Texas Baseball Loses 8th Straight Big 12 Series

Updated: Sunday, April 21 2013, 09:31 PM CDT

Jacob Rice led the West Virginia offense during the Big 12 series finale Sunday, going 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the West Virginia Mountaineers earned a 6-3 win in 10 innings against the Texas Longhorns at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.
 
Billy Fleming went 3-for-5, including an RBI single in the 10th that broke the tie before Rice hit a two-run single to cap the scoring. Corey Walter picked up the win for West Virginia (23-18, 6-6) with 4 2/3 innings of two-hit ball, allowing one unearned run with five walks and four strikeouts while Pascal Paul retired three in a row in the 10th after the Longhorns (21-17, 5-10) had put their first two runners on base.
 
The Mountaineers were the first to jump on the scoreboard in the top of the fourth with a run from Taylor Munden after he doubled to lead off the inning and later scored on Ryan Tuntland’s RBI groundout. The Longhorns quickly matched the run in the bottom of the fourth after Mark Payton tripled to right field and scored on Ty Marlow’s sacrifice fly.
 
West Virginia regained the lead in the fifth as Rice hit a solo homer to left for the 2-1 advantage. Brooks Marlow singled in the bottom of the fifth, advancing to second on the fielding error by Rice in left field. Weston Hall and pinch-hitter Erich Weiss to load the bases before C.J Hinojosa lifted a sacrifice fly to right to tie the game. Hall gave Texas a 3-2 lead after a passed ball scored him from third.
 
West Virginia tied it up in the top of the sixth when Ryan McBroom scored on a single from Matt Frazer. Texas had runners at first and second with two outs, but Alex Silver flied out to center. The Longhorns had another chance in the ninth, but Walter was able to get Hall to ground into a 1-6-3 double play to send the game to extra innings.
 
In the top of the 10th, the Mountaineers used three walks and three singles against Corey Knebel (3-3) to produce three runs. Knebel would finish with three runs on five hits allowed in 3 1/3 innings.
 
Texas concludes its five-game homestand this Tuesday (April 23) with a 6 p.m. game against Houston at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. The game will be televised on Longhorn Network with radio on AM 1300 The Zone. Gametracker live stats will be available on TexasSports.com with live Twitter updates @Texas_Baseball.
 
Notes: Mark Payton recorded his sixth triple of the season and 12th in his career…Payton needs one more triple to break into the Texas’ all-time career top ten for triples (13)...Payton has reached base safely in 27 straight games…Texas is now 1-2 this season in extra innings.Texas Baseball Loses 8th Straight Big 12 Series
