Nice job by Chad Bettis. Bettis pitched the Red Raiders to a 6-2 win over the Sooners on Saturday. It looks like Bettis gave Texas Tech 7.0 solid innings of 6 hit ball, allowing only 2 runs, 1 earned, with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. James Leverton pitched the final 2.0 innings, giving up 1 hits, walking 1 and striking out 2. This is how it is supposed to work. Excellent job.
At the plate, no one managed more than 1 hit for the day, but Logan Leslie pinch hit for Taylor Ashby and came through with a pinch hit single to right, scoring Kieschnick and Richburg. This was all part of a 4 run 6th inning, which put the Red Raiders ahead of the Sooners. Jason Seefeld hit is his 9th home run of the year, while Chris Richburg, Willie Rueda and Chris Hall all each had an RBI.
LAJ's George Watson recaps yesterday's win over Oklahoma, and has this from Bettis, who was pitching on his birthday:

Fox34 with your incredibly exciting highlights from Saturday's game, including interiews with Hays, Bettis and Leslie. The slide from Kieschnick was exciting.
