Pants Down, Horns Up: Texas Baseball Stays Hot in College Station
Anytime Texas and Texas A&M meet up, it’s a big deal. It’s not often that these two rivals square off but when they do, anything can happen. And by anything, I mean anything. Even if that includes a little nudity like we saw at Blue Bell Park in College Station on Tuesday night.
Streaking jokes aside, it was quite the game between the Longhorns and the Aggies. Texas entered the D1Baseball top 25 rankings this week after sweeping a top 25 Texas Tech team while Texas A&M fell out of the rankings after being swept by a ranked Tennessee team.
Texas got on the board early when Porter Brown knocked in a pair of runs in the first inning to give the Longhorns a 2-0 lead.
The Aggies quickly responded with a run of their own in the bottom of the inning as Jace LaViolette drove in run to make it a 2-1 game.
Both teams would cool off at the plate over the next several innings outside of Dylan Campbell’s RBI in the third inning to give Texas a 3-1 lead.
But then things got a bit weird in College Station because in the top of the fifth inning, a fan decided to run the field and pull his pants down. As he made his way to the centerfield wall, his rear end wasn’t the only thing he flashed because he also did the horns down sign as well.
Texas went on to score two more runs in the eighth inning thanks to Garret Guillemette getting hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and another RBI by Porter Brown. That would give Texas a three run lead going into the bottom of the eighth inning and they were able to hold on for a 5-3 win over the Aggies.
With their win, Texas now holds the nation’s longest winning streak in college baseball at 15 games. While this win was surely bittersweet for the Longhorns, they have a huge series ahead of them this weekend as they will face a top 25 Oklahoma State team on the road.
As for Texas A&M, their night ended about as well as the fan who ran across the field. He ended up getting caught immediately after jumping over the centerfield wall.
