Here's some quick notes from Tech's 10-6 win over KU on Thursday.
- Tech improved to 40-13 overall this season marking the third time in four years the Red Raiders baseball program has done so and 14th all-time
- The Red Raiders moved to 14-8 in the Big 12 standings, a game behind TCU, meaning Tech can still grab a share of the Big 12 title if it beats Kansas both Friday and Saturday
- Tech is a combined 163-78 over the past four seasons and 189-108 since Tim Tadlock took over before the 2013 season
- Tanner Gardner entered the series against KU without a home run this season, but crushed two Thursday night. He finished 3-for-4, with 2 HR, 4 RBI, 3 runs
- The 4 RBI tied a career-high for Gardner
- Gardner's stellar night at the plate pushed his batting average over .300, which means 8 of the 9 batters in Tech's lineup bat .300 or better on the season. 2B Brian Klein bats a respectable .288.
- Leadoff man Grant Little also had a career night Thursday by tying his career best for hits in a game with four. He finished 4-5 with an RBI and two runs scored.
- Hunter Hargrove finished 2-4 with 2 RBI. He owns a 9-game hitting streak.
- Hargrove also made an amazing play in the field at first Thursday night with a diving catch which no doubt save at least a run.
- Cody Farhat made a couple spectacular catches himself, plus showed off his cannon arm and played like an all around badass in center field Thursday night. Here's one of those spectacular catches.
- TTU ace Steven Gingery didn't have his best stuff Thursday but left the fifth with a two-run lead Tech lost before eventually taking back. His final line was 3 earned runs on seven hits, three walks with seven strikeouts on 96 pitches.
- Freshman Caleb Killian got the W to move to 5-0 on the season
- Jacob Patterson picked up the save after allowing 0 earned runs, and striking out four Jayhawks in three innings of work.
