They finally did it. The Texas Longhorns played up to expectation in a series win over the No. 23 Kansas State Wildcats.

The offense was there for Texas all series. The Longhorns scored 33 runs in the three game series with a 21-run game two sandwiched between two six-run performances.

Texas shortstop Jalin Flores had one of the more impressive outputs in the series. Flores went 7-for-12 with seven RBI, two home runs and a walk. Cleanup hitter Max Belyeu hit well after Flores with six hits and five RBI in the three games.

With the series win, Texas moves into a second place tie with Kansas State in the Big 12 standings at 6-3 in Big 12 play. Oklahoma ranks first in the conference standings at 7-2 against league competition despite a 15-12 record overall.

The next stretch gives the Longhorns a chance to add wins against the Abilene Christian Wildcats (17-11) and BYU Cougars (11-14). BYU ranks last in the Big 12 with a 4-8 conference record. Abilene Christian is 1-3 vs. Big 12 opponents.
