Marlow allows a one-out triple to straight away center.
Tech threatening to add to their one-run lead.
It's been that way for much of Augie's tenure. The years Texas has a Top 5 pitching staff and defense they usually end up in Omaha. The years he doesn't his teams don't get out of the regional if his team makes it to the tournament at all.
So you think bunting your hottest hitter to get to your worst hitter is a smart baseball strategy?
....................don't mind the discussion. However Dave have asked us not to discuss small ball on the game thread. NL is just a trouble maker with nothing to add..............by defending him you show your ignorance.
"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
That'll be it for Marlow. Duke coming in.
Come on, guys. Let's be civil AND avoid the small ball stuff. You can point it out, but we don't need the whole back and forth about the merits of giving up outs and whether or not one is qualified to criticize.
How many more times are we going to hear from Kevin Dunn that the BBCOR bats are the reason Texas sucks at hitting the ball?
It's a rather lame excuse to cover for the fact that Augie has done a very poor job recruiting.
Passed ball by Felts scores Barrios after his triple.
We've got some serious yapping from the Tech dugout right now. Umps have it under control. Something worth watching going forward.
Peters did the same thing yesterday. It's easier to talk when you are winning.
Great play by Duke to get to that ball.
NL doesn't need defending from me -- I've found he has quite a lot to add and I consider an insult from you as a compliment.
Since I presume we're allowed to discuss game strategy, you too think that bunting with your hottest hitter to bring up a guy hitting under .200 makes sense?

Texas rolling through their relievers. Cox now coming in for Duke.
Figured we would see Urban since he stiked out 5 of the 5 he faced on friday.
I immediately thought about the down Hook 'em by OU during the basketball game a couple of weeks ago..........
I would think going forward we are going to see a lot of lefties vs Texas. The 2 best hitters in the Texas line-up bat left...........especially lefties who throw junk.
Tech adds a run to its lead off a triple and a passed ball in the top of the 7th.
Bottom 7th: 4-2 Tech
Read Dave's comment............
Big out for Cox to get Tech's hottest hitter of the weekend.
Horns have two on with Johnson up with 1 out.
If Augie bunts Johnson, i am going to lose my mind.
Pinch hitter please.
There's a shock, NOT!
Augie has to be drunk.

Wow. Huge play right there by Tech.
Stell grounds to the pitcher for a 1-2-3 double play with one out and the bases loaded. That hurts.
Top 8th: 4-2 Tech
Good job Stell.
