TEAM NOTES

  • Recent Trends: Following Texas' 14-2 outburst against UT-San Antonio on Tuesday, head coach Augie Garrido said, "We are hitting better than ever, so we are going to be thankful for what we got and work on what we don't got."
  • Long Ball: College baseball is using a new ball which is expected to travel approximately 20 feet further. The main difference is the height of the seams; the new balls feature lower seams.
  • Detail Stats: Texas' 20 hits against UTSA were the most for the team since May 30, 2009 in a 25-inning game against Boston College. … Catcher Tres Barrera went 5-for-6 against the Roadrunners and carries eight hits in 20 at-bats into the series with Minnesota.
