Texas Tech baseball is back and the Lubbock community is excited and ready.

The team opened its first game at home against Dallas Baptist on Tuesday, February 22nd with a win 8-4.

The game was a good one, with Jace Jung, Dillion Carter and Ty Coleman already stepping up to make some big plays. This comes after some hard games played in Arlington with a win against Michigan, and losses to Auburn and Arizona.

Last Saturday when Texas Tech was facing Auburn in Arlington, Carter had an amazing play where leaped above the outfield wall at Globe Life Field to steal a home-run ball. The play even made the ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10 plays.

Head Coach Tim Tadlock said the pitching rotation will be in the starting order of Andrew Morris, Brandon Birdsell and Mason Molina.
