Corey Knebel gives up a two-run triple in the eighth inning, but the Longhorns get three straight two-out hits in the bottom of the eighth to win their fifth straight game heading into their conference opener against Texas Tech on Friday.
Erich Weiss scores four times and hits his 13th career triple, moving him into ninth on the Longhorns' all-time triples list, and Cameron Cox earns his first career win as Texas completes a sweep of UCSB, "the most consistent 27 innings" it's played this year, according to head coach Augie Garrido.
Dillon Peters gives up only two runs on two hits over 5.2 innings while Ty Marlow tosses 3.1 shutout innings out of the bullpen to earn his first win of the year after C.J. Hinojosa's double allows Erich Weiss to score the game-winning run.
Sophomore Parker French is expected to take the mound on Friday night for the first game of a three-game series as the Longhorns host the University of California at Santa Barbara to open up spring break competition this weekend.
