May 6, 2005
LUBBOCK, Texas - Dallas Baptist left-hander Jereme Wilson allowed just three hits and struckout six over 7 2/3 innings to lead the Patriots to a 9-3 win over Texas Tech on Friday evening at Dan Law Field. The win evens this three-game series at 1-1 with finale set for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The Texas Tech offense was bewildered all night long as Dallas Baptist starter Jereme Wilson (5-0) retired 12 of the first 13 batters he faced and held Tech in check with just three hits. Wilson struckout six Tech batters and issued five walks before being pulled with two outs remaining in the eighth.
All three of Tech's hits and RBI came from one bat as junior second baseman Joey Callender went 3-for-3, including two doubles and an infield single. Tech's three hits was the second lowest total of the season behind the no-hitter at Missouri.
Brian Wyatt (4-4) wasn't able to follow a good outing last weekend at Baylor as he gave up four earned runs on nine hits over 4 2/3 innings. Unlike, Tech the Patriots had no problems offensively as the pounded out nine runs on 17 hits and didn't commit a single defensive miscue. Designated hitter Ryan Olivo led DBU with three hits (3-for-6) while Matt Tucker added three RBI, including a two-run homer in the fourth.
Texas Tech and Dallas Baptist will play the rubber-match of this three-game series tomorrow evening at Dan Law Field. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m.
