There’s been no let down this past weekend as the Red Raiders have improved to 7-1 on the young baseball season. Last weekend they let one get away in a lost to Missouri State. Sunday, Tech put things together and beat #18 St. Johns 5-2 in the first game and they defeated Northern Illinois 10-4 in the second game of a twin bill.

Saturday night against N.Illinois, Tech pitchers combined for 13 strikeouts to help the Red Raiders to an 8-5 win over the Huskies.
On Sunday against the Huskies, Tech’s Barrett Barnes slammed his third home run of the season and third baseman Reid Redman and catcher Bo Altobelli each went yard. In fact Redman notched his first career home run.
So far in the Red Raiders have belted out 39 hits during the classic. In fact in Sunday’s game against the Huskies, Tech scored 10 runs and produced 15 hits, it’s highest run and hit totals of the season.
It looks like things are coming together for coach Dan Spencer and his Red Raiders.
Tech will play Northern Illinois once more this afternoon at 5pm at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park
