Texas Tech will have to get back on track this series after dropping a series to Kansas State. I can’t remember that happening and I’d imagine that Tadlock lit a significant fire underneath the team. One of those moves is benching Mason Montgomery, the former Sunday starter and shuffled the lineup a bit, moving Birdsell to Sunday, keeping Monteverde on Saturday, and Dallas to Friday. Texas Tech needs to win this series. TCU and Texas are playing lights out, especially since K-State, prior to the Texas Tech series, was swept by Oklahoma State. I’m also guessing we see some adjustments to the bullpen.
