Elder gave up two more runs in the sixth inning, a two-run bomb to Chris Ceballos, a shot over the left centerfield fence. 

UT trailed 4-1 at that point.

The Longhorns rallied in the bottom half of that frame, trimming the lead to a single run, 4-3.

There were two bright spots in the loss for Texas though.

Pitcher Kamron Fields struck out three Wildcats in one-and-a-third innings of work, and UT outfielder Tate Shaw extended his hitting streak to eight games.
