The heart of the Red Raiders line-up with Josh Jung, Grant Little, and Zach Rheams teamed up and gave the rest of the teams attending the Lubbock Regional no shot of winning this weekend. The offense scored nine or more runs in each of the three games. With the three players mentioned above combining for 14 RBI.
Josh Jung hit .455 while scoring five runs and producing four RBI. Grant Little hit .417, scored three runs, and produced three RBI. Both of these players who picked up both Big 12 and All-American honors continued to do the things they have done all year long.
Zach Rheams continued his assault of the tree just over the right field wall. He hit three home runs this weekend, one in the opening game and two in the clinching game. In the clinching game, he went 4-4, scored three runs, and produced five RBI. Each of his hits were absolutely hammered. He opened with a three run homerun that looked like a shotput had been left at track complex. Then hit a double into the right field corner, followed by a single down the left field line, and finally a solo home run to give Tech some cushion in the top of the ninth inning. Rheams came up huge in the most meaningful game of the season.
Dan Law Field was packed with scouts trying to get a final peek at prospects before today’s MLB Draft. Little and Rheams, who are both draft eligible, made sure their final impression to the scouts was emphatic.
