The Texas Longhorns defeated the LSU Tigers 5-1 in Game 2 of the College World Series final. The Longhorns picked up the first run of the game in the top of the first and the second run off of Preston Clark’s second-inning solo home run. LSU scored its only run of the night in the bottom of the inning. Then Russell Moldenhauer responded in the top of the third with a solo home run to give Texas a 3-1 edge. Back-to-back two-out doubles by Cameron Rupp and Connor Rowe respectively made it 4-1 Longhorns. Preston Clark was the next batter, and he drove in Rowe with an RBI single. Neither team scored for the rest of the contest, posting 13 consecutive scoreless half-innings.
Game 3 is tonight at 7 on ESPN. The winner will be crowned as the champions of the 2009 College World Series.
