that is great!
Stell strikes out to end the 2nd. Stell has striked out more then any other longhorn on the season with 15 SO. Time to get him out of the lineup if he is not going to make contact.

agree with you...i think he has potential based on what i saw of him last year. Plus he has frame to be something good...of course that means little if you are going to K every time AB.
You are right, I thought he had hit for more homers. My apologies. Stell still sucks.
Good AB by Tech's Brett Bell to work a full count and then single one into left. With Jake Barrios' leadoff single Tech now has two on with one out.
As I type that Thornhill throws a WP, advancing the runners to 2nd and 3rd.
Tech's on the board after Thornhill allows his third hit of the inning.
Sac bunt brings the other runner home. Two outs and a man on second now for the Red Raiders here in the 3rd.
Damn. That was a nice bunt.
Duke and Cox warming up in the pen.
I appreciate Tech bunting with their best hitter against a pitcher struggling with his command.
Grounder to third ends the inning. Red Raiders tag Thornhill for two on three base hits and a sac bunt.
Bottom 3rd: 2-2
New pitcher for Tech.
LHP Jonny Drozd. 3,26 ERA in 19.1 IP. Started three games so far this year for Tech.
Drozd gets through Weiss, Payton and Hinojosa on seven pitches with a grounder to first and two right back to the pitcher.
Top 4th: 2-2
Thornhill gets two more Ks (5 on the day) and a fly to center for a 1-2-3 fourth inning. Looked a lot better after his rough third. Still wonder if they'll leave him in to face the heard of the Tech order again (8 hitter due up in the 5th, so he may get one more inning).
Bottom 4th: 2-2
just need 5 from Thornhill every time out...
Drozd only needs 13 pitches to get through two innings (7 in 3rd, 6 in 4th) and plows through Texas' 3-8 hitters.
Top 5th: 2-2
Ohh Brooks Marlow, i had high hopes for you....
Thornhill and Drozd with a really quick couple of innings here. Thornhill gets one more K - he's now 1 shy of tying his career high - a fly out and a ground out to put down the Red Raiders in order in the 5th.
Bottom 5th: 2-2
Texas with its first hit since Johnson's homer as Hall leads off the 5th with a single to right.
And you use the guy who just homered to sacrifice. Okaaaay
Bunting with your hottest hitter to get to your worst hitter is stupid baseball.
It's just not the bunting, but bunting to a guy that's hitting under .200 and has the most strike outs on the team.
After the bunt Texas hits in to two ground ball outs to end the chance. Really not sure about the decision to bunt with Johnson there and give up the out.
Top 6th: 2-2
Agree, Stell can't hit crap.
I wonder how Augie ever got a job as coach.:-)
