No. 23 TCU evens series as No. 7 Texas falls to the Horned Frogs, 7-5

Faulty pitching, dormant bats, and uncharacteristic fielding mishaps led the No. 7 Texas Longhorns to drop game two of a three-game series to the No. 23 Texas Christian Horned Frogs, 7-5, at UFCU Disch-Falk Field on Saturday.

Texas burned through their ailing bullpen after a dismal start by right-hander Tristan Stevens forced the hand of head coach David Pierce after the second inning. Defensive challenges persisted throughout the game despite the Longhorns entering with a near-perfect team fielding percentage of .986.

The first and second innings spelled trouble for Texas defensively as the TCU offense relentlessly attacked the instability of Stevens.
