Horns pitchers thriving
Congratulations go out to two Texas pitchers for outstanding weekend performances. Huston Street secured his first Major League victory while pitching two innings of scoreless relief for the Oakland Athletics on Sunday. Street struck out three during his second strong appearance of the season. This time last year Street was pitching for the Horns. This year’s Horns are currently ranked #1 in the country and completed a weekend sweep of rival Oklahoma. The big star of the weekend series was freshman pitcher, Adrian Alaniz. Alaniz threw only the nineteenth no hitter in Texas baseball history in a 4-0 victory on Saturday over the Sooners. The no hitter was only the third in Big 12 history, the first by a Texas player since 2000, and the first by a Texas freshman since Greg Swindell in 1984. Texas now sits at 32-6 overall and 9-5 in Big 12 play.
