LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech baseball team will play a three-game home series this weekend against West Texas A&M. Game times for the series are 3 p.m. on Friday, 12:00 noon on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Texas Tech (0-1) enters the weekend after having lost its first game at New Mexico 7-6 on Tuesday, Feb. 3. Feb. 4's game at New Mexico was cancelled due to inclement weather (snow and cold). Texas Tech's pitching rotation has yet to be decided upon as of late Thursday.
