Texas used the long ball to regain its lead against Southern Miss, as Russell Moldenhauer's solo home run in the sixth inning pushed the Longhorns back on top, 3-2 lead.

In the seventh inning, in order to add some insurance, Texas went back to basics.

Brandon Loy's leadoff single in the bottom of the seventh sparked some classic Augie Garrido-style small ball that doubled the Longhorns' advantage over Southern Miss to 4-2.

Loy advanced to second on Cameron Rupp's sacrifice bunt. After Todd McInnis struck out Preston Clark, Connor Rowe popped a single into shallow left field to score Loy.

Rowe's hit spelled the end of the evening for McInnis, as right-hander Scott Copeland heads to the mound to keep Southern Miss within firing distance.
