HOUSTON -- Jared Gayhart and Jimmy Comerota each drove in two runs to help lead Rice to a 7-4 victory over Texas in the championship game of the NCAA Regional in Houston tonight.
The Owls broke a 4-4 tie in the seventh with back-to-back RBI singles by Comerota and Diego Seastrunk. Comerota then scored from
third on a groundout by John Hale.
Rice, which beat Texas two out of three games in the regular
season, will play host to a super regional next weekend.
