MAHA, Neb. (AP) - Cameron Rupp's second home run of the game
broke a seventh-inning tie, and Texas overcame a six-run deficit to
beat Arizona State 10-6 in the College World Series on Tuesday
Rupp drove Mitchell Lambson's first pitch of the seventh inning
over the right-field wall to give the Longhorns the lead. He also
hit a three-run homer to start Texas' comeback in the fourth.
No. 1-seeded Texas (48-14-1) is 2-0 in the CWS and has advanced
to the Bracket 2 final on Friday. The Longhorns need one more win
to reach next week's best-of-three championship round. They will
play either ASU (50-13) or North Carolina on Friday.
Freshman Taylor Jungmann (10-3) picked up his second win in
relief at the CWS, holding ASU to two hits in 5 2-3 shutout
innings. Lambson (9-4) took the loss.
