Texas to Tussle with Aggies

Updated: Friday, May 30 2014, 11:06 AM CDT

Six of the players on UT's 27-man postseason roster are from the greater Houston area.





"To be in a familiar place, I think, is a lot easier," said Texas head baseball coach Augie Garrido.

But
that's not the only reason Texas feels right at home this weekend. The
Longhorns have won nearly 70 percent of their games not played at UFCU
Disch-Falk Field this season. 15 of UT's 19 home runs have come away
from home and the team batting average is 25 points higher on the road.





"We are coming from our field, where nothing really leaves the park
there," explained Texas second baseman Brooks Marlow. "Faster infield. Most ground balls at our place are outs and most
ground balls at other places are hits."





"We've traveled all over the whole country this year, so it doesn't make a whole lot of difference," said Garrido.

If
you travel without a GPS, you get turned around. So the "love" between
Texas and Texas A&M, tomorrow's opponent, must be using a map -
because it is definitely not lost. When asked if he missed the Aggies,
UT pitcher Parker French smirked and said, "no comment."

Last year was the first season since 1914 that UT and A&M have not played. But who's counting? The games this weekend most certainly count.

"We'll bring in everyone we can depending on the score of the
game to get us a win in the first game to stay in the winner's bracket," Garrido shared.





"With a good start in game one, you only have to win two more games, instead of playing five," noted Aggies starting pitcher
Daniel Mengden.

When
A&M and Texas first split up, the thought was: these two schools
will avoid playing each other, come Hell or high water. Surely Hell is
not as humid as Houston, so what about that high water?
 


"Funny industry that weather business," Garrido joked. "But so is ours."

This
weekend, Augie's business might actually be weather business. The
forecast in Houston calls for 40 percent chance of thunderstorms Friday,
Saturday and Sunday.
