After weather delays, cancellations and schedule changes, the Texas Tech Red Raiders baseball team took on the UTSA Roadrunners in game 2 of the series on Sunday afternoon. Though initially scheduled to take place on Roadrunner Field, the rain in San Antonio over the weekend created unplayable field conditions on Roadrunner Field forcing a game relocation to Wolff Stadium. Even with all the changes, Red Raiders managed a 3-0 victory over the UTSA Roadrunners.
John McMillon was the starting pitcher for the first six innings. While the Roadrunners managed to place runners on base, McMillon did not allow any runs. Ty Harpenau took over for McMillon in the seventh inning. He worked a scoreless seventh and eighth. Caleb Freeman helped wrap up game two of the series with no hits, no errors, and no runs.
Cody Farhat was the first to score for the Red Raiders in the 2nd inning, but Gabe Holt and Farhat sealed the win thanks to Kurt Wilson. With Holt and Farhat on 2nd and 3rd, respectively, Wilson managed a two-out, two-RBI RF to give Tech a 3-0 lead over the Roadrunners in the fifth.
Game three of the series will be played tomorrow at noon at Roadrunner Field. Red Raiders remain 7-0 on the season, and, in case you missed it, Saturday night’s 5-0 win against the Roadrunners marked Coach Tim Tadlock’s 200th win as head coach at Texas Tech.
