For the first time in four years, Texas can claim a World Series champion.
Brandon Workman, who pitched at Texas from 2008-10, is a member of a Boston Red Sox team that wrapped up the World Series with a win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt’s championship in 2014 had been the most-recent title for an ex-Longhorn.
Workman was not on Boston’s World Series roster, but he did pitch three times during the postseason. In 43 appearances during the regular season, the right-handed reliever was 6-1 with a 3.27 ERA.
The 30-year-old Workman also won a ring with Boston in 2013. He threw three times in that World Series.
