#23 Texas Tech Beats West Virgina 3-2 on Friday in Walk Off Fashion for the Second Straight Game
The #23 ranked Texas Tech baseball team took their second straight game over the West Virgina Mountaineers yesterday in dramatic fashion. It would take a two out singled up the middle by junior shortstop Tim Proudfoot and pinch runner Zach Davis came around to score while running on the pitch in the bottom of the ninth to seal the series-clinching win. Proudfoot finished the game going 2-for-4 while seven Red Raiders were able to earn at least one base hit. The junior left-hander Cameron Smith won his team-leading seventh game while going 3.2 scoreless innings without allowing a hit with four strikeouts and allowed one walk. Smith would end the game by retiring seven straight West Virgina batters.
Texas Tech will look for its third consecutive Big 12 series sweep at home on Saturday with first pitch for game three set for 2:05pm. On the season the Red Raiders currently sit at 39-16 overall and 13-10 in Big 12 play. Prior to the game, the team will recognize its six seniors, which includes Jake Barrios, Devon Conley, Jonny Drozd, Adam Kirsch, Mason Randolph and Todd Ritchie.
