Perhaps even more remarkable than no. 1 Texas sweeping no. 5 Stanford this weekend was the manner in which the series’ 3rd game was won ; a lead-off inside the park HR by sophmore CF Drew Stubbs (above, right) to break a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the 9th. This was Stubbs’ 2nd inside the park home run in two days.
Texas ran their record to 11-0, their best start to a season since 1995.
The past week saw two notable Texas debuts, RF/1B Thomas Incaviglia (a transfer from Oklahoma State and nephew of former big leaguer Pete) and freshman pitcher Jordon Street, the younger brother of former Longhorns relief standout/current Oakland prospect Hutson.
