June 07, 2009


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Matt Vern and Matt Carpenter each hit home runs and TCU edged top national seed Texas 3-2 on Sunday to force a deciding third game tonight in the super regional.

TCU is coached by Smithsburg High School graduate Jim Schlossnagle.

Vern hit a two-run shot in the fourth inning off Texas starter Cole Green to give the Horned Frogs (40-17) a quick lead. Carpenter made it 3-0 with his solo homer off Green (5-3) in the sixth.

Texas (45-14-1) got within a run on Preston Clark's RBI single in the seventh and Brandon Belt's run-scoring single in the eighth.

Paul Gerrish (7-2) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings for the Horned Frogs.

The winner of tonight's game will advance to the College World Series.
