Garrido becomes winningest coach of all time

AUSTIN, Texas -- Lukas Schiraldi tossed seven innings of one-hit ball, Ben Johnson homered and Mark Payton went 3-for-4 as No. 16 Texas beat Texas State 5-1 on Tuesday night. With the victory, Augie Garrido became the winningest coach in college baseball history.

Garrido, who now has 1,894 wins, surpassed Gordon Gillespie to become the winningest college baseball coach regardless of classification. Garrido had already claimed the Division I record in 2003.

Texas won its fifth consecutive game to improve to 20-6, marking its best 26-game start since opening 22-4 in 2005.

The Longhorns used a familiar formula, riding the arm of Schiraldi -- who has allowed just one run in his past 19 innings -- and an offense that took an early lead.

For the third consecutive game, Texas took a lead in the game's opening frame. Singles by Johnson and Payton and a four-pitch walk to C.J Hinojosa loaded the bases, and Collin Shaw drove in the first run on a fielder's choice. Tres Barrera followed with a two-out single up the middle to bring in Payton and give Texas a 2-0 lead. Texas is 10-0 when scoring in the first inning.

An inning later the Longhorns doubled their lead, with Payton hitting a bases-loaded sacrifice fly to right field to bring in the first, and C.J. Hinojosa doubling off the top of the wall in left to bring in the second.

Johnson added his second home run of the season in the fourth inning to make it 5-0 Texas.

In all, five different Longhorns contributed a RBI, while Payton led the way with three hits and Johnson and Zane Gurwitz had two. Texas finished with 10 hits, the fourth time in the past five games the Longhorns have recorded 10 or more.

Schiraldi, who pitched eight shutout innings in a 5-0 win against Dallas Baptist last week, cruised through the first seven innings, allowing just two base runners. A junior, Shiraldi struck out a season-high five and retired the side in order five times to improve to 4-1 with a 2.45 ERA.

The only run he was charged with came in the eighth, when he walked the first two batters he faced before being replaced by reliever Travis Duke. Texas State (15-9) went on to score on a sacrifice fly, but Duke got out of the inning with a strikeout. Morgan Cooper came on to pitch a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

Texas State starter Tyler Davenport (0-2) took the loss after surrendering four runs on five hits in 1.2 innings.
