Texas reclaimed the lead in the following inning with a Zach Zubia home run to right field. 

The Longhorns opened the seventh inning with a pair of lead-off walks to Mike Antico and Mitchell Daly.  A single to third base, allowed Antico to advance to third and then score on an ensuing throwing error. 

Texas’ eighth inning again opened with a pair of walks to Douglas Hodo and Silas Ardoin.  Both runners advanced into scoring position on a fielder’s choice by the pitcher.  Hodo scored on a ground-out to second base by Kennedy.
