#24 Texas Tech Sweeps Doubleheader Against UAPB on Tuesday

 

Ashley Wirz, 1340TheFan.com

The #24 ranked Texas Tech baseball team continued to play well at home on Tuesday as they were able to come away with the series sweep over the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff.  Tim Tadlock had two dominating pitching performances yesterday as the Tech pitching staff gave up just one run in 18 innings of work while striking out 22 batters and allowing just two walks.  The team went on to win game one 2-0 and game two by a final score of 5-1.

Offensively, eight Red Raiders paced the offensive attack which finished with 10 base hits, including senior designated hitter Adam Kirsch who went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, two doubles and two RBI in the game two victory.  Kirsch currently leads the nation with 15 doubles.

With the win Texas Tech is now 16-2 at home this year along with notching a 21-7 record to start the year.  The Red Raiders will now turn their attention back to Big 12 play as they host the #12 ranked Texas Longhorns (20-6, 1-2 Big 12) for its Big 12 home opener, March 28-30, at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.  First pitched for game one is set for Friday at 6:37 p.m. and can be seen on FOX College Sports.
