Texas Tech Baseball
Ugh, another loss, Tech gets swept by Oklahoma State. Not good. The offense managed only 2 hits the entire game and it wasn't necessarily one pitcher dominating the game, OSU's Andrew Oliver pitched only 5 innings (throwing 101 pitches and walking 6. Reliever Justin Friend finished off the Red Raiders by pitching the final 1.2 innings. Starting pitcher Colt Hynes gave up 6 hits, 6 runs, all earned, while walking 2 and striking out none in 3.1 innings. Travis Young in relief wasn't much better. It seems to me that this team's starting pitchers are simply over-matched and seemed as if they've been over-matched the last half of the season. I wonder if the incoming recruits (8 pitchers I think) will be able to turn this team around. Not only that, if this team hopes to compete next year this offense has to be more consistent.
LAJ's George Watson has his game story and has this from Coach Hays:
"They're down," Hays said of the Tech players. "I feel bad for them and feel bad for our fans, and it's really tough to come back (today) and be ready to play, but that's our challenge."
The final home game of the season is today against New Mexico, first pitch at 3:00 p.m.
