Texas Baseball Finishes Historically Brutal Season

Updated: Saturday, May 18 2013, 10:12 PM CDT

Junior right-hander Nathan Thornhill scattered six hits in a complete-game shutout Sunday as the Texas Longhorns shut out the TCU Horned Frogs, 3-0, in the Big 12 series finale. Texas finishes the 2013 season with a 27-24 overall record and 7-17 mark in Big 12 play.
 
It was Thornhill’s third complete game of the season as he allowed just one walk while striking out five. He would finish the game by retiring 13 of the last 14 batters he faced, retiring the side in order in the sixth, eighth and ninth innings.
 
Freshman shortstop C.J Hinojosa went 3-for-4 with two RBI while Brooks Marlow scored twice in the leadoff spot with a 2-for-4 game and two doubles.
 
Marlow would lead off the first and third innings with a double, scoring on Hinojosa’s single both times. Jacob Felts added an RBI single in the first as the Horns averted the series sweep.
 
Junior right fielder Mark Payton was not in the lineup today after spraining his wrist in last night’s game while making a catch. Payton had made 134 consecutive starts for the Longhorns, dating back to the 2011 season.
 
Notes: Mark Payton finished the season as the Longhorns’ leading hitter with a .393 batting average…Payton also led the team in doubles (11) and triples (eight)…Payton and C.J Hinojosa tied as the leader in RBI (29)…Weston Hall and Taylor Stell finished tied for the team lead in stolen bases (11)…Dillon Peters led all UT pitchers in wins (six) and had the lowest ERA (1.97) among starters…Nathan Thornhill led the team with 60 strikeouts…Corey Knebel finished the season with nine saves…the Longhorns finished with a .974 fielding percentage and committed only one error in the final five games of the season…this is the fourth time in the past five years that the Texas pitching staff has recorded a staff ERA below 3.00 as UT pitchers had a 2.53 ERA this season.Texas Baseball Finishes Historically Brutal Season
