• Corey Knebel appears to have grasped the role of closer for the Longhorns. After getting saddled with the loss in UT’s 14-inning, 5-4 loss to Hawaii, Knebel has rebounded to post a 2-0 record with six saves in the next 10 appearances. In the last 10 appearances, the northpaw has registered 21.0 scoreless innings, scattering eight hits and two walks while striking out 24.
• For his career, Taylor Jungmann is 14-0 with a 1.65 ERA in his 21 starts at UFCU Disch-Falk Field and the Longhorns have gone 21-0 when he throws the first pitch at home. Last season, Texas finished 10-0 in Jungmann’s 10 starts at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. He went 6-0 with a 1.44 ERA in his 10 starts at home. He held opponents to a .181 batting average and fanned 92 batters, while walking just 21 in 75.0 innings. He earned victories over New Mexico, Stanford, Oklahoma State, Louisiana Tech, Rice and TCU. Texas also earned wins with Jungmann getting “no decisions” against Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Texas A&M in games which all went extra innings.
• The Longhorns have seven shutouts on the season, the most of any team in the Big 12 Conference. Taylor Jungmann was the starting pitcher in five of the shutouts, including two complete-game shutouts. Sam Stafford and Hoby Milner were the starting pitchers in the other two shutouts. Corey Knebel has appeared in relief in three of the shutouts and Josh Urban and Stayton Thomas each appeared in relief in two of the shutouts. Kirby Bellow, Kendal Carrillo and Keifer Nuncio have each appeared in one shutout.
