Red Raiders Lose to West Virginia Again, 9-4

Big inning from West Virginia enough to put Tech away as the Red Raiders are relegated to the loser's bracket

Red Raider of the Game

Anthony Lyons started the game with Tanner Gardner injured. He didn't see much action over the season, but was involved in the scoring today with a walk in the 6th and later came across the plate. He also had a sac fly in the 7th that scored Tyler Floyd.

Play That Impacted The Game

In the bottom of the 7th inning, with the game tied at 3, West Virginia got a walk after a dropped pop up near home plate, a single and a bunt later loaded the bases with nobody out. A triple right in between Stephen Smith and Anthony Lyons scored 3 and West Virginia took a commanding 6-3 lead.

Stat of the Game

0-6. Tech went 0-6 at the plate with 2 outs in an inning. This season they have been able to score runs with 2 outs but could not today, blowing chances to get back into the game late.

Forgotten Play of the Game

Tech scored 2 runs in the 6th inning, but West Virginia made 2 fantastic catches to limit any damage that Tech could do. The center fielder made a great diving catch and the left fielder ran down a ball in the corner. Both catches saved at least 1 run, and probably more.

Big Reason Tech Lost the Game

The Red Raiders just could not score enough today, blowing opportunities to add runs multiple times. They went 8-19 in advancement opportunities and 2-9 with runners in scoring position. The Red Raiders will look to saty alive with a game against Oklahoma tomorrow afternoon.
