Junior right-hander Caleb Kilian (8-3) struck out nine over seven innings, but a key triple sparked a two-run fourth and No. 7 Texas Tech baseball fell to No. 17 West Virginia, 5-1, on Thursday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The Red Raiders (37-16) got on the board first in the third inning, but Big 12 Pitcher of the Year Alek Manoah (9-3) stymied the Red Raiders from there in eight innings of work. The Mountaineers (36-18) move on to face the winner of Texas Tech and Kansas on Saturday.

Sophomore Gabe Holt scored the only run of the game for Tech in the third when he reached on one of four hit-by-pitches for the Red Raiders on the day. A double from sophomore Dylan Neuse moved him to third, before a sacrifice fly from junior Brian Klein brought him home to make it a 1-0 game.

A-J Media’s Don Williams – Missed chances cost Tech in 5-1 loss to WVU:

The first time Texas Tech faced West Virginia pitcher Alek Manoah this season, the Red Raiders had to tip their caps to the big righthander for a dominating 15-strikeout performance.

Manoah had to work a lot harder to four-hit the Red Raiders for a second time in the Big 12 tournament.

Tech failed to cash in myriad chances in the first six innings and West Virginia added two runs in the eighth and one in the ninth to close out a 5-1 victory Thursday night in the Division One winners’ bracket final. The Red Raiders went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position, as well as having a runner thrown out at third base and another doubled off second.

“I thought we had opportunities,” Tech coach Tim Tadlock said. “Against a guy like Manoah, you’re not going to get a hit every time. It’s going to be about executing and getting guys over and getting them in. We didn’t do a whole lot of that. But at the same time, we had some base runners, so that’s a positive.”
