Baseball Falls to Grand Canyon. Yes. Grand Canyon. Texas Tech fell to Grand Canyon, 5-4, in extra innings yesterday evening (recap and box score). Bah. Not real happy about this, but I understand that when your starting pitchers get scratched from the lineup, like Dusek and Taylor, then everything else starts to suffer. Honestly though, a mid-week starter like Ty Damron giving up only 3 runs in 7 innings isn’t anything to really complain about. I’d also add that the bats have been quiet recently, or at least it has felt that way. I haven’t done the research to figure out if that’s accurate, but it feels like Texas Tech is leaving too many men on base, and last night, Texas Tech left 12 on base.

Women’s Tennis to Host Regional. Huge congrats to the women’s tennis team that will host a first and second round of the NCAA Regional at the McLeod Tennis Center, the first round being May 8th and featuring LSU vs. New Mexico and Texas Tech taking on New Mexico State with the second round being May 9th and the winner of the two matches.

Men’s Tennis Heads to L.A. Another huge congrats to the men’s tennis team as they’ll be heading west to take on UC Santa Barbara and will be the #2 seed of their regional. If Texas Tech can get past UC Santa Barbara, they’ll then take on the winner between UCLA and Florida Gulf Coast.

Men’s Golf Sits 2nd in Big 12 Championship. The men’s golf team sits 20 shots behind Texas and is 8 shots ahead of TCU heading into the third and final day of the Big 12 Championship.
