The Red Raiders jumped on the board in the second inning off a Bryant Burleson RBI double to give Texas Tech a 1-0 lead. The scoring would continue for Texas Tech in the third inning with Scott LeJeune and Stephen Hagen each driving in a run to make the score 3-0 Red Raiders. Tech would put the Patriots out of their misery in the fourth inning with two more runs for a commanding 5-0 lead.
