Texas Tech Baseball Opens 2012 Season with 4-1 Win over Missouri State

Texas Tech Red Raider Baseball opened the 2012 season with a victory over the Missouri State Bears 4-1 Friday afternoon on a dreary day in Lubbock. The Red Raiders also opened their season in the newly renovated Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park with brand new seats, press box, and luxury boxes in the multi-million dollar work which spanned several months.

Reid Redman drove in two runs to give Tech the early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first and that would be enough offense for Duke Van Schammann on the mound for the Red Raiders. Van Schammann (1-0) threw seven innings giving up only one run, unearned, while striking out six with a walk.

Luke Voit would drive in the only run for the Bears in the top of fourth with an RBI single, but that would be the only offense mustered by Missouri State (0-2). Tim Proudfoot would drive in the remaining two runs for Tech with a 2-RBI triple to make the score 4-1 in the eighth inning.

Texas Tech (1-0) will face Tennessee Tech (1-0) tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. following Missouri State and Tennessee Tech in the early game. Tennessee Tech defeated Missouri State 3-2 earlier on Friday.
