“Our coach (Mike Ruggiero) told us in the locker room that the loss showed us we could hang with any team in the U.S. right now,” Bener Uygun told the New York Post.

Uygun will start tonight’s game at 8PM on ESPN and ESPN3.com.

The manager’s son Daniel summed up the game. “We’re upset because that’s not the best we could play. We knew we can play better and we just have to come out and play our best. We made a lot of errors and didn’t hit well. We didn’t swing at the right pitches. We didn’t come out ready to play.”

Jordan Cardenas gave Texas an early lead with his solo shot to right in the bottom of the first.

The Southwest champions added three more runs in the second thanks to two outfield errors. Starting pitcher Tyler Vitt had singled to center in the inning and came around to score on a three-base error.

Playing in a steady rain, New Jersey broke through in the fourth after Anthony Scannelli’s single to make it 4-1. Cardenas relieved Vitt and walked D.J. Pico with the bases loaded to force in another run before retiring seven in a row.
