Video: Paul, Wilson Discuss Mountaineer Win

Brady Wilson's home run and Pascal Paul's escape of an eight-inning jam helped secure West Virginia's 2-0 win over Texas Tech.

Wilson gave WVU a cushion with his third inning home run, which came as a bit of a surprise in the cold conditions at Appalachian Power Park. Turning on an expected pitch, he met the ball solidly and drove it over the left field wall to give the Mountaineers a 2-0 lead.

"I was in a good count and sitting on a fastball, and it was up in the zone. I put a good swing on it and before I knew it the ball went over the fence," he said.

In this interview, Wilson also discusses his affinity for playing in Charleston and the pitching job turned in by the West Virginia staff.

Paul, who did a good job in keeping the ball down after coming on in relief of Harrison Musgrave, described an adjustment he made on his arsenal of sinking pitches. After putting the first tow batters aboard in the eights, Paul righted himself to shut down the Red Raiders and earn a save.
