Incarnate Word

STANFORD, Calif. — The No. 12 Texas Longhorns lost 9-0 to No. 6 Stanford Sunday at Sunken Diamond in a weather-shortened game.

The majority of the game was played under poor conditions and included a 30-minute lightning delay. The game was eventually called in the seventh inning due to field conditions.

Texas and Stanford traded scoreless frames through the first three innings. Coy Cobb struck out two batters through the first three scoreless innings.

As the rain started to fall in the bottom of the fourth inning, the game started to turn in favor of the Cardinal. Stanford scored eight runs in the inning on just three hits. The inning was marred by seven walks and an error.

Stanford added another run on a solo home run in the fifth inning.

At the start of the seventh inning, the game went into a delay. The game resumed but only half an inning was played before heavy rain began falling.

Texas hosts Texas Southern on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. before beginning Big 12 play against Texas Tech at UFCU Disch-Falk Field next weekend.
