Texas Tech Baseball Drops Series Opener to No.4 Texas
The Texas Tech Red Raider baseball team saw their two game win streak come to an end as they fell 4-1, Friday, to 4th ranked Texas from Disch-Falk Field. The Red Raiders did out hit the Longhorns in last night’s game but were only able to get the one run.
Freshman David Paiz threw 6.1 innings for the Red Raiders with all three runs he allowed coming in the 2nd inning. The 6.1 innings thrown matched a career high for Paiz.
The loss dropped the Red Raiders to 22-14 on the season and 5-8 in the Big 12. It also drops Dan Spencer to 3-5 all time against the Longhorns and 37-100 all time in the series. Tech will need to win back to back games now for Spencer to get his first series win over the Texas.
