Regarding being able to watch each game, I haven’t found anything definitive other than the FoxSportsGo app and that the games will be on the FOX Sports networks family. So, it will just have to be game-by-game.

LAJ previewed the championship series and head coach Tim Tadlock says that this ain’t over just yet:

“There is a bigger picture in mind to what we want to achieve, but there is a reason to celebrate,” Texas Tech coach Tim Tadlock said Saturday after Tech swept Kansas and won a share of the Big 12 regular season title. “Anytime you win a Big 12 title it is special. The guys will enjoy it tonight, but at the same time they know there is a trophy to go win in Oklahoma City.”

Schedule

I debated not posting the entire thing, but I’ll update things as the games happen.

Wednesday, May 24
Session One
Game 1: No. 4 West Virginia vs. No. 5 Baylor – 9:00 a.m. — West Virginia 11, Baylor 1
Game 2: No. 1 Texas Tech vs. No. 8 Oklahoma State – 12:30 p.m. —
FCS & FSSW+ (Preview | Notes) | RHP Davis Martin (4-1, 2.57) vs. TBD — Oklahoma State 3, Texas Tech 0 (Recap | Box Score)

Well, Davis Martin returned and pitched 3.1 innings after being off for what seemed like a couple of months and allowed 5 hits and 3 runs, all earned, walking none and striking out none. The fact that Martin pitched somewhat makes me think that head coach Tim Tadlock is pretty comfortable with where Texas Tech is at nationally. I’m sure they’d love to win the Big 12 Championship, but Texas Tech did their thing in the regular season.

The Texas Tech bats were incredibly quiet, only mustering 5 hits for the entire game.

Session Two
Game 3: No. 2 TCU vs. No. 7 Kansas – 4:00 p.m. — Kansas 7, TCU 3
Game 4: No. 3 Oklahoma vs. No. 6 Texas – 7:30 p.m. — Texas 8, Oklahoma 4

Thursday, May 25
Session Three
Game 5: Game 1 Loser vs. Game 2 Loser – 9:00 a.m. — Baylor vs. Texas Tech — Texas Tech 4, Baylor 1 (Recap | Box Score)
Steven Gingery moved to 9-1 on the year after going 6 innings and allowing 7 hits, 0 runs, walking 3 and striking out 6. Not exactly his best outing, but it is good for his 9th win and I’m sure he’ll take it. Jose Quezada went 1.1 innings and allowed 2 hits and a run as well as 2 walks and striking out 3. I think he had a rough go at it to start to his relief, he’s in a rough spot right now. Parker Mushinski earned his 5th save of the year by finishing the final 1.2 innings, allowing just a hit and striking out 2. Orlando Garcia and Cody Farhat each homered, solo shots, and that’s pretty awesome. Farhat’s was a shot into left field. You can see full highlights at the Big 12 site.
