Today's game marked the 128th all-time meeting between Texas Tech and Baylor and the Red Raiders extended their all-time lead in the series 68-60 and are now 11-3 against the Bears at Dan Law Field since the Big 12 began back in 1997.
The Tech offense pounded out 14 runs on 17 hits in today's win and the 14 runs are the fifth most this season while the 17 hits are tied for third.
The last time Texas Tech had back-to-back complete game efforts by starting pitchers was in 2001 when Brandon Roberson and Chris Phillips pitched complete games against Kansas on April 27 and 28th.
Texas Tech has now posted eight multiple-home run games this season and has now had 10-plus hits in 22 of 31 games.
Kyle Martin finished the day 4-for-4 with three RBI and two home runs and the four-hit day marks his second of the season. His first home run of the game in the bottom of the fourth marked his first of the year and he now joins Roger Kieschnick as the only two players to have multiple-home run games this year.
Roger Kieschnick's three-run home run in the bottom of the fifth broke a 3-3 tie and gave the freshman left fielder his four dinger of the season. The blast was his first since the final game of the Louisiana-Monroe series back on Feb. 5 (a span of 114 at-bats). He also added a two-RBI triple in the sixth to give him his second three-bagger of the year and his team-leading 19th multiple-hit game.
The 14 runs scored against Baylor is the third highest total in the series since the start of the Big 12 Conference. The most runs in a Big 12 game against the Bears came on May 22, 2004 when Tech beat Baylor 19-18.
Six different Tech hitters had tallied multiple-hit games on the afternoon including four hits by Martin and a pair of three-hit outings by Joey Callender and Brian Capps.
