Mike Dalby, 1340TheFan.com

The Texas Tech Red Raider baseball team defeated the Texas Longhorns Friday night 7-6 in extra innings to even the series at a game apiece.

Texas struck first, scoring two runs in the top of the fourth inning, but Texas Tech responded in the bottom half of the inning with three runs to regain the lead 3-2.

The Red Raiders added one more in the fourth to extend the lead to 4-2 before the Longhorns evened things by scoring two in the seventh.

The Horns put themselves in position for the win scoring two in the top of the 14th, but Texas Tech responded with three of their own in the 14th for the win.

Texas Tech freshman Bryant Burleson drove in the game-tying and winning run in the bottom of the 14th inning with a two out, two-run single to right field.

First baseman Scott LeJeune powered the Red Raiders from behind the plate driving in three runs off four hits.

Duke von Schamann got the starting nod for the Red Raiders going seven innings, allowing seven hits and striking out eight while walking none.

Tech reliever Jamen Parten (1-0) took the win pitching just 0.1 innings to close out the top of the 14th. Red Raider right-handed pitcher Shane Broyles held Texas scoreless from the eighth to 13th inning while giving up only one base hit.
