Texas Beats Texas State for 18th Straight Time

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT

Junior first baseman Ty Marlow went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the Texas Longhorns defeated the Texas State Bobcats, 12-5, in a non-conference game at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. Texas (18-13) recorded a season-high 16 hits while turning five double plays.
 
Marlow's homer marked the second time this season a Longhorn player hit a homerun for his first collegiate hit. Freshman shortstop C.J Hinojosa went 3-for-4, adding another three RBI to tie his season best while Mark Payton was 4-for-4 with two RBI.
 
Freshman left-handed pitcher Travis Duke (2-0) registered the win for UT. Duke threw 3 1/3 innings, giving up one unearned run and one hit with one strikeout.
 
Lucas Humpal (2-1) took the loss for Texas State (12-20). Andrew Stumph, who went 2-for-4, led the Bobcats with two RBI. Morgan Mickan and Garrett Mattlage recorded two hits and one RBI apiece.
 
The Bobcats got their offense off to an early start. In the top of the first, with two outs and two on base, Stumph hit a single up the left side and batted in Mattlage, who was hit by a pitch to get on base. The Longhorns answered in the bottom of the first. Payton’s stand-up double deep into right field allowed Erich Weiss to score the first UT run of the day. The next batter, Hinojosa, hit a single to right field and batted in Payton.
 
Texas kept the momentum going with two runs in the second. Ty Marlow registered a solo to left field. Next, Ben Johnson reached on a double up the left line. He was batted in by Weston Hall, who connected on a single up the middle for the 4-1 Longhorns advantage.
 
Starting pitcher Josh Urban found himself in a jam in the third. Mickan reached on a single and stole second. Mattlage walked to first and a wild pitch advanced both runners. Cody Lovejoy's groundout brought home Mickan. With two outs in the top of the second, Duke took over the mound and promptly earned a strikeout.
 
It was Ty Marlow who got things going again for the Texas offense in the third. With a runner on first and third, his single to right field brought Payton home.
 
The Horns kept it rolling in the fourth, recording another four runs with Jeremy Hallonquist pitching. Payton's single to right center earned him one additional RBI and moved Weiss, who reached base on a fielding error, to third. Hinojosa's single allowed Weiss to score and Mark Gottsacker's walk loaded the bases. Jeremy Montalbano's single through the left side added two more runs for Texas for the commanding 9-2 lead.
 
In the top of the fifth, Mattlage's double scored Texas State's third run, but Hinojosa's single to left center added another run for UT in the bottom of the fifth.
 
With Chad Hollingsworth on the mound, the Texas State offense would tack on one more run in the eighth. Mattlage tripled to right center and scored on a Stumph single through the left side. The Longhorns answered with two insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth with the Bobcats completing the scoring with a run in the ninth on Micken’s RBI triple.
 
Texas resumes Big 12 play this weekend at Kansas. Friday’s game starts at 6 p.m. with a 2 p.m. start on Saturday and 1 p.m. start on Sunday. All three games will be broadcast on AM 1300 The Zone. Gametracker live stats will be available on TexasSports.com with live Twitter updates @Texas_Baseball.
