OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- After leading 6-0, Arizona State couldn't stop a Texas rally and lost 10-6 to the Longhorns in the College World Series last night.
Cameron Rupp drove Mitchell Lambson's first pitch of the seventh inning over the right-field wall to give the Longhorns a 7-6 lead. He also hit a three-run homer to start Texas' comeback in the fourth.
No. 1-seeded Texas (48-14-1) is 2-0 in the CWS and has advanced to the Bracket 2 final on Friday. The Longhorns need one more win to reach next week's best-of-three championship round.
