TCU: 7 | Texas: 5

Official Attendance: 7323

No. 7 Texas Baseball could not bounce back from No. 23 TCU's first and second innings and takes the loss in game two, 7-5. TCU came out swinging against Tristan Stevens with three runs in the first inning, and again in the second giving TCU a 6-2 lead going into the third inning.

In the fourth inning, Texas scored two runs when Dylan Campbell hits a ball 383 feet for a {{ HOME RUN }} over right field. Dylan hit another {{ HOME RUN }} to start the ninth, and give the starting lineup a chance to pull out a win. Campbell also had four RBI on the night.

Texas needed to use their bullpen to keep TCU from running away from the game and did an outstanding job. Tristan Stevens pitched two inning, faced 15 batters, gave up three doubles, a home run, and threw one strike out. Aaron Nixon came in and immediately struck out two and walked two. Marcus Olivarez faced five TCU batters, threw 22 pitches, 11 for strikes that held TCU at bay. Luke Harrison came in for two innings, faced nine batters, struck out two, and gave up three hits. Jared Southard came in for Harrison and as Harrison was walking to the dugout, the crowd applauded him for this pitching.

At the end of the game after the stands were clear, there were two players alone in the dugout. Tristan Stevens and Ivan Melendez. Coach Pierce spent time with Stevens.

Ivan Melendez was in deep thought staring toward to the field. He looked introspective. Melendez then stood up, walked over picked up his bat and glove, shook it off, and walked out of the dugout and immediately started signing autographs for fans. It was a moment that told us more about Melendez's character and commitment to Texas fans.
