Texas eliminates Miami from NCAA
TEMPE, Ariz. The Miami Redhawks beat Creighton earlier in the day but were overpowered by Texas, 11-1, and eliminated from the NCAA baseball tournament Saturday night.
Texas freshman Ray Clark threw a four-hitter and struck out 10 in his first career complete game. Tom Yost's homer with two outs in the ninth inning spoiled his shutout bid.
The RedHawks (40-22) had eliminated Creighton 6-3. They lost to Arizona State 15-7 on Friday.
Brady Nori, Luke Reinhart, Zach Schmidt and Bobby Barnes all had RBI singles in the seventh inning against Creighton.
Miami freshman starter Chris Leonard (7-1) scattered eight hits through 7 1/3 innings with Billy Kieninger finishing up for his first save of the season.
Chris has been our most consistent pitcher of late, Miami coach Tracy Smith said. Nothing bothers him. For a freshman, he has great poise.
