The 16-21 Central Arkansas Bears made the trek to Disch Falk Field to meet the Longhorns in a midweek game last night. Dillon Peters got the start for Texas and saw 3.2 innings of work, allowing one unearned run on two hits during his stay on the mound. Austin Dicharry, Kirby Bellow, John Curtiss, and Corey Knebel all provided relief, holding the Bears to only two runs on the night.
The Texas batters managed 11 hits throughout the evening, scoring four runs in the process. Mark Payton (2 for 3) and Alex Silver (2 for 4) paced the offense and scored one run apiece. After trading the lead with the Bears, Texas took the lead in the seventh and held on to it, with John Curtiss earning the W in a 4-2 victory. The Longhorns return to action this Friday with a split series against the Aggies of Texas A&M, traveling to College Station for the Friday game, and then hosting the Aggies on Saturday and Sunday.
