Preview: The staff is probably looking to see if freshman SP Brandon Petite can repeat what he did last week against Texas A&M-CC and DT's Adam Coleman writes that the coaching staff is hoping that Petite performs:
Last time Brandon Petite was on the mound, he pitched like his coaches knew he could.
The highly-touted freshman had struggled a little bit as a starter prior to his seven-strikeout performance against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on March 23.
Another outing like that against New Mexico State at 6:30 p.m. today in Midland and the Red Raiders may have a strong arm at the end of the rotation.
"He needs to be solid again," Tech coach Dan Spencer said. "He was really good Tuesday. I hope he can build on that and if he gives us another good start, we’re going to be right where we need to be."
