Longhorns Shut Out Oklahoma to Even Series

Updated: Saturday, April 6 2013, 10:12 PM CDT

Junior left-hander Dillon Peters (Indianapolis, Ind./Cathedral HS) threw seven no-hit innings Saturday before allowing a leadoff double in the eighth as the Texas Longhorns shut out the No. 13 Oklahoma Sooners, 1-0, to even its Big 12 series. Freshman designated hitter Ben Johnson’s RBI single in the fifth provided the only run for the Longhorns in front of a season-high 6,902 fans at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.
 
Texas improved to 17-12 overall and 3-5 in Big 12 play while Oklahoma fell to 26-6 overall, 6-2 in conference. Peters finished with the two-hitter, striking five without allowing a walk. Dillon Overton (6-2) took the loss for the Sooners after going the distance with eight innings and giving up a run on five hits with three walks and six strikeouts.
 
With one out in the Texas fifth, freshman left fielder Mark Gottsacker singled to center before Brooks Marlow drew a walk. Johnson then hit a single to center to score Gottsacker.
 
Kolbey Carpenter broke up Peters’ no-hit big with a double to left in the eighth. Hector Lorenzana then hit a chopper back to Peters, who made a heads-up play and caught Carpenter in a rundown for the key out. Hunter Haley popped up to Peters on a bunt attempt before Garrett Carey singled to center for runners at first and second. UT closer Corey Knebel relieved Peters and struck out pinch-hitter Anthony Hermelyn swinging to end the threat.
 
Knebel picked up his seventh save of the season and the 35th of his career with 1 1/3 perfect innings with two strikeouts. He needs six saves to tie Huston Street (2002-04) for the school and Big 12 record for career saves.
 
The series concludes tomorrow at 2 p.m. with a telecast on Longhorn Network and radio on AM 1300 The Zone. Gametracker live stats will be available on TexasSports.com with live Twitter updates @Texas_Baseball.
 
Notes: Texas recorded a shutout over Oklahoma for the first time since a 5-0 shutout in Austin on April 29, 2011…this was only the second time in the all-time series that the game finished with a 1-0 score as Oklahoma won by a 1-0 score in Austin on May 10, 1910…this is the seventh time in 27 games since 2005 that Texas has shut out Oklahoma…Corey Knebel has not allowed a run in 11 appearances, dating back to March 5 against UTPA…during that span, Knebel has registered three wins and four saves (14 2/3 innings, three hits, five walks, 22 strikeouts)…this was the second time this season that Dillon Peters allowed only two hits in a start this season of five innings or more (5 2/3 innings on March 9 against UC Santa Barbara)…freshman shortstop C.J Hinojosa extended his hitting streak to nine games.Longhorns Shut Out Oklahoma to Even Series
