Texas beats Houston 4-0 to advance to CWS

Posted: Updated:
AUSTIN, Texas -

C.J Hinojosa drove in two runs and Parker French pitched six scoreless innings as Texas beat Houston 4-0 Saturday to win an NCAA super regional and advance to the College World Series.

Texas (43-19) is headed to Omaha for the 35th time, more than any other school, after missing the NCAA tournament altogether the previous two years. The Longhorns' last trip to the CWS was in 2011.

Texas scored four times in the fourth inning against Houston starter Aaron Garza (9-5). Hinojosa drove in two with a single to right-center, Collin Shaw had a sacrifice fly, and Kacy Clemens added an RBI single.

Mark Payton had a single and two walks for the Longhorns to extend his streak of reaching base to 101 games.

Josh Vidales had three singles for Houston (48-18), giving him six hits in the super regional. But the Cougars left 14 runners on base.
