#21 Texas Tech Fell in the Opening Round of the Big 12 Tournament at the Hands of #19 Texas

The #21 ranked Texas Tech baseball team struggled yesterday as they fell in their opening game 8-3 at the hands of the #19 Texas Longhorns.  Texas Tech had its four game win streak snapped while dropping its sixth straight first round contest at the Big 12 Tournament.  The Longhorns now hold a 4-2 lead over the Red Raiders in the all-time head-to-head series in Big 12 Championship action.

Junior starting pitcher Corey Taylor (5-3) took the loss for Tech as he allowed five runs on six hits while striking out two and allowing one walk.  Longhorns right-handed pitcher Lukas Schiraldi (7-3) earned the win going just over 5 innings allowing just one run on four hits with three strikeouts and walking five Red Raiders.  The Longhorns broke the game opening scoring five runs in the second inning while receiving six base hits, including a two-run double by center fielder Mark Payton, to give Texas a 5-0 lead and Tim Tadlock could never recover.

Texas Tech will now face Oklahoma in an elimination game on Thursday with first pitch for that game set for 12:30pm from Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City.
