MU-UT: Free Baseball!

By Glenn Tanner - May 04, 2007

Texas rallied for two in the ninth off Missouri closer Kyle Gibson, and we head to the 10th tied 6-6.

Texas mounted a threat in the eighth. Preston Clark smashed a two-out double that brought on Gibson. Gibson walked the first hitter he faced, then Travis Tucker reached on a swinging bunt to load the bases and bring up the top of the order. But with the crowd roaring, Gibson struck out Nick Peoples to end the inning.

In the ninth, Gibson gave up one-out singles to Chance Wheeless and Bradley Suttle. After a strikeout and a walk, Preston Clark squibbed a grounder that somehow snuck through the hole between first and second. With the runners going on contact with two out, both Wheeless and Suttle scored easily. Greg Folgia relieved Gibson and got a strikeout to strand the potential winning run at third.

Randy Boone, who entered the game in the 7th, is still on the mound for Texas.
