Mizzou Baseball, Dylan Leach Walk-off Texas At College Baseball Showdown

Missouri and Texas brought the drama during the second game of the second day of the College Baseball Showdown.

With the game tied at 5-5 in the bottom of the ninth inning, Arkansas transfer Dylan Leach provided the game-winning double to hand Mizzou it’s first win of the season and drop the Longhorns to 0-2. 

With Arkansas fans calling the hogs during his at-bat, Leach doubled down the left field line to drive in Hank Zeisler.

Missouri Baseball Happy To Have Arkansas Transfer Dylan Leach 

Leach, a junior, started 16 games for the Razorbacks, who made the College World Series in 2022. Leach was a standout defender behind the plate with a .988 fielding percentage and committed just two errors in 169 tries.

“He’s kind of come in and established himself as a leader,” Bieser said earlier this month. 

“He’s got the experience from being there in Arkansas (and) the College World Series and being in that type of venue. He’s been outstanding for us and really meshing in with an entirely new group.

“We’re happy he’s here and he’s doing really well.”

Texas Baseball Is One Loss Away From Repeating 2021 College Baseball Showdown Record

Texas will play Vanderbilt on Sunday morning trying to avoid its second 0-3 College Baseball Showdown record. 

But maybe going 0-3 won’t be so bad. Texas coach David Pierce used the 0-3 record in 2021 to motivate his team all season as “Remember the Arlington” became the club’s slogan, Pierce said. 

Vanderbilt beat Oklahoma State 11-9 in the first game of the Day 2 at the College Baseball Showdown.
