Box Score |
The win guaranteed the Red Raiders the Texas Tech Invitational title after beginning the weekend with a 4-0 record. Utah Valley and Bryant are both 1-3 on the weekend.
Prior to Utah Valley's run in the fourth inning, Ashley Brokeshoulder had gone 12-straight innings to start the year without giving up a run. The junior leads Tech with four wins thus far.
Despite not getting the start in the day's first game, Stephanie Drewry extended her hit streak to seven games after a 1-for-4 day at the plate. Drewry's lone hit came off a two-run single in the second inning.
Logan Hall and Raven Richardson both extended hit streaks in the game as Hall is now up to six games and Richardson has moved to five-straight. The duo had a hit a piece.
Kermitria Ward finished 2-for-3 at the plate with a run scored and an RBI. The speedy freshman got the start in right field for the second-straight day. She will likely spend most of Sunday in the circle.
Randi Tongate earned her first start of the season at catcher. She finished 1-for-1 at the plate with a walk.
The Tech pitching staff only allowed seven total hits and three runs over 12 total innings on Saturday. Kelsey Dennis threw a one-hit complete game as part of a 10-2 win over Bryant in the earlier game.
Emily Bledsoe recovered from a rough first game, where she had numerous line drives go straight to fielders, to go 1-for-2 with two run scored against Utah Valley.
