Post Game Thread - @ Texas
Final mid-week game of the regular season is tonight. Considering how the season has gone for both teams this is a fairly meaningless game as both teams will have to win their conference tournament if they want to make it to the NCAA tournament this year. Biggest storyline is if Texas can keep their ridiculously long winning streak against the Bobcats alive. It currently sits at 24 straight games won in the series by the Longhorns. Rain in the forecast so we will see if the game is even played at all.

Series Info: Texas State (27-25) at Texas (21-27)
Site: UFCU Disch-Falk Field – Austin, Texas
Date: Tuesday, May 17
Time: 6 p.m.

Probable Pitching Matchups
#13 LHP Brandon Lewis (2-1, 4.28 ERA) vs. #19 RHP Connor Mayes (0-4, 3.94 ERA)

Jonathan Hennigan was scratched from his scheduled Saturday start at Arkansas State with muscle spasms so Jeremy Hallonquist was forced to make a weekend start. With Hallonquist unavailable tonight, Brandon Lewis will get his first shot to start a game since winning vs. TAMU-Corpus way back on April 6th. Lewis was a starter to begin the season but lost his spot when Geisler became healthy enough to enter the rotation. With few 5 game weeks he hasn't had many opportunities as a starter since. He has pitched 4 times in relief since his start vs. Corpus, most recently going 1.1 innings vs. Georgia State on May 8th.

Game will be televised on Longhorn Network (and it looks like they will be showing the replay of the 4/26 TXST/UT matchup at 3:30 as a warmup).

given the forecast and severity of predicted storms, i'd put money on this game getting called by 5:00 or so.


edit: looks like the winds have changed to almost due north and the storms might miss austin.

Ty plans to throw 9 pitchers one inning apiece to save as much pitching as possible for the UTA series.

Theriot in to pitch the 2nd.

Walk, sac bunt, walk, walk loads the bases.

We won't win this game throwing nothing but bullpen arms. Hopefully this sacrificial loss will keep us fresh for UTA series.

2-RBI Double off Hoffmans glove makes it 2-1 Horns.

Strikeout ends the 2nd. 2-1.

He just got back into the lineup from an injury that held him out for about a month. Wonder if he's 100% yet.

Pagano pitches a clean 3rd to make it 2-1 through 3.

Bobcats stranded a runner at 3rd in the top half.

FYI the horns are doing the same thing we are pitching by committee.

Both teams are treating this like a spring training game.

perez did surprisingly well for a guy who usually plays 2b.
