AUSTIN, Texas (AP)—Matt Vern and Matt Carpenter each hit home runs and TCU edged top national seed Texas 3-2 on Sunday to force a deciding third game in the super regional.

Vern hit a two-run shot in the fourth inning off Texas starter Cole Green to give the Horned Frogs (40-17) a quick lead. Carpenter made it 3-0 with his solo homer off Green (5-3) in the sixth.

Paul Gerrish (7-2) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings for the Horned Frogs.
