Rice-UT: Texas Widens the Gap

By Glenn Tanner - March 27, 2007

Texas has plated two more runs and now leads Rice 5-2 after six innings.

Austin Wood gave up a couple of hits in the sixth, and with runners at the corners and two outs, Pat McCrory came on in relief to get the Horns out of the inning.

Texas tacked on to their lead in the bottom of the inning. After an error, a fielder's choice, and a single, Chance Wheeless lined a single up the middle, his third hit of the night, to make it 4-2. Wayne Graham brought the hook to the mound, and Berry was replaced by Jared Gayhart (1.59 ERA in 5.2 innings over 5 games). With runners on second and third and one out, Rice played the infield back and conceded a run on a grounder.

Wood was excellent tonight. He retired the first fourteen Rice hitters and went 5.2 innings, allowing only three hits and no earned runs. He fanned two and walked none.
