#21 Texas Tech Falls to #15 TCU in a Non-Conference Game in Abilene

The #21 ranked Texas Tech baseball team have now lost two straight games after having their eight game win streak snapped by New Mexico on Monday.  Tech fell to #15 TCU by a final score of 4-0 on Tuesday even though they were able to out hit the Horned Frogs.  It marked the first time in school history that the Red Raiders have faced a league opponent in a non-conference game.  The Horned Frogs evened the season series with Tech after the Red Raiders took two of three in Fort Worth earlier this season.

Tim Tadlock had five players with a base hit in the game while senior right fielder Adam Kirsch (pictured on the right) was the only player with multiple hits going 2-for-3 with a pair of singles.  The team was unable to scratch across a run in this one which was not the case for TCU.  They used seven sacrifices including four sac bunts and three sac flies to score all four of its runs.  #15 TCU’s starting pitcher Jordan Kipper (6-2) earned the win as he went just over six scoreless innings giving up four hits while striking out four Red Raiders.  Tech starter Corey Taylor (5-1) suffered his first loss of the season despite a strong outing.  He was able to go four innings allowing just one run on one hit with two strikeouts and a walk.

The Red Raiders will return to Big 12 play this weekend when they host Oklahoma for a three-game series from Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.  The series opener is set for Friday at 6:37pm, with game two of the series set at 12:02pm on Saturday, and the series concluding on Sunday with a 2:07pm first pitch from Lubbock.
