Texas Tech played their first game in the Big 12 tournament game last night, the team didn’t play well and got run-ruled by sixth seeded TCU. They now face elimination and will play second-seeded Oklahoma State tonight to try and stave off elimination.
Ryan Sublette got the start for the Red Raiders last night, he only pitched one inning plus and gave up four runs on one hit and five walks. The Red Raider pitching staff as a whole gave up fourteen walks last night, way too much for a team trying to get a national seed in the NCAA tournament.
Caleb Freeman finished the second inning for Sublette, giving up two runs of his own on 2 hits and struck out one batter. Connor Queen came in and pitched the next three innings. He gave up three runs on four hits, walked four batters, and struck out three on 62 pitches. Andrew Davis came in to pitch in the sixth inning and went an inning and a third. He gave up three runs on three hits and five walks, striking out one on 45 pitches. Nick Candelari also made an appearance in this game, finishing the seventh inning for Davis, giving up no hits and striking out one batter.
The Red Raider bats were active last night as they accumulated 10 hits on the evening, but couldn’t string anything together as they only managed to score two runs. Josh Jung had the only scored RBI of the game, as Brian Klein scored on a wild pitch in the fifth inning.
This team had a really bad night, but the good thing about college tournaments is that they are double elimination. The Red Raiders could go on a win streak and win this tournament! That redemption will start tonight against the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
What do you all think of the game last night? Should we as fans be worried about getting run ruled in the Big 12 tournament? Let me know in the comment section below!
