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. side effects from lexapro antidepressant go to site acyclovir in myasthenia gravis nursing paper writing help essay on philosophy of nursing frederick jackson turner thesis about the american frontier cialis viagra levitra generic dingo natura sildenafil richtige dosierung von viagra essay about music producers thesis and dissertation accomplished tmonline program economics phd thesis topics watch green marketing free essay cuanto tarda viagra en hacer efecto here great expectations essays topics a dissertation upon roast pig essayist crossword essay customer relationship marketing pharmacy compare pricing options plavix nelson mandela essay thesis amoxicillin impurities help in writing a college essay canoa viagra londra drinking age should lowered 18 essay 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.
