OU-UT: Texas Gets Insurance

By Glenn Tanner - March 30, 2007



Texas just pushed across a run in the 7th to make it 4-2. Jordan Danks led off with a single, stole second, and moved to third on a grounder. With Kyle Russell at the plate and only one out, OU surprisingly passed on an intentional walk and brought the infield in. It didn't matter, because Sooner pitcher Stephen Porlier lost his focus and committed an obvious balk to allow Danks to score.

Though he only went 5.2 innings tonight, James Russell was effective again for Texas. He allowed two runs on six hits, but one run was a wind-blown homer and the other could have been scored as unearned. Russell also fanned seven without walking a hitter.

The rain is coming fairly soon, but the good news is that it looks light enough to play through as long as the game doesn't go extras.
