Texas Tech is Back in the Win Column after Defeating New Mexico

True Freshman Zach Erdman got the start on the mound for the Red Raiders and was able to get out of the first inning without allowing the Lobos to put any runs on the board. The scoring started in the top of the second inning however, when the Lobos were able to get one run across before the Red Raiders answered in their half of the inning, scoring two to take the lead on a double from Dillon Carter. The bases were then loaded and an RBI walk to Hudson White scored another to make the lead 3-1. The Lobos scored another run from Erdman before Jase Lopez was brought in in the top of the fourth inning to get out of the inning successfully.

The Red Raiders were able to get two more across the plate in the bottom of the fourth inning on a double from Kevin Bazzell who would go on to score after a collision between two Lobos infielders gave him the go-ahead. Trendan Parish came in to pitch in relief in the top of the sixth inning and was able to get out of the inning without allowing a run, however, Parish gave the Lobos their last run of the day in the top of the seventh giving up a solo home run to make the score 6-3. Neither team would go on to score another run and Tech would take the midweek win after Andrew Devine would close out the top of the ninth inning to earn the save.

This midweek game saw quite the changeup on the defensive end, Hudson White got time at second base for the first time this season and Red Raiders saw the familiar face of Owen Washburn back in right field for his first start since the opening series against Gonzaga. Though Tech was not able to escape this game without recording another error bringing their season total to 28, this team continues to show just how versatile they are on the defensive front.
