HOUSTON (AP) - Austin Wood pitched 8 2-3 strong innings and Kyle
Russell hit his third home run of the tournament as Texas rallied
for a 4-3 win over St. John's in the losers bracket of the NCAA
regional in Houston Sunday afternoon.
Texas picked up its 3,000th win with the victory, joining
Fordham as the only school with at least 3,000 wins.
Texas (39-21) moves on to play top-seeded Rice for the regional
championship this evening. If Texas wins, a final game would have
to be played tomorrow night.
St. John's (42-16), which had beaten Texas 2-1 in the first
round of the tournament Friday, was eliminated.
