Game 1 of the double-header was more of the same from Friday night, good pitching from OU and quiet Texas Tech bats (recap). AJ Ramos (8.0 IP; 6 H; 4 ER; 3 BB; 8 SO) pitched a complete game, or as complete as he could, going all eight innings. You'll take that every start from Ramos, nothing to be ashamed of here. The offense struggled to do much of anything, netting only 5 hits, two of which were from Garrett Totten (2-4) who had the only multi-hit day.
Game 2 was another complete game, this time from Chad Bettis, who does everything and dominates when he does it (recap). Chad Bettis (9.0 IP; 4 H; 1 ER; 4 BB; 9 SO) was absolutely dominate, scattering only 4 hits the entire game, while OU's lone run game in the bottom of the 9th. Leading the offense was Taylor Ashby (2-4, 2 RBI) and Michael Reed (3-4). Part of OU's undoing in this game was the 4 errors, which resulted in two of Texas Tech's five runs.
Not a bad series for the Red Raiders. They weren't out of any game and they were on the road against the #11 team in the nation. As of right now, the Red Raiders are 7-8 in conference play, good for 7th in the conference, which is good enough, right now, for a spot in the Big 12 Tournament. The Red Raiders have one game on Monday in Fort Worth against TCU and then will be home for 5 straight games next weekend and a week-day series with UNLV.
