After a pair of chances this week, Texas Tech finally reached the 10-win plateau and now stands at 10-5 overall. Today's 5-3 win over Campbell snapped Tech's two-game losing skid. Tech now leads Campbell 4-1 in the all-time series that began back in 2004.
Senior right-hander Zach Butler made his first career start in a Red Raider uniform and was just his second overall appearance this season. Butler is now 2-0 on the year and has a 2.70 ERA through 13 1/3 innings of work. His only other action this year was a six-inning (then career-long) outing against Texas-Arlington last weekend in the Midland Collegiate Classic.
Tyler Reves and Jason Seefeld each had two-hit games today giving Reves his eight multiple-hit game of the year and Seefeld his third. Seefeld's last multiple hit game was against Louisiana-Monroe on Feb. 5.
Sophomore Jason Seefeld earned the start today at second base after shortstop Kyle Martin was held out of the lineup due to a hand injury. Martin was replaced at shortstop by everyday second baseman Willie Rueda.
Freshman left fielder Roger Kieschnick has now posted an RBI in the last three games and in eight of the last nine. The only game he was held without an RBI was on Sunday against Oral Roberts. Kiechnick now has a nine-game hitting streak which ties the longest by a Red Raider this season (Brian Capps had a nine-game streak snapped in yesterday's game against Campbell).
