The Longhorns added two more runs in the second aided by two triples.
The Vandy offense struggled to get on track all day getting shutout for the third time this season. The Commodores put runners on the bases in six of the nine innings but failed to advance a runner past second base. John Norwood and Tyler Campbell combined for four of the Dores' six hits.
Texas starter Nate Thornhill was outstanding with eight scoreless innings to earn the win. The right-hander scattered six hits and struck out five. Ferguson was pinned with the loss allowing two runs on one hit with two walks and two strikeouts while recording two outs. Miller turned in a career-long outing, tossing 7.1 innings and allowing two runs on four hits with a career-best eight strikeouts.
The Commodores and Longhorns will play an elimination game tomorrow with first pitch to be determined. The two teams will play again at 7 p.m. on Saturday.
