Texas Baseball Wins Home Opener 10-0

Updated: Tuesday, February 18 2014, 10:55 PM CST
AUSTIN, Texas -- Five Texas pitchers combined for an eight-inning shutout and four Longhorns had multiple-hit nights as No. 18 Texas routed Texas A&M Corpus Christi, 10-0, Tuesday night in the 2014 home opener at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.

The Longhorns (3-2) continued a dominant start to the season on the mound, where eight pitchers have combined for a 17 1/3 scoreless inning streak. In its three-game winning streak, Texas has allowed just two runs, and on the year, the staff owns a 0.86 ERA.

On Tuesday, three freshmen worked the first 5 1/3 innings, with RHP Blake Goins going 2 1/3, LHP Josh Sawyer going 2 2/3 and LHP Jon Malmin 1 1/3. Sawyer picked up his first collegiate victory, striking out four and surrendering just two hits while walking one.

Sophomore right-handers Chad Hollingsworth (1 1/3 innings) and Travis Duke (1/3) came on to finish it out.

The game was called on a 10-run rule with two outs in the bottom of the eighth after C.J Hinojosa hit a sacrifice fly to increase Texas’ lead to 10-0. Hinojosa was 2-of-4 on the evening with three RBIs and one run. Brooks Marlow, Mark Payton and Jeremy Montalbano also had two-hit nights.

Payton, who is now 11-for-21 on the season, made his presence felt early. In the top of the first, Texas A&M-CC (2-3) put runners on the corners with one out, when Kyle Danford hit a line drive to center field. Payton made the catch, then threw a strike to home plate to get Jordan Lee, who was tagging from third base.

The next half inning, Payton hit an opposite field triple and came in to score on a single by Marlow.

Texas added two runs in the third after Ben Johnson and Marlow singled, then scored on a dropped popup by Islanders shortstop Zach Gibson. The big inning for the Longhorns came in the fifth, when they plated five runs all with two outs.

Payton started the rally with a two-out single, and scored when Hinojosa doubled down the left field line. Kacy Clemens, Andy McGuire and Montalbano all followed with singles to make it 6-0. Another A&M-CC error allowed two more runs to score, giving Texas an 8-0 lead after five innings.

In the eighth, Marlow got his second hit of the night with a run-scoring single, and Hinojosa ended it with the sacrifice fly that scored Johnson.

Texas is back in action this Friday, when it opens a three-game series vs. Stanford at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. First pitch is set for 6 p.m.
