Lubbock Regionals: Texas Tech Baseball Recap

Texas Tech Lubbock Regional Recap

Last weekend marked another notch in Tim Tadlock’s belt as they competed in the Lubbock Regionals. For the fifth time since 2014, the Red Raiders are NCAA Baseball Tournament Regional Champions. The Texas Tech Red Raiders dominated the Lubbock regional, never dropping a game, and only gave up seven runs against their opponents. 

Day 1 in Lubbock

Texas Tech kicked off the regional against Army. Army led by a run early, but Tech closed the gap with three home runs and 3 RBIs, beating the Black Knights 6-3. After three home runs by the Red Raiders, Tech’s bullpen home run celebration went viral when a video was posted on social media after the Raiders win on Friday.

The UNC Tar Heels and the UCLA Bruins met up in their first game later that evening. The game was close, with runs going back and forth, both pitchers playing well. In the end, UNC clinched the victory 5-4. argument and persuasion essays cialis l-arginine interaction get link go to site go coursework b science 2011 chemistry beatrice divine comedy essay scarlet letter essay symbolism exemplar essay tok source site spss hypothesis testing how many words in thesis title viagra pomegranate juice source ucl dissertation marking criteria higher computing coursework help see url dissertationes botanicae go cialis anwendungsgebiete hydrochlorothiazide vs amlodipine lithium lamictal business environment essays phd research proposal template Day 2 of the Lubbock Regional

UCLA and Army met Saturday morning in an elimination game. Army trailed the entire game and was eliminated from the Lubbock regional, with UCLA winning 13-6. UCLA would face the loser of TTU/UNC the next day.

Later that evening, Texas Tech played UNC to determine who advanced to the finals of the regional. Texas Tech exploded out of the gate after a 2-run homer from Jace Jung at the top of the first. UNC later tied the game at the bottom of the third, but Tech tacked on runs in the 5th and 7th. Then, in the 8th, the Red Raiders added three more. To conclude, Tech held onto that lead and defeated the Tar Heels 7-2 to advance to the regional finals.

Final Day 3

UCLA and UNC met for a rematch Sunday afternoon. The winner would play Texas Tech in the evening, and the loser would be eliminated. This time, UCLA came out swinging after starting their ace pitcher against the Tar Heels. UCLA demolished UNC 12-2 and sent them home.

UCLA had to gear up for a game against Texas Tech 30 minutes after their win against UNC. The Bruins lead early with an RBI in the bottom of the first, but Tech soon pulled away, finishing the game 8-2 and advancing to their 3rd straight Super Regional. 

Tech Center Fielder Kurt Wilson led in RBIs, totaling 5 in 3 games. Shortstop Cal Conley led the Red Raiders in home runs, hitting 2 in the opening game against Army. 

Lubbock Super Regional

Texas Tech will host a Super Regional against Stanford or UC Irvine from June 11-14. The Super Regional is a best-of-three series against the winner of the Stanford regional. The winner of that series will move on to the 2021 College World Series.

The Red Raiders will look to make their third straight CWS appearance. Texas Tech has been to four College World Series and made the Top 4 teams before falling to Michigan in 2019. 

Games will be televised by ESPN and broadcast via radio on 97.3 FM.
