OU-UT: The Elusive Crooked Number

By Glenn Tanner - April 01, 2007

For the second time all weekend, someone put a crooked number on the scoreboard. Texas now leads OU 2-1 after four.

Oklahoma blew a huge chance to add to their 1-0 lead in the fourth. Devin Shepherd led off with a ground rule double, then moved to third when Aaron Reza hit a roller that scooted between short and third. Then on a hit-and-run play, Jackson Williams hit a grounder up the middle. Fortunately for Texas, second baseman Travis Tucker was covering on the play, so he was able to field the ball near the dirt cutout around second. More fortunately for Texas, Shephard got a terrible jump, and Tucker was able to throw him out at home. A backwards K and a fly out got the Longhorns out of the inning unscathed.

Texas took the lead in the bottom of the fourth. Jordan Danks led off with a double, moved to third on a ground out, and scored on Kyle Russell's deep sac fly. Preston Clark followed with an absolute no-doubter that easily cleared the Texas bullpen behind the left field wall and landed somewhere near Pflugerville.
