Texas Tech heads to Omaha for its first-ever appearance at the College World Seires
June 12, 2014LUBBOCK, Texas - No. 7 Texas Tech (45-19) will make its College World Series debut in Omaha, Nebraska, when it takes on Big 12 foe No. 2 TCU (47-16) on Sunday, June 15 at 2 p.m. CT at TD Ameritrade Park. The Red Raiders historic season marches on after winning their first-ever NCAA Super Regional sweeping No. 16 College of Charleston (1-0, 1-0) last weekend in Lubbock at Rip Griffin Park. It marked the first time in the NCAA Super Regional era that a team had won with a pair of 1-0 games. It was only the second time in Super Regionals history that a team had shutout its opponent during the best-of-three series after Rice posted a pair of shutouts over LSU in the 2002 Houston Super Regional. Tech's pitching staff led the way against College of Charleston as the Red Raider pitching staff notched its third straight shutout (first time since 1976) and its fourth shutout during its last five games - all coming in the NCAA Tournament. Prior to this season Tech had never recorded a shutout in its NCAA history. TCU advanced to the College World Series for the second time in program history while winning the NCAA Fort Worth Regional and winning a third and final game of the Fort Worth Super Regional against Pepperdine.
