Texas Shows Baylor No Mercy

Texas showed no mercy as they defeated Baylor 20-1 on Friday.  Texas sent 40 batters to the plate, and batted around the order in the 4th and 7th innings. 

Texas was led offensively by Trey Faltine with 3 hit in 5 at-bats for 5 RBIs.  Douglas Hodo III also went 3-for-5 for 2 RBIs with a home run and a double.  Ivan Melendez, Silas Ardoin, Kimble Schuessler and Skyler Messinger all homered for the Horns. 

Baylor’s lone run came in the 3rd inning on a single by Tre Richardson to score Esteban Cardoza-Oque. 

Texas’ starting pitcher Pete Hansen (W) improved his record to 7-1, allowing 1 run in 5 innings.  Hansen struck-out 4 batters and walked 1.  Zane Morehouse pitched 3 innings of scoreless relief, allowing just 2 hits, and striking out 3.  Daniel Blair faces just 3 batters in the final frame to close out the game. 

Baylor starting pitcher Will Rigney (L, 2-2) endured the loss, allowing 1 run on 1 hit in what is officially recorded as 1 inning’s work.   Rigney walked the lead-off batter in the second inning and then left the game feeling a twinge.  The real damage, however, was done to reliever Jake Jackson, allowing 10 runs on 10 hits in 2.1 innings pitched.
