OMAHA—Texas righthander Cole Green lasted just two innings today, allowing four runs on five hits—and it could have been worse, as Blake Dean popped up to end the second with runners on the corners. Green just wasn’t fooling the LSU hitters today, and the Longhorns will now hope Brandon Workman fares better.
It’s already 4-0 Tigers, and the Longhorns came up empty with a critical bases-loaded opportunity in the first, as Anthony Ranaudo struck out Kevin Keyes on a high fastball to end the threat. The ability to elevate his fastball really makes Ranaudo special. I’ve heard it from coaches all year: To have a chance against Ranaudo, you have to lay off the high heat, because his fastball has so much life up in the zone that it is extremely difficult to hit.
