Texas’ 4-1 win over Miami puts team one win from the super regionals

Dylan Campbell is having a historic season. The versatile outfielder extended his 37-game hitting streak with a two-run home run in the first inning. The moonshot put the Longhorns up early over the No. 9 Miami Hurricanes. It was effectively all Texas from there.

Lebarron Johnson Jr. pitched a complete game on Saturday night to secure the victory. Johnson allowed just one run to the vaunted Miami offense in 9 innings. While in control for the majority of the game, the redshirt sophomore made the pitches necessary to put Texas in the driver’s seat in the Coral Gables Region.

The current team has come a long way since its poor opening to the season. Though less talented than the 2022 squad, perhaps this group is playing with more poise than that team.

The Longhorns have controlled their first two ballgames of the tournament. Now they are one win away from the next round. Texas (2-0) will face the winner of Louisiana (1-1) and Miami (1-1) with a chance to advance on Sunday evening.
