Defensive struggles haunt Texas in 12-2 loss to Vanderbilt

It was a weekend to forget in Arlington for Texas after falling in all three games to SEC competition. The Longhorns had more errors than hits in Sunday’s 12-2 loss to Vanderbilt.

Vanderbilt jumped out to 8-0 lead in the second inning after four errors by the Texas middle infield. The Doors capitalized on the extra outs by launching a grand slam into the right-field seats.

Strikeouts continue to kill the Texas offense as the Longhorns look a step behind the fastball in the batters’ box. Eric Kennedy would hit a home run late but the game was already well out of hand.

Texas started the 2021 season with similar struggles at Globe Life Field before having an excellent season. The Longhorns hope to see improvement in a hurry in all aspects of the game.
