First pitch tonight from Rip Griffin Park is at 6:30pm. Texas Tech is 10-7 on the season and Utah Valley is 7-8 on the season. Tech sends Johnny Drozd to the mound tonight.

The Red Raiders are coming off a weekend where they took two of three from UT-Arlington. The Wolverines took two of three from Nevada over the weekend at home. Utah Valley and Texas Tech have a common opponent in the Arizona Wildcats. Both teams split a two game midweek series in Tucson.
