AUSTIN, Texas — Trey Faltine drove in three runs with a pair of doubles and Cam Williams hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning after walking his first four times up and scoring three times as No. 2 overall seed Texas breezed into the College World Series with a 12-4 victory over USF on Sunday, sweeping the Austin super region.
The Bulls (31-30), playing in their first-ever super region, took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first on Jarrett Eaton’s two-run bases-loaded single, but Jake Sullivan was thrown out at home trying to score from first on the play.
The Longhorns (47-15) answered with four in the top of the second with Faltine and Silas Ardoin delivering run-scoring doubles.
Faltine’s second double drove in two in the fourth to make it 6-2. Texas scored without a hit in the fifth, using four walks and a hit batter to score two runs.
Tristan Stevens (11-3) allowed four runs on eight hits in 5-2/3 innings to get the win.
