Texas beats Miami to claim its regional title in the NCAA baseball tournament

Coral Gables, Florida – Jared Thomas is new to this.

As a freshman at Texas, Thomas had never celebrated a regional championship finish in the NCAA baseball tournament before. Fellow freshman Jalen Flores said the team’s veterans told the newcomers earlier this year that the Longhorns don’t hold back until Omaha.

However, Thomas did not recall receiving this directive.

So how did he handle the end of Sunday night’s 10-6 win over Miami, which clinched the Coral Gables Regional?

“I kind of went with the flow,” said Thomas, who started at first base. “I saw Peyton (Powell) kind of running around and doing what we usually do after the game, so I went with that. I didn’t know if we were playing or not.”
