TCU Stuns Texas With Sweep

Updated: Saturday, April 19 2014, 11:36 PM CDT


Nathan Thornhill pitched 6 2/3 solid innings and No. 6/4 Texas outhit TCU, but the Longhorns were unable to turn their opportunities into runs as they fell to the Horned Frogs 3-1 Saturday afternoon at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.
 
Texas outhit TCU nine to seven, but the Longhorns left eight runners on base in the game. Brooks Marlow and Mark Payton both had two-hit days, with Payton extending his reached-base streak to 80 games which leads the nation.
 
The Longhorns (30-11, 9-6 Big 12) led 1-0 for the first six innings until TCU (26-13, 10-5 Big 12) went ahead with two runs in the seventh and padded its lead with another run in the ninth. Texas had been a perfect 24-0 when holding a lead after six innings prior to Saturday’s loss.
 
Still, Texas had a chance to tie or win it in the bottom of the ninth. The Longhorns loaded the bases with one out on a walk to Collin Shaw and singles by Zane Gurwitz and Kacy Clemens. But TCU closer Riley Ferrell got Andy McGuire to ground into a 4-6-3 double play to end the game. It marked the third straight day Ferrell picked up a save for TCU.
 
Thornhill was excellent through five innings, allowing just two hits and working 1-2-3 innings in the second, fourth and fifth. The senior came in having allowed just one run in his previous 30 1/3 innings, but after pitching six scoreless ran into trouble in the seventh.
 
With runners on first and second, TCU’s Dylan Fitzgerald hit a run-scoring double on a 1-2 count to tie it up. After Thornhill struck out Keaton Jones for the second out of the inning, Garrett Crain singled up the middle to give TCU a 2-1 lead.
 
Texas had opportunities to extend its lead prior to TCU taking the lead in the seventh. The Longhorns had two on with one out in the fourth but were unable to push a run across, and failed to score after getting the leadoff man on in the fifth and sixth innings.
 
In the eighth, Texas seemed in position to tie it up after Marlow led off with a single and advanced to second on a wild pitch. But a groundout and strikeout gave TCU two outs, and a hard lineout from Tres Barrera ended the inning.
 
Thornhill (6-1), who matched a season high with six strikeouts, was saddled with his first loss of the season. TCU reliever Trey Teakell (2-0), who surrendered just one hit in 2 1/3 innings, picked up the win.
 
Texas returns to action on Tuesday when it plays host to UT Pan American at 6 p.m.
