Texas Tech Starting Pitcher: LHP Cameron Smith

Final Score & Box Score: Texas Tech 4, Sacramento State 3 (recap & box score)

Woooot!  Texas Tech couldn’t get anything started offensively for six innings, but Tim Proudfoot hit a home run in the 7th inning, but was still down 3-1 heading into the 9th inning. Then the improbable happened as Texas Tech scored 3 in the bottom of the 9th inning. Frank Phillips College transfer William Hairston singled to start the 9th inning, Tim Proudfoot struck out, then occasional pitcher and occasional hitter Quinn Carpenter, another transfer, this one from Iowa Western, singles moving Hairston to second. Tanner Gardner strikes out so Texas Tech is down to 1 out. Yet another transfer steps up, from Temple College, Cory Raley, doubles scoring Hairston and Carpenter. Of course, Eric Gutierrez, is intentionally walked because he’s GUUUT. Now, you’ve got runners at first and second and Tyler Neslony singles up the middle scoring Raley and winning the freaking game.  That is, of course, all of the offense, and Cameron Smith pitched 6 solid innings, giving up 5 hits, allowing 3 runs, striking out 7 and walking 1.  Dominic Moreno came in to pitch the final 3 frames, allowing only 2 hits and striking out 5 while walking none.

I think I’ve figured out a way to keep this post close to the top of the page. The amazing thing is that I’m still figuring out a ton of things with the staff.  I will be updating this post through the weekend, complete with video and all sorts of things.  I’ll make it a promise to have more complete previews starting next week.
