The first three innings for Texas started like any other game. The Longhorns couldn't piece together any hits and left runners stranded on base. West Virginia right-handed pitcher Dan Dierdorff seemed to be settling into a rhythm and it looked like Texas would be in for another offensive struggle.
But something clicked in the Longhorn dugout in the fourth inning when the Texas batters got hot and scored five runs in the inning. Then another five runs in the fifth inning. The Longhorn's mindset seem to change and they were able to calm their critics and nerves.
"It's not so much about the hitting, it's about the tension," coach Augie Garrido said. "Today we busted through that in the fourth inning, then it set up the rest of the game."
Texas was nothing short of dominant in their 12-0 victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers in front of 6,747 fans at UFCU Disch-Falk Field on Saturday evening.
Texas was clicking on all cylinders...
