Big 12 Scoreboard

After being named a NCAA Regional host on Sunday, the West Virginia baseball team learned who it will be competing against on Monday afternoon.

PITTSBURGH — West Virginia starting pitcher Nick Snyder ascended the mound at PNC Park on Tuesday night and delivered a performance that was all-too familiar to the Mountaineers this season.

Although two of the Big 12 Conference’s pitching leaders — Alek Manoah of WVU and Nick Lodolo of TCU — ascended the mound at Monongalia County Ballpark on Friday evening, it was offense that played the largest factor in the game’s result.

Coming off of two straight wins, the No. 17 WVU baseball team was unable to pick up the sweep as the Texas Longhorns fit in a 10-2 win on Sunday afternoon.

Similar to Friday evening when West Virginia quarterback Will Grier and offensive lineman Yodny Cajuste were selected back-to-back, the Mountaineers continued their string of draft picks on Saturday afternoon.

After no West Virginia players were drafted in the first-round of the 2019 NFL Draft on Thursday night, two Mountaineers heard their names called in the third round on Friday — Will Grier and Yodny Cajuste.
