Texas dropped a heart breaker Friday night, spoiling a great outing by Parker French by not being able to hit WVU's Harrison Musgrave in a 1-0 loss. They'll look to bounce back today to set up a rubber match on Sunday for a chance to win their first Big 12 series of the season.
WVU: RHP Dan Dierdorff (2-4, 3.60 -- 12 app (7 starts), 45.1 IP, 44 H, 27 SO, 18 BB)
Texas: LHP Dillon Peters (3-2, 2.05 -- 9 app, 57 IP, 46 H, 32 SO, 14 BB)

Cool little ceremony to honor the '83 national title team. Rocket and Gustafson in the house.
Just heard the Weiss injury from last night is officially a nasal bone fracture. He was cleared for competition today, but he will be held out today and tomorrow.
Peters gets them down in order to start the game. He had to battle the WVU leadoff hitter, Munden, out of the gate, but got an easy pop to third and a grounder to short after getting Munden to fly to center on a full count.
Bottom 1st: 0-0
Still trying to figure out why those who live south of Ft Worth (Cleburne) get LHN and I am equal distance north of Ft Worth and don't have LHN on my Charter cable. My table that Charter provides says that I should be getting it in both HD and regular.
I was in hopes to watch baseball....
WHOA!!! I hadn't checked today to see if I was getting it but checked and on 701 is LHN!!!!!!!!!! Happy days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wait til you watch a couple of these games before you go celebrating. I kid, I kid.
Great play by WVU right fielder Brady Wilson on a diving catch for out no. 1 in the bottom of the first.
Hall reached on an error by the shortstop to start. 1 on, 1 out.
WVU was very concerned with Hall on first the entire inning and they wind up calling a perfect pitch out and easily get him attempting to steal second for the third out. Carter and Hinojosa both flew out for the other two outs.
Top 2nd: 0-0
It's taken a lot of pitches, but Peters has retired all six batters faced through two. He gets his first K of the day in the second while also getting two grounders. Just one ball hit out of the infield so far on the Texas starter.
Bottom 2nd: 0-0

Seriously. Retarded call by Augie. You think they were ready for the bunt.
Pretty horrible base running there. Payton leads off the inning with a triple to deep right-center (could have been an inside-the-parker if he had been sent), then after Ty Marlow strikes out Alex Silver lays down a safety squeeze that hung Payton out to dry at the plate.
Two outs, Silver on first.
And the Horns officially squander the opportunity when Jacob Felts grounds out to short for the third out. Unbelievable to not be able to get a run out of that. Horns had a guy 90 feet from home with no outs and don't get a run.
Sums up the season.
Top 3rd: 0-0
Pitiful. Does Texas have a hitting coach? I contend we need a new one.
Great throw by Payton to get the lead base runner at third (though it looked like the guy rolled his ankle or something rounding second. Very slow to third). Two down, man on first after back-to-back hits to start the 3rd.
Umps overturn the third out on a Marlow unassisted tag at first. They say he fielded it foul. Horns come back out on the diamond with two gone and a man on first. Still no score.
No harm done as Munden then flies out to right for the third out. Peters allows his first two base runners of the day, but thanks to the throw by Payton to get the out at third WVU can't get anything out of it.
Bottom 3rd: 0-0
I wonder if we score this weekend?
That would be swell.
But not in the third. Shaw, B. Marlow and Hall go down in order. Texas has sent just one more than the minimum to the plate through three.
Peters has faced just one more than the minimum through four innings pitched after getting his third K of the night and two grounders in the 4th.
Bottom 4th: 0-0
Haha. Wouldn't it though. Beginning to wonder if this team can score without multiple walks to help them
Let's see if Texas can get something here. Carter with a lucky double as the wind killed a pop to right, making it land safely in front of the fielder. A hit by Hinojosa has runners at the corners with no outs. Got to get something across.
Payton doubles off the right-field wall scoring Carter from third. Hinojosa held at third, so runners at second and third with no outs in the bottom of the 4th. Three straight hits to start the inning for the Horns.
Ty Marlow catches a lucky break. He hit the first pitch he saw right back to the pitcher. The ball caromed off his leg and made it's way to shallow center field, allowing both runners to score.
It's an offensive explosion for the Horns here in the 4th. Collin Shaw hits an RBI double down the right field line and then Brooks Marlow brings him home with a single to left.
There's the bats!
