Texas Tech Tops Prairie View A&M

The Red Raiders pushed their win streak to six games Thursday with a 4-3 victory over the Panthers.

Texas Tech opened the series against
Prairie View A&M on a good note by winning 4-3 on Thursday night pushing their winning streak to six games.

The bullpen came through for the Red Raiders with a save from Dominic Moreno. Thursday night marked the first career start for freshman Ryan Moseley, and he made the most of it. Mosley shut out the Panthers in the first five innings and only allowed one run in the sixth.

"I thought he did a really good job," Tadlock said. "The last two innings were good and to give us six innings tonight we are more then pleased with that."

Dalton Brown came in for a short outing but got in to trouble and allowed two runs. In for the save was Dominic Moreno who cleaned up the seventh inning and didn't allow any more runs. Moreno then came out and struck out four consecutive batters but totaled seven strikeouts in just over two innings pitched.

On the offensive side the Red Raiders had just enough to get the job done. The bats got started off early with Burleson on base Eric Gutierrez hits his seventh home run of the season giving Tech an early lead. The Red Raiders (30-11) tacked on two more runs in the fifth inning.

Texas Tech will continue the series against Prairie View A&M tomorrow at 6:30 p.m.

"It's just another opponent and we are going to go out there and do a good job," Moreno said. "They are not a bad team."
