LET’S RUBBER MATCH

It’s that time of the week again. Your Texas Tech Red Raiders are in a winner-take-all match with the East Carolina Pirates. The past two games have been slugfests, and now we find ourselves in another heavyweight fight, this time for the championship. East Carolina won the first game off the momentum of a Travis Watkins Grand Slam. Texas Tech won the second game through nifty fielding, Robert Duggar's pitching, and Tyler Floyd finally being cleared to cross home plate. Today’s game will decide who moves on to the College World Series.

FIRST PITCH:

2 PM CST

HOW TO WATCH:

This game will appear on ESPNU, and as always various internet radio and regular radio outlets will have the game.

The Air Raid Podcast is always a good listen.

We thought both teams had pirate-y mascots, so here’s a preview comparing players and coaches to historical pirates.
