Texas combines on two-hit shutout vs. Oklahoma State

  Freshman Zane Gurwitz went 3-for-4 for Texas.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Parker French and Chad Hollingsworth combined to pitch a two-hit shutout, Zane Gurwitz went 3-for-4 at the plate, and No. 10 Texas defeated No. 9 Oklahoma State 3-0 Friday night at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.

Texas made up ground in the Big 12 race with the win, improving to 32-11 overall and 10-6 in the league – just a game behind the first-place Cowboys, who fell to 29-13 overall and 11-5 in the conference.

The Longhorns won thanks to dominant outings from French, who allowed just one hit in six innings, and Hollingsworth, who allowed just one hit in three innings. Texas played error-free defense behind them and received several stellar plays from second baseman Brooks Marlow.

Gurwitz, meanwhile, recorded his 13th multiple-hit game of the year which is second on the team to Mark Payton's 15. He gave Texas an insurance run with an RBI single in the eighth inning to make it 2-0, and then scored a run on a Jacob Felts single to make it 3-0.

C.J Hinojosa went 2-for-3 and accounted for two of Texas' three runs. Hinojosa gave Texas its first leadoff man on base in the fourth and scored the only run the Longhorns would need when Felts hit a fielder's choice RBI with the bases loaded.

French (5-3) made quick work of the Cowboys early on, retiring the side in order in the first, second and fourth innings. He allowed just two runners to reach scoring position in his six innings of work, but worked out of trouble both times.

Coming on to slam the door was Hollingsworth, who extended his scoreless-inning streak to 11.2. He retired the first six batters he faced to quickly work the seventh and eighth innings, and after allowing a leadoff single in the ninth struck out two to end the game. Hollingsworth picked up his first career save while lowering his ERA to 1.03 this year.

Oklahoma State's Jon Perrin (5-3), who allowed one run on four hits and six walks in 4.1 innings, took the loss.

Payton, who drew three walks in the game, extended his reached-base streak to 82 games. First baseman Kacy Clemens also drew three walks on the evening.
