabama and South Florida will resume today. If South Alabama prevails (they're up 4-0 in the 5th), I suppose they'll do it over again for the opportunity to travel to Austin this weekend.

Only disappointment to me in the Horns' play, was the baserunning. It was a complete mess at times.  That will cost us against better teams.
