#26 Texas Tech Baseball Team Surprises #10 Arizona State With 8-4 Win
Talk about making a statement. The Texas Tech baseball team captured a huge win last night, beating #10 Arizona State 8 to 4 in Tempe, Arizona. It was the Red Raiders first win over a top-10 ranked non-conference opponent on the road since 2001.
For the Red Raiders, after losing to #4 Arkansas and #4 Rice this past weekend, to come back and beat a top-10 ranked team was huge. It goes along way in making their case to get into the NCAA tournament later on.
Here’s what you like to see. Tech reliever John Neely came on and pitched the middle innings and allowed just one run on three hits, while the Tech offense went to work, plating 4 runs while the Sun Devils failed to score a run from the fourth to the sixth inning.
Tech, now 10-3 so far, continues on the road, traveling to Forth Worth this weekend to face the always tough TCU Horned Frogs. Don’t forget, the TCU joins the Big 12 next season.
