Texas Tech University vs University of Oklahoma

Thus far, Texas Tech Baseball has had a very successful running and is currently ranked No. 7 in the nation. Several times within the season, the Red Raiders have fallen and progressed in rankings and, as of right now, are looking to finish the season strong. After a canceled series against the University of Illinois at Chicago, the Red Raiders will look to build onto their momentum while heading into the postseason. 

        The Red Raider’s overall record is 31-11 overall and 10-8 in the conference and is still running to win the conference. The team’s next conference game/series is against the Oklahoma Sooners in Norman, Oklahoma.

        The Oklahoma Sooners are currently 24-22 overall and 8-10 in the conference. While having somewhat of a down season, the Sooners will look to bounce back as they take on a red-hot Texas Tech Baseball Red Raiders team. The Sooners currently have five players on their roster who are batting above .300 for the season. While having five players who can make a play at any time, they only have two players above a .310. Those players being Tyler Hardman and Tanner Treadaway. 

        Tyler Hardman is a Redshirt Junior from Corona, California. While having the highest batting average for the team at .394, he also leads the team in many other categories. He is also tied first for games played for the Sooners and leads the team at-bat with 188. Hardman plays in the infield on the defensive side of the ball and has been versatile by playing several positions. With the combination of his speed, length, and coordination, Hardman can pose a significant threat for the Red Raiders on either side of the ball. 

        The other player to keep an eye on for the Sooners is Redshirt Junior Tanner Treadaway, from Justin, Texas. Also, standing as one of the most versatile players on the team. Treadaway can play multiple positions on both the infield and the outfield. The transfer from Seminole State College will look to continue his season as he has played 38 of 36 games. By maintaining a .311 batting average throughout the season, he has the second-highest batting average for the team while being at-bat 148 this season. Watch out for Treadaway to be a significant problem through the three-game series. 

TTU Players to Keep an Eye On

        On the other side of things, the Texas Tech Baseball team are coming off a win against OU at a mutual site, and Texas at home has all the momentum behind them. The Red Raiders have three players above a .300 batting average, and all three have the potential to make big-time plays. Those three players being Dru Baker, Jace Jung, and Cal Conley. All three have been significant threats at the plate all season. The team has contributed and stepped up to keep a top 10 ranking throughout the season. 

        With an arsenal of athletes on the team, the Red Raiders will look to handle the Oklahoma Sooners. In a conference where anything can happen, the team will have to be on their A-game and take care of business while in Norman. The game will begin May 14th at 6:30 pm, followed by the other two in the three-game series. The second is Saturday the 15th at 2 pm, followed by the last Sunday, May 16th at 2 pm. The series will be played at L. Dale Mitchell Park in Norman, Oklahoma.
