No World Series for the Horned Frogs

Texas beats TCU 5-2 to earn CWS berth

Freshman Taylor Jungmann allowed two hits over six innings Monday night and top-seeded Texas earned its first trip to the College World Series since 2005 with a 5-2 win over TCU.

Kevin Keyes homered in the first inning for the Longhorns (46-14-1), who have won six national championships. Jungmann struck out five and walked one in picking up his eighth win of the season before being replaced by Austin Wood in the bottom of the seventh.

Texas led 3-0 after the first inning behind an RBI triple by Brandon Belt and Keyes' solo shot.

Texas scored two more runs in the fourth. Keyes led off the inning with a double and scored on Cameron Rupp's double off Horned Frogs reliever Eric Marshall.
