Final Score & Box Score:

This much anticipated series begins tonight as the #5 Texas Tech Red Raiders travel to California to take on the #30 Cal State Fullerton Titans. The Titans are recovering a bit after starting off a bit slow and have won four in a row coming into the weekend series, sweeping Baylor and beating Pepperdine this week. The Daily Titan writes that the Titans will rely on their strong starting pitching:

The Titans will need to depend on their starting pitching in order to contain the strong Texas Tech offense. Junior Thomas Eshelman is expected to take the mound Friday night. Eshelman earned his first win in a 10-1 blowout of Baylor last Friday, but his 1.77 ERA will be tested by the Red Raiders.

The Titans’ other ace, Justin Garza, hopes to rebound from a somewhat shaky outing against Baylor on Sunday, where he gave up two earned runs on nine hits and a walk in four innings pitched.

Sophomore first baseman Josh Estill stood out with a pair of game-winning RBIs against the Bears, which earned him Big West Field Player of the Week. The Purdue transfer bumped his batting average to .389 with a team-high 11 RBIs.
