Texas Baseball Falters Again

Updated: Friday, May 2 2014, 10:53 PM CDT

Brooks Marlow went 4-for-5 and three other Longhorns had multiple-hit games, but the No. 19/22 Texas baseball team was unable to dig out of an early hole and fell to West Virginia 5-3 Friday night.
 
Texas matched West Virginia with 11 hits on the evening, as Ben Johnson, C.J Hinojosa and Madison Carter contributed two apiece, but the Longhorns were unable to string together multiple hits in an inning until the seventh.
 
Playing for the first time at Hawley Field in Morgantown, the usually reliable Texas defense matched a season high with five errors. A Longhorn miscue helped West Virginia take a 1-0 lead in the first, and the Mountaineers tacked on another run in the third and two in the fourth to assume control.
 
The Longhorns (33-14, 10-9 Big 12) recorded a hit in all but one inning, but were unable to get a run in until putting together a three-run rally in the seventh. Carter and Clemens led off the inning with a pair of singles and after a sacrifice bunt, Marlow followed with a run-scoring single up the middle. Johnson cut the lead to 4-2 on a RBI infield single.
 
With runners on the corners, the Longhorns made it 4-3 on a RBI fielder’s choice from Mark Payton. After Payton and Johnson executed a double steal to put two in scoring position, though, West Virginia pitcher Harrison Musgrave got a strikeout to end the inning and leave the runners stranded.
 
West Virginia (25-16, 8-7 Big 12) added an insurance run in the bottom half of the inning, and reliever Sean Carley came on to strike out four in two scoreless innings, closing the door on the Longhorns.
 
Texas starting pitcher Parker French (5-4) was saddled with the loss after allowing four runs – three of them earned – on eight hits and three walks in six innings. Musgrave (5-3) picked up the win after allowing three runs on 10 hits, while Carley earned his second save of the season.
 
Texas had a tough start to the game, committing two errors and allowing a batter to reach on a passed ball after a strikeout in the first inning. French, though, got out of the inning allowing just one run by getting a popout and groundout to strand a pair of runners.
 
In the third, a pair of infield singles and a RBI single through the left side from West Virginia’s Jacob Rice made it 2-0. The Mountaineers doubled their lead with a two-out rally an inning later. A walk and a double down the left field line put runners on second and third, and Bobby Boyd drove both in with a single just past a diving Marlow.
 
Texas put a runner in scoring position in the first, third and fifth innings, but was unable to get a run.
 
The Longhorns and Mountaineers play game two of the series Saturday at 3 p.m.
