I’m Back. I didn’t go anywhere, but I sure as heck felt a bit locked out as the internet service was out at where I stay from Friday afternoon until yesterday afternoon. We’re back up and fully operational.

Swept by Texas A&M. The softball team was swept by No. 10 Texas A&M this weekend, losing the first game, 9-5, the second game 7-6 and the third game 17-3. This team is probably going to improve, but not against a top ten team.
Texas Tech Splits with California. Two of the two games were canceled due to rain in sunny California, but in the first game that was played, Texas Tech lost to Cal, 9-2. Erikson Lanning took the loss, going only 4 innings and giving up 4 runs. The bullpen wasn’t great either, Jonathan Nicholson didn’t register an out and Chandler Eden gave up 3 runs in 2 innings. Texas Tech only managed 7 hits and 2B Michael Davis was the only player to manged 2 hits on the day. In the second game, Texas Tech dropped the Bears 11-8, behind two home runs by DH Cory Raley and some solid starting pitching by Davis Martin, who pitched 4 innings, giving up 1 run. Of all things, Ryan Moseley pitched in relief, but didn’t register an out and gave up 5 runs, yes, 5 runs. Yeesh. Raley had 2 hits, and 4 RBI, while CF Tanner Gardner as 3 for 3 and Davis was also 2 of 3 with 2 RBI.
Texas Tech Pro Day. Texas Tech held their Pro Day on Friday afternoon, where Jakeem Grant was terrific, allegedly running a 4.1 40-yard dash, but officially running a 4.34. Micah Awe had a vertical of 39″ and broad jump of 10’7″ with lots of seniors participating overall:
