After the bullpen blew a 5-1 lead thanks to a four-run eighth inning by the Nevada Wolfpack to steal a win from left-hander Pete Hansen, the No. Texas Longhorns came through in the bottom of the inning with a double from right fielder Douglas Hodo III and a double from second baseman Mitchell Daly to score the winning run at UFCU Disch-Falk Field on Wednesday. The victory was the 10th in a row for the Longhorns, the program’s longest streak since winning 21 consecutive games in 2010.
With Askew, Beard is getting a former national recruit who was ranked as the No. player nationally in the 2020 recruiting class out of powerhouse high school Mater Dei in California. Like every other aspect of Kentucky basketball last season, particularly the win-loss record, things didn’t go as planned for Askew in Lexington.
Tanner Witt's stuff was overpowering tonight. (@TexasBaseball) The No. 3 Longhorns (26-8) have enjoyed a lot of midweek home wins that allowed them to put the game in cruise control and utilize their depth.
