Against UNLV, McCulloch posted a career-best seven innings while fanning a career-high eight batters in a 12-3 win in the series finale. In two starts and one relief appearance on the season, the sophomore rightie is 1-0 with a 4.85 ERA. Cody and Boone also sport 1-0 records, with each of their wins coming in the season-opening series vs. San Diego State. Both lefty Cody and rightie Boone got no-decisions in their starts vs. the Rebels this past weekend. Cody was pulled in the top of the fifth of Saturday's game as UNLV jumped to a 5-1 lead before Texas rallied for the win with a four-run bottom of the ninth. Boone went five innings in the series opener, surrendering six hits and one earned run and left with a 3-1 lead, but McCulloch, in his one inning of relief, gave up the tying runs, taking Boone out of the decision. Stewart picked up relief wins in both games with 2-2/3 innings of hitless work. The senior righthander is 3-0 on the season and has yet to give up a run. Cox also has a 0.00 ERA and picked up his first save of the season in Friday's win.
On the offensive side, familiar names top the hit list. SS Seth Johnston is batting .448 with a homer and eight RBI. C/1B Taylor Teagarden is close behind with his .421 mark (2 HRs, including a Saturday blast vs. the Rebels, and 9 RBI), followed by CF Drew Stubbs at .387, LF Carson Kainer at .364 (with a team-leading 10 RBI) and DH Will Crouch at .350. Stubbs and Johnston have hit safely in all seven games this season.
