OMAHA, NE – The Texas Longhorns stay alive in the 2014 CWS with strong pitching from starter Parker French and reliever Travis Duke. They combined to hold the now eliminated Louisville Cardinals to just one run on four hits. For Louisville, four fielding errors played a big role in the 4-1 loss.
Texas scored first in the third inning when Ben Johnson’s sacrifice fly allowed Zane Guritz to score. The Longhorns added runs in the fourth and fifth innings, both thanks to fielding errors by the Cardinals. Louisville did get on the board in the eighth, but any hopes of a rally ended when reliever Travis Duke entered the game and retired the final five batters.
Kevin Kugler and John Bishop called the action from TD Ameritrade Park.
