The No. 3 Texas Tech Red Raiders won their 15th game this season as they downed the Kentucky Wildcats by a score of 5-3 to complete the series.
Ryan Sublette got the start for the Red Raiders today and he had another great day. He allowed two runs in 2.1 innings. Sublette also recorded one strikeout and one walk in 41 pitches. Sublette was relieved by Caleb Kilian in the third inning with one runner on 2nd base and one out. Kilian struck out five, walked three, and allowed three hits in his 3.1 innings of relief. He had 64 pitches and finished the third, fourth and 5th innings for the Red Raiders.
Dylan Dusek then came in to pitch the 6th inning with two on base and two out. In his three innings, Dusek did an amazing job only walking one batter and striking out five batters in 42 pitches. He did not allow any hits. It is easy to say he sealed the deal for the Red Raiders. Jose Quezada finished the game for the Red Raiders. He came in to pitch in the ninth inning with two outs already in place. The game was finished with an impressive catch by Josh Jung and a pick by Cameron Warren.
On the offensive side, the Red Raiders saw a couple of homeruns on Sunday. John McMillon hit his first homerun of the season. It was a three-run hit that allowed Cameron Warren and Josh Jung to score and put the Red Raiders on the board. McMillon ended the game with three RBIs, five for the season. The second homerun came from Gabe Holt in the fourth inning. It was a two-run homer to right center that also allowed Cody Farhat to score. Holt ends the night with two RBIs, 13 for the season.
The Red Raiders will remain on the road as they face the University of Louisville on Tuesday and Wednesday. Their first Big 12 conference game will be on Friday at Baylor.
