Today's game marked the 122st all-time meeting between Texas and Texas Tech. The Longhorns own a 90-32 advantage in the all-time series and are 41-17 against the Red Raiders in Lubbock. In Big 12 play, Texas Tech leads the series with Texas 15-12 and is now 7-4 against the Longhorns at Dan Law Field.
Today's 2-1 win over Texas snapped a five-game losing streak to the Longhorns and is Texas Tech's first win over Horns at Dan Law Field since a 9-0 shutout on March 10, 2002.
Miles Morgan's 15 strikeouts set a new career high for the redshirt freshman and is also the most by a Texas Tech pitcher in a Big 12 contest. Morgan also picked up a complete game and that marks the first by a Tech pitcher since Tanner McElroy went nine innings against Oklahoma on May 21, 2005.
Today's win over the 16th-ranked Longhorns is Texas Tech's first win over a ranked opponent this season and the first since defeating then fifth-ranked Nebraska in the first game of the 2005 Phillips 66 Big 12 Tournament in Oklahoma City.
Today's game was Tech's fourth errorless game of the season and the first outing in which Tech pitching did not walk a batter. The last time Tech didn't allow a walk was at Oklahoma on May 21, 2005.
Texas Tech is now 14-0 when leading after the seventh inning and 5-0 in games decided by one run.
Freshman second baseman Willie Rueda picked up his third triple of the season in the bottom of the sixth and that helped set up Tech's first run of the game.
