Game 10: Texas at Tennessee (Houston College Classic)

Once again, I listened to this afternoon's game on the radio and this report is based on that broadcast. The Horns had a miserable 1st inning and came up just short as they worked hard to recover. They lost to Tennessee 4-5.

Here's the line (from GameTracker):

[Final line score]

The lineups:

Texas  Tennessee
Mark Payton (rf)
Tim Maitland (cf)
Erich Weiss (3b)
Jonathan Walsh (lf)
Christian Summers (dh)
Jacob Felts (c)
Kevin Lusson (1b)
Jordan Etier (ss)
Brooks Marlow (2b)
Zach Luther (3b)
Zach Osborne (ss)
Chris Pierce (lf)
Drew Steckenrider (1b)
Chris Fritts (cf)
Jared Allen (rf)
Davis Morgan (dh)
Ethan Bennett (c)
Will Maddox (2b)

And, here's how things played out:

Hoby Milner took the loss and moved his record to 1-2. Things got pretty exciting there at the end but the Horns came up just a bit short. It's nice to see Marlow's bat coming back to life. I hope it sticks. Those two hits (by Felts and Walsh) wherein they were gunned down at 2b as both seemed to think they'd hit sure doubles were painful. I have to say that it was nice to see the Horns battle back from the 0-4 hole...despite the eventual outcome.

Up next are the Arkansas Razorbacks tomorrow at 11 am. Hook 'em, Horns!
