Longhorn Win Sends Ags To Tourney Title Game

By  | 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Chance Wheeless went 4-for-4 and drove in two runs as Texas held off Nebraska 5-4 in the final game for both
teams in the Big 12 Conference baseball tournament.
Top-seeded Texas finished 2-1 in pool play and tied with Texas
A&M, but the Aggies advanced to tomorrow's title game based on a
head-to-head win over Texas earlier in the tournament.
Fifth-seeded Texas A&M will play the winner of tonight's late
game between seventh-seeded Oklahoma and sixth-seeded Baylor for
the tournament title.
Fourth-seeded Nebraska finished 1-2 in pool play.
Wheeless had a run-scoring single in the first inning and added
another in a two-run third inning for the Longhorns. In between,
Preston Clark hit his eighth home run of the season for Texas off
Nebraska starter Johnny Dorn.
Earlier today, Craig Stinson went 3-for-5 with a pair of
run-scoring singles to help lift Texas A-and-M to a 7-to-2 win over
Kansas State.
