Walk-Off Winner: Hinojosa a Hero Again As Texas Beats UC Santa Barbara in 9th

Updated: Saturday, March 9 2013, 10:45 PM CST

Freshman shortstop C.J Hinojosa (Spring/Klein Collins HS) drilled a two-out RBI double to right in the bottom of the ninth Saturday as the Texas Longhorns used a 3-2 walk-off victory to earn the series win against the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. The Longhorns (9-5) have won three straight and look for the series sweep tomorrow in a noon start against the Gauchos (8-6).
 
It was Hinojosa’s second walk-off hit of the season (Feb. 23 vs. Nebraska).
 
Ty Marlow (Giddings/Giddings HS) earned his first collegiate win with 3 1/3 scoreless innings in relief, allowing only one hit. Dillon Peters had another strong start for the Longhorns with 5 2/3 innings, giving up only two runs (one earned) on two hits with two walks and four strikeouts.
 
Jackson Morrow led off the UCSB second with a double and later scored from third on a sacrifice fly by designated hitter Robby Nesovic. The Longhorns tied it in the third when Erich Weiss belted his 12th career triple to left center and scored on Mark Payton’s RBI double.
 
Brooks Marlow tripled to lead off the Texas fifth, but UCSB starter Justin Jacome held off the Horns to keep it a 1-1 score. Jacome finished with the no-decision, going 6 2/3 innings and allowing two runs on four hits with two walks and five strikeouts.
 
Peters walked back-to-back Gauchos with two outs in the sixth before giving way to Marlow. Nesovic then cranked an 0-2 pitch from Marlow to left for a double to put the Gauchos ahead, 2-1. Texas answered in the bottom half of the seventh with two outs. Weston Hall drew a walk, followed by a walk to pinch-hitter Matt Moynihan. After Hall and Moynihan executed a double steal, Weiss hit a slow grounder to third and beat out the throw by a step for the infield single as Hall scored.
 
With two outs in the ninth and Weiss at first, Payton drew a walk to get to Hinojosa. With two strikes against the freshman, he then belted a double to deep right for the win.
 
The series concludes tomorrow at noon. The game will be broadcast live on Longhorn Network with audio on AM 1300 The Zone. Gametracker live stats will be available on TexasSports.com with live Twitter updates @Texas_Baseball.
