LUBBOCK, Texas - The Red Raider baseball, softball and track teams are on a roll and need your help this weekend.
The Texas Tech softball and baseball teams are making some noise in the Big 12 Conference and both teams have goals of earning a spot in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. This weekend both teams will be in action in Lubbock as the softball team hosts Texas on Thursday night at 7 p.m. and then a two-game series against Texas A&M at 2 p.m. on Saturday and noon on Sunday. The baseball team will host the Missouri Tigers in a three-game series beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Friday. The series continues at 5 p.m. on Saturday and will conclude at noon on Sunday.
"This is a really big weekend for both our baseball and softball teams and I would like to encourage our great fans to come out and watch them play," said Texas Tech director of athletics Gerald Myers. "Both Coach Spencer and Coach Hays have done a remarkable job with both of these programs and have them headed down a path that will lead to championships in the future. I hope everyone will come out and support them and we set all kinds of attendance records all weekend long."
The softball team, ranked No. 25 this week by an unofficial poll from the Ultimate College Softball group, is currently in sixth place in the league standings with a 7-8 conference record but can make a major move with wins over No. 12 Texas and No. 20 Texas A&M. The Longhorns lead the Big 12 with a 10-2 record while the Aggies are in fourth place at 7-6.
The Tech baseball team, picked to finish last in the preseason, has been on a roll over the last month as the Red Raiders are in sole possession of third place in the Big 12 after winning four consecutive Big 12 series. Tech has two home series left against Missouri (April 30 - May 2) and Baylor (May 14-16) before closing out the regular-season at Nebraska (May 21-23).
Tech fans are encouraged to help us sellout both venues this weekend and give the Red Raiders the best home field advantage possible. Tickets for Tech softball must be purchased at the gate while advance tickets for baseball can be purchased online at www.texastech.com. The Dan Law Field (baseball) ticket off will open two hours prior to first pitch for those fans who wish to purchase tickets at the game.
