Texas beats TCU 9-3 to reach Big 12 title game

UP NEXT: Championship game vs 8th-seeded Oklahoma State.

Nolan Brown and Ryan Merrill each had two-run singles for TCU in the first. Texas, which hadn't committed an error in its last seven games, was ranked second among 295 NCAA Division I teams in fielding percentage (.985).

The Cowboys have burned through their most productive starters, but also have had the advantage of playing one less game than the 'Horns thus far in the tourney. The junior has had an up-and-down season, but has historically been a clutch performer in the Big 12 tournament throughout his career.

In the top of the fifth inning, Kacy Clemens led off with a single.

According to the source, Mr Trump's administration was unwilling to highlight benefits of human mobility, Reuters reported. At the G-7, it was Trump's interactions with other leaders that commanded attention.

TCU then quickly pulled away from the Longhorns. Wade then tripled home a run in the eighth and scored on the same play on an error that was charged to Mathis in right field.

From there, Texas played add-on against a taxed Horned Frogs pitching staff. Blair Henley (4-4) allowed only two unearned runs in six innings to earn the win, and Chase Shugart pitched the final three innings for his third save. With two outs, Cantu smashed a home run to left center that opened up a 6-2 lead for the Longhorns. Traver was sporting a 5.13 ERA, but Texas tagged him for only four hits.

After losing a fourth straight game to TCU, the 6th-seeded Texas Longhorns - under first-year coach David Pierce - bounced back from a 9-2 loss to the Horned Frogs in sweltering heat with a 9-3 victory, earning a place in Sunday's Big 12 Tournament finale vs 8th-seeded Oklahoma State.

The Longhorns jumped out early to a first inning lead and did not let up on their way to a 9-3 win over TCU. Schlossnagle is 607-269 in 14 seasons at TCU, and he coached 124 games at UNLV.
