Texas Tech Falls to No.5 Texas A&M in Late Innings
The Texas Tech Red Raider baseball team saw their three game win streak come to an end as the 5th ranked Texas A&M Aggies used a late inning home run for a 5-4 victory, Saturday evening. Texas A&M got the series tying win thanks to a three run eight inning homer from Adam Smith.

The loss dropped Tech to 20-12 on the season and 5-6 in the Big 12. It broke their three game winning streak and was their four conference loss in their last five chances. The Aggies improved to 23-8 on the season and 8-3 in Big 12 play.
Even though the Red Raiders did suffer a loss, they recorded a season high 6 stolen bases. Barrett Barnes led all Tech runners with two stolen bases.
Texas Tech and Texas A&M will close out their three game weekend series, Sunday. Sunday’s game will also determine the winner of the series as Tech won the first game on Friday, 4-3 in extra innings. First pitch is set for 1pm from Dan Law Field.
