Red Raider of the Game

Tanner Gardner. Tanner was the DH tonight and went 3-4 with a pair of deep shots and a double.

Play That Impacted the Game

After Kansas took a 6-4 lead in the top of the sixth inning, Brian Klein led off the bottom of the inning. After four pitches the count was even at two and Brian proceeded to foul off four straight, take a ball, and foul off another two before singling down the left field line. Grant Little would double him in to score and Tech took off from there.

Stat of the Game

30. It took Jacob Patterson just 30 pitches to shut down Kansas over the final three innings, in which he allowed just a single batter on base via a hit by pitch. 21 of his pitches were strikes as he struck out four.

Forgotten Play of the Game

Big Reason Tech Won the Game

Resilience. Kansas scored three runs in two separate innings but each time Tech struck back. They scored once in the second inning to cut the lead to 3-2 and four runs crossed the plate in the sixth to give Tech the lead for good.
