over six innings tonight and top-seeded Texas earned its first trip
to the College World Series since 2005 with a 5-2 win over TCU.
Kevin Keyes homered in the first inning for the Longhorns whose

up his eighth win of the season before being replaced by Austin
Wood in the bottom of the seventh.
Texas led 3-0 after the first inning behind an RBI triple by
Brandon Belt and Keyes' solo shot.
Texas scored two more runs in the fourth. Keyes led off the
inning with a double and scored on Cameron Rupp's double off Horned

Wood pitched 12 1/3 scoreless innings in relief in Texas'
25-inning 3-2 win over Boston College a week earlier.
Wood came in with a 5-0 lead and gave up two runs before he was
pulled for Chance Ruffin with one out in the ninth.
