TCU bombs Texas 4-1, advances to first College World Series

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Aaron Schultz hit a two-run home run to help TCU beat Texas 4-1 Sunday, advancing to the College World Series for the first time in school history.

The Horned Frogs scored (51-12) the first run of the game in the bottom of the fifth when Jason Coats hit an RBI single off Brandon Workman (12-2) down the first-base line to score Taylor Featherson who hit a leadoff double and advanced to third on a throwing error.

Texas closer Chance Ruffin gave up the last three runs on two homers. Schultz sent Ruffins 2-2 slider over the left-field fence to put TCU up 3-0 in the seventh inning.

Kyle Winkler (12-2) gave up no runs and five hits with five strikeouts in 7 2-3 innings for the Horned Frogs. Texas (50-13) avoided the shutout in the ninth when pinch-hitter Paul Montalbano scored from second on an error by Jerome Pena.
