Kent State shocks Texas
Lyon's sixth-inning grand slam powers Golden Flashes to win
AUSTIN, Texas -- David Lyon hit a grand slam to key Kent State’s six-run sixth inning and the Golden Flashes stunned Texas 7-5 in the Austin Regional on Saturday night.
Andrew Chafin (8-1) allowed four hits and four runs in 8 2-3 innings for Kent State (45-15).
Texas ace Taylor Jungmann (13-1) gave up seven earned runs and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings for the Longhorns (44-16). The last time he gave up that many runs was on March 26, 2010, against Texas Tech in Lubbock.
Jungmann’s 15-game winning streak—longest in the nation—also ended.
Kevin Lusson hit a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the ninth for Texas. With runners at the corners, Tant Shepherd had a chance to give Texas the lead, but he popped out to end it.
Kent State coach Scott Stricklin was tossed in the fifth after the umpire called Derek Toadvine out for running inside the first-base line.
