Texas ace Taylor Jungmann silenced TCU bats, while the Longhorn offense broke out for 12 early runs, as the Austinites cruised to an easy Game Two win. Gil Lebreton recounted the day:
[TCU coach Jim] Schlossnagle was asked what he said to the Frogs after the Longhorns’ seven-run fifth inning.
“What am I going to say?” Schlossnagle asked in return. “We were getting our rear ends beaten.”
But as Schlossnagle quickly added, Texas’ staff ace, sophomore Taylor Jungmann, had more than a little to do with that.
“For the first three innings,” the TCU coach said, “I don’t know if he ever threw his breaking ball for a strike. But we swung at it a lot.”
The rubber match is Sunday at 3:00 P.M. in Austin.
