Texas Tech Baseball Takes First Game at Kansas

Texas Tech starting pitcher Duke von Schamann pitched a complete game as the Red Raiders beat the Kansas Jayhawks 3-1 in Lawrence.

Texas Tech (16-11, 2-5 Big 12) claimed its sixth straight win over the Jayhawks (10-15, 0-4 Big 12) with the streak dating back to 2010. Duke von Schamann pitched his third complete game of the season and his second in as many starts.

The Jayhawks got out to an early 1-0 lead in the first inning, scoring an unearned run after a Tim Proudfoot error allowed a runner to reach second base.

Tech then responded with a run of their own in the second inning. Brennan Moore singled home Bo Altobelli with two outs in the inning.

With the game still tied 1-1 in the top of the eighth inning the Red Raiders rallied with two outs.  Barrett Barnes singled to center.  Scott LeJeune singled to left center and Barnes was able to go first to third on the hit.  A wild pitch by Kansas reliever Robert Kahana allowed Barnes to score the winning run.

Tech added an insurance run in the top of the ninth to seal the win.

Game 2 of the Red Raiders series against Kansas is Saturday at 2pm.
