Game 26: Texas at Oklahoma State

I listened to the beginning of the game from my office. Craig Way and Keith Moreland on KVET. Craig said the wind was blowing hard toward lf and that the temperature had been in the lower sixties earlier in the afternoon. Keith commented that they'd gotten lucky with the weather and that it looked like they'd be able to get all their games in this weekend.

Quick note: Craig reported that Brandon Belt is doing better but did not make the trip to Okalahoma.

The starting line-ups:

Texas Oklahoma State
1 Travis Tucker, 2b
2 Brandon Loy, ss
3 Tant Shepherd, lf
4 Cameron Rupp, c
5 Preston Clark, 1b
6 Kevin Keyes, rf
7 David Hernandez, dh
8 Michael Torres, 3b
9 Connor Rowe, cf
- Chance Ruffin, p
1 Michael Dabbs, cf
2 Kevin David, c
3 Neil Medchill, lf
4 Dean Green, 1b
5 Tyrone Hambly, 3b
6 Tom Belza, ss
7 Doug Kroll, rf
8 Davis Duren, 2b
9 Mark Ginther, dh
- Andrew Oliver, p

And, here's how things played out:

Fantastic. How 'bout Connor Rowe hitting 2 solo shots? Very cool. And, how 'bout the fact that the Horns go down in order in 4 innings (and send only 3 to the plate in another that ended with a double play) but still manage to score 7 runs? I was very happy to see 'em come back and score those insurance runs in the 8th and 9th. Excellent. Chance Ruffin gets the win and goes to 5-2 on the year. And, Austin Wood earned his 5th save of the season.

Here's the line (from OSU's LiveStats):
