Longhorns fall short in extra innings

AddThis

Texas starting pitcher Kacy Clemens turned in one of his best performance of the year, but the Longhorns' offense had trouble getting things going, losing 1–0 in extra innings.

Sophomore right-hander Clemens only allowed two hits and a walk while throwing seven innings of scoreless baseball.

Offensively, the Longhorns tried to help Clemens as they were able to get on base three times in the first four innings. But the Cornhuskers shut the Texas offense down.

The Longhorns were kept hitless until the 14th inning when junior left fielder Ben Johnson singled.

Nebraska was able to take advantage of Texas’ mistakes in the 15th inning as junior pitcher Travis Duke hit the Cornhuskers leadoff batter senior catcher Tanner Lubach. Nebraska bunted Lubach over to second and scored him home on game-winning single by senior outfielder Austin Darby.

The Longhorns dropped a pitchers duel Friday and to avoid being swept tomorrow at 12:05 p.m.
