Texas baseball game goes off air after Longhorn Network production truck fire

Saturday’s Texas Longhorns baseball game against the Kansas Jayhawks was not able to be aired past the seventh inning on the Longhorn Network due to their production truck catching fire. Texas won the game by a score of 11-6 and secured a series sweep in the process.

Texas (39-17, 14-10 Big 12) has won eight of nine games since getting swept by Oklahoma State on the last weekend of April. Kansas (20-35, 4-20), meanwhile, ends the 2022 season on Saturday with Baylor locked into the eighth and final seed for next week’s Big 12 Tournament at Arlington’s Globe Life Field.

Entering the bottom of the seventh inning, Texas trailed by a score of 5-2. With the bases loaded, redshirt senior Skyler Messinger hit a grand slam on what was senior day to give the Longhorns their first lead of the ballgame. Texas hit five home runs in the win, and Jared Southard earned the win on the mound in relief.
