Texas Tech is back on the road to Omaha after eliminating Louisville 11-6 at Dan Law Field on Sunday night. Red Raiders were the visiting team and started the game with a hit parade.
Holt hit by a pitch and matriculated around the bases on back to back passed balls. Klein walked and with 1st and 3rd with no outs. Josh Jung stepped to the plate sending a 2-2 fastball to right center to score Holt. After Little struck out, Zach Rheams hit a ball that should have had a stewardess and an in-flight movie.
Davis Martin as he pitched five innings with 5 hits, 2 earned runs, and a walk / strike out. Sixty six pitches, and left with a hug to Jose Quezada and a point to the sky.
Red Raiders added runs in the 2nd, 4th, 5th and and 6th to stretch the lead to 9-2.
Louisville’s Snider hit a no doubter two run homer to right field and put his finger to his face trying to shush the crowd. Even after the Cardinals cut the lead to 9-6 the Red Raiders bullpen shut them down.
Texas Tech now hosts the Blue Devils starting on Saturday at 2, Sunday at 3 and Monday at 5 P.M. if necessary.
