This is a short, midweek two game series with UC Riverside, and the Red Raiders, coming off of a sweep from Cal-State Northridge, splitting one of these two games is absolutely necessary. Although I didn't get to see the team perform, I'm hoping that there's some focus on the offense, to maybe manufacture some runs, get some guys in play and move them around the bases.
LAJ's George Watson previews the series and notes that the Highlanders have had quite a bit of success pitching thus far, so a struggling Texas Tech offense will certainly need to step up their game.
"They've got a good club," Spencer said. "Strong, veteran pitching. It's going to be all we can handle."
"It's always important to win," Spencer said. "It's important for us to execute better. That leads to wins."
