TCU tops Texas 3-0

Finnegan Dazzles as TCU takes game one in Austin

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

TCU has picked the right time to get hot. Last night Brandon Finnegan's shutdown performance made it 9 out of the last 10 for the Horned Frogs after an underwhelming start to the 2014 season.

Through his 8 scoreless innings of work, Finny fanned 11 Longhorns, allowing only 4 hits and one walk. Riley Ferrell was also lights out and picked up his 7th save on the year.

The Frogs got all the runs they needed in the fifth inning that began with a lead-off double by Jerrick Suiter. A perfect sacrifice bunt by Keaton Jones led to an RBI single by Garrett Caine that put the Frogs up 2-0. Cody Jones collected an RBI himself to make the game 3-0 in favor of the Frogs.

But the night was all Brandon Finnegan. The junior Southpaw's 11 strikeouts, mostly thanks to his filthy slider, made it 83 for Finnegan on the year, which ranks 2nd nationally.
