No. 10 Texas vs. Baylor: Preview and pitching matchups

·1 min read

No. 10 Texas (27-14, 6-6) will host in-state foe Baylor (20-17, 4-8) for a crucial three-game set.

The Longhorns desperately need to get back on track in order to keep their NCAA tournament hosting hopes alive. Texas dropped a road series to Kansas State and split a midweek affair with Air Force.

Texas is still searching for answers in the bullpen. No relief pitcher on the roster has displayed the consistency needed to close out games late.

Baylor enters on a four-game winning streak and series victory over Kansas. Bears utility player Kyle Nevin is the reining Big 12 player of the week and leads the team with seven home runs.

Here is a look at the probable pitching matchups for the weekend series:

Friday: Texas LHP Pete Hansen (6-1, 2.78) vs. Baylor RHP Will Rigey (2-1, 4.42)

Saturday: Texas RHP Tristan Stevens (4-4, 4.37) vs. LHP Kobe Andrade (3-1, 3.20)

Sunday: Texas LHP Lucas Gordon (3-1, 2.74) vs. LHP Tyler Thomas (4-3, 1.97)
