Texas Loses Series to WVU

Updated: Sunday, May 4 2014, 09:40 PM CDT

The No. 19/22 Texas baseball team dropped its series finale at West Virginia Sunday afternoon, falling 12-6 as the Mountaineers earned the series victory.
 
The Longhorns (34-15, 11-10 Big 12) recorded 12 hits in the game, but allowed a season-high 14 as West Virginia (26-17, 9-8 Big 12) put up 12 runs between the second and fifth innings.
 
Madison Carter led the offense with a 3-for-4 day, while Mark Payton and Collin Shaw added two hits apiece. West Virginia was led by Ryan McBroom and Jackson Cramer, who each finished with three hits.
 
Texas, which was without starter Dillon Peters this weekend, used six pitchers in the game. Starter Lukas Schiraldi (6-3) was pegged with the loss after allowing five runs, three of them earned, on four hits and two walks in two innings of work. Josh Sawyer kept West Virginia off the scoreboard for the final three innings, allowing just two hits in three shutout frames.
 
West Virginia’s John Means (6-1) went 6 1/3 innings and surrendered six runs on 11 hits to get the win.
 
Texas jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning, when Carter led off with a single, moved up on a sacrifice bunt by Shaw and scored on a two-out single up the middle from Alex Silver. A West Virginia error prolonged the inning and Brooks Marlow drove in the second run with another single up the middle.
 
But West Virginia answered in the bottom half of the inning, scoring four runs on just two hits. A two-run double from Cramer knotted the game at 2-2, and two Texas errors helped result in two more runs for the Mountaineers.
 
A leadoff double followed by a single in the third inning ended Schiraldi’s day and put runners on the corners for West Virginia. Travis Duke came on in relief and limited the damage, getting a 4-6-3 double play and groundout to end the inning as the Mountaineers went ahead 5-2.
 
The Mountaineers added four runs on four hits and a Texas error in the fourth to take control with a 9-2 lead.
 
Texas responded in the fifth, scoring three runs on four hits to cut the West Virginia lead to 9-5. Payton drove in the first run with a double to left-center field, and three straight singles from Tres Barrera, Carter and Shaw scored the second. Texas’ third run of the inning came in when C.J Hinojosa hit into a bases-loaded double play.
 
West Virginia, though, came back with three runs in the bottom half of the fifth to go ahead 12-5. Texas added its last run on back-to-back doubles by Payton and Shaw to start the seventh.
 
Texas, which will take the next week off for finals, returns to action on May 13 when it plays host to Texas State at 6 p.m. in the regular season home finale.
