TCU gets on the board, but trails 5-1

June, 8, 2009
AUSTIN, Texas -- TCU bunched three two-out hits for its first run of the game in the eighth inning.

But the rally might have come too late as Texas still holds a 5-1 lead over the Horned Frogs.

Texas ace reliever Austin Wood hasn't looked sharp tonight, allowing a double to Hunt Woodruff and back-to-back singles by Brance Rivera and Corey Steglich that accounted for TCU's first run in the game.

Earlier in the inning, Wood escaped more damage when he coaxed Jason Coats to ground into a double play after leadoff hitter Chris Ellington had reached on an error by Texas first baseman Brandon Belt.

That double play was Texas' third of the past four innings.
