Shepherd draws a leadoff walk to begin the fourth but is erased on a fielder's choice, then Hernandez grounds into a 6-4-3 double play to end the inning. Bettis, however, was in a three-ball count to two of the three batters.Tech gets a two-out double by Rindels, who steals third. But Rueda leaves him there on a line drive to short. The Red Raiders have now left a runner in scoring position in each of the first four innings. Can't waste those opportunities.4-2 Longhorns going to the fifth.gw

Bettis needs just five pitches to get through the top of the third, which probably adds another inning to how deep he can go.Tech goes almost as quietly, getting a two-out walk by Kieschnick and a passed ball, but Thennis flies to center to end the inning.Still 4-2 UT going to the fourth.gw

Bettis had a much better second inning, going thorugh the Longhorns in order.Tech took advantge by cutting the lead in half. A single by Doug Thennis and a bloop double by Monk Kreder set up a sacrifice fly by Taylor Ashby, and with two outs Willie Rueda singled to right to plate Kreder.4-2 UT going to the third.gw

Everyone was confident with Chad Bettis going on the hill today for the Red Raiders, but he apparently caught a dose of what everyone else had on Thursday.He got through the first two batters on a groundout and a caught stealing after he'd hit Travis Tucker. But a pair of two-out, two-run homers by Brandon Belt and Preston Clark suddenly put the Longhorns up 4-0. He continued to struggle by walking Tant Shepherd and Cameron Rupp before getting David Hernandez on a grounder.

A few loose ends from Friday.Tech is now 6-4 all-time against Texas when dropping the first game of a Big 12 series to the Longhorns. The previous five times the Red Raiders have won that second game, they are 4-0-1 in the third game to win the series.Two Tech players continued significant hitting streaks. Chris Hall tied his career high by extending his to 11 games, and Willie Rueda added to his career-high 9-game hit streak.Tech-Texas lineupsTexas1. Michael Torres ss2. Travis Tucker 2b3.

And what a difference a switch in pitching makes as the Red Raiders even the series with the Longhorns at a game apiece, 7-5.The bullpen was stellar today as James Leverton and Zach Stewart combine for 32/3 innings of relief, allowing just one run on two hits and two walks with three strikeouts.The UT bullpen explodes, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks in three innings, and that helped Tech take the lead and the win.

UT drew a leadoff walk by Danks off Leverton, who came back to get Belt on a fly out. Closer Zach Stewart came in and in four pitches got Clark to hit into an around-the-horn double play to end the inning.Tech took advantage by getting another run on back to back doubles by Kenworthy and Seefeld to open the inning.7-4 Red Raiders going to the eighth.gw

UT regained the lead at 4-3 in the top of the sixth on an RBI groundout by David Hernandez, but it didn't last long.Longhorn relievers Chance Ruffin, Stayton Thomas combined for four walks and a hit batter to open the bottom of the inning, allowing Tech to take a 5-4 lead. Tanner Rindels added another run on a bunt single with the base loaded to make it 6-4.Cole Green finally shut the rally down. After Willie Rueda bunted into a fielder's choice with the putout at home, Chris Hall bounced into an inning-ending double play for the second time tonight.

Finally, some things start going Tech's way.UT pushes its lead to 3-0 without ever getting the ball out of the infield thanks to two walks, a wild pitch and an RBI groundout. Ramos gets out of further damage but is at 102 pitches on the night.But Tech knots the game at 3 with a trio in the bottom of the fifth off Kasparek. A two-out home run by Tanner Rindels into the UT bullpen in right-center made it 3-2. Willie Rueda singled to left-center, stole second and scored on Chris Hall's dribbler through the right side of the infield.
