Texas 43-13-1 ended the marathon game with a RBI single by Travis Tucker. "Every inning, we felt like we had a chance to win it," said Tucker. "And every inning, we thought we were going to win it. It ended up happening in the 25th." Austin Wood, one of the Longhorns relief pitchers threw 13 innings during the marathon game Saturday night.
