OMAHA—Texas jumped out to a four-run lead through three innings Tuesday, and Taylor Jungmann took care of the rest. Jungmann, the Longhorns’ freshman righthander, was magnificent in a 5-1 win, striking out nine and allowing just five hits in his first career complete game. It was the first complete game in the College World Series since North Carolina’s Robert Woodard and Clemson’s Stephen Faris did it in the same game in 2006.
Texas survived its first elimination game of the 2009 College World Series. Now the national championship will be decided in a winner-take-all Game Three of the CWS Finals on Wednesday night.
More to come on Jungmann’s masterpiece after postgame.
