The No. 18 Longhorns cruised to a 10-0 shoutout of the Texas A&M Corpus Christi Islanders in 8 2/3* innings on Tuesday night in their home opener at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. Four Texas hitters had two hits in the win, in which Texas used five pitchers to keep the Islanders off the scoreboard.

“After dropping two in California, it’s always good to come back and get our feet wet and get the W,” sophomore C.J. Hinojosa said. “It was good that we got our first win at home.”

After scoring once in the first and twice in the third inning, the Longhorns put together a five run rally in the fifth to pull away from the Islanders.

“We had two outs nobody on, we get a rally started,” head coach Augie Garrido said. “Several of the hitters had two strikes on them, found a way to get in play and get the rally going. That’s as good as it gets.”
