Tech-UT: I'd like to endow a relief pitcher, please

By Glenn Tanner - April 14, 2007

It's getting uglier here in Austin. Texas has pushed its lead to 8-0, and Tech is showing very little life.

Red Raider leadoff man Chris Hall at least got off the schneid in the sixth. No, he didn't get a hit, but when you've whiffed five times in a row, flying out to center is a huge moral victory.

Texas sent eight hitters to the plate in the fifth and busted it open with three runs. Chance Wheeless got on base for the third straight time today on a walk, stole second, and scored on Preston Clark's double. An error put runners on the corners, and Russell Moldenhauer singled to drive in his third run of the day. Travis Tucker followed with a single to make it 8-0. Through five innings, the Longhorns have 10 hits.

Adrian Alaniz is still cruising for Texas. He has allowed only two hits and no walks and has struck out seven.

Fun from the Tech media guide...
The Red Raider Club, Tech's booster club, will not only accept your donations, they will also let you endow a scholarship for a particular position. Football has drawn the most interest, as the university has received endowments for quarterback, rush defensive end, cornerback, center, defensive tackle, and safety... plus my favorite: generous James E. Sowell of Dallas has endowed a scholarship for Tech's punter. Three other sports have each received one endowment: men's basketball (center), women's hoops (point guard), and men's track (800 meters). If you're interested in endowing a baseball scholarship, this team could really use some pitching.
