Game 29: Texas at Texas Tech

I listened to today's game at Texas Tech on the radio and this report is based on that broadcast. Ricky Jacquez got the start and earned the win moving his record to 2-1. Erich Weiss was the offensive hero of the day, going 4-for-6 with a home run, 2 runs batted in, and 3 runs scored. The team combined for 19 hits, though, so nobody was left out. We got to see multiple-hits by Maitland, Weiss, Walsh, Marlow, Silver, Stell, and Etier; multiple-runs-batted-in by Payton, Weiss, Marlow, Silver, Felts, and Stell; and multiple-runs-scored by Weiss, Walsh, Marlow, Silver, and Stell. Pretty cool.

Here's the line (from GameTracker):

Play by play:

This was an especially nice win after the way things went during and after last night's game. The Horns played well except for the errors. It sounded like two of the errors were more-or-less tough luck calls so I'm not terribly torn up about them. The Horns will now play Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Tuesday and then Oklahoma State comes to town next weekend for our first conference series at home in the 2012 season. Hook 'em!
