Texas Baseball goes 0-2 at the Big 12 Tournament

Fresh off their best weekend of baseball on the season, Texas entered the Big 12 Tournament as the No. 1 seed playing for a chance to host a regional in the NCAA Tournament.

The Longhorns are going home early from the Big 12 tourney after going 0-2 with losses to Kansas and Kansas State. Texas looked lifeless at times in both games, giving flashbacks to the horrendous season opener in Arlington.

A seventh-inning grand slam doomed Texas in game one against Kansas. The Longhorns fell 6-3 despite a two-homer day from Jack O’Dowd.

In game two Texas’ bats were sliced all game by Kansas State pitching. Lebarron Johnson delivered a solid start to keep Texas in the game before the bullpen gave up a 5 spot in the seventh.

Texas now awaits their fate for the NCAA Tournament. Expect the Longhorns to be traveling to a regional as a No. 2 seed when the bracket is announced on Monday.
