The Longhorn lost their last conference series of the year to TCU this weekend (1-5, 3-9, 3-0), finishing the season dead last in the league, ineligible for the conference tournament, and having set a new standard in offensive futility.

Texas hasn’t seen baseball this bad since 1997 and 1998 – understandable in Augie’s transition from Cliff Gustafson – but then you have to go back fifty seven years to 1956 and Bibb Falk to find another blip that’s comparable. To call this historically bad baseball is not hyperbole.

Texas Baseball Swept By Baylor Bears, Now Dead Last In Big 12

The hits keep coming for Texas athletics baseball. Well, figuratively. Actual hits are a rarity.

The Horns lost 6-2, 1-0, 5-2 to Baylor over the weekend, scoring a total of four runs over three games, and wasting good pitching before Baylor’s strong Game 3 at the plate.

The Longhorns have now lost three Big 12 games 1-0 this season.

The Horns, currently 22-20, and 5-13 in conference play, are dead last in the league, a full game behind Texas Tech. Texas Tech holds the crucial tie-breaker though. It’s really coming down to the wire!

Texas Baseball Loses Yet Another Big 12 Series

The Longhorns (21-17, 5-10 Big 12) lost 2 of 3 to West Virginia over the weekend, making the Horns 0 for 5 in Big 12 series this season. In other news, it appears that West Virginia actually fields a baseball team.

And Texas is in last place in the Big 12:

Big 12 Pct Streak Overall Pct Streak
Oklahoma 8-4 .667 L1 31-10 .756 W3
Kansas 9-6 .600 L1 24-15 .615 L1
Kansas State 7-5 .583 W1 28-13 .683 W1
Baylor 8-6 .571 L2 20-20 .500 L2
Oklahoma State 7-7 .500 L1 27-11 .711 L1
West Virginia 6-6 .500 W1 23-18 .562 W1
TCU 7-8 .467 W2 19-21 .475 W2
Texas 5-10 .333 L1 21-17 .553 L1
Texas Tech 5-10 .333 W1 18-22 .450 W1

The magic number for Texas baseball continues to be 3. When the Horns manage >3 runs – not the most herculean task in the college game – they’re a 15-2 ball club – which is pretty goddamn good, and that’s testament to a very strong Texas pitching staff…

…that’s being completely wasted.
