LUBBOCK, Texas - A day after suffering an 18-0 rout at the hands of Texas Tech, Jackson State overcame an early two-run lead to shock the Red Raiders, 4-2, Saturday afternoon at Rocky Johnson Field.
The loss marked the Red Raiders' (12-6) first so far in the Texas Tech Invitational heading into their afternoon game against McNeese State. Tech was also previously 4-0 all-time against the Tigers (5-15) as well.
The Red Raiders were held to just three hits by Breea Jamerson, who overcame a pair of runs in the first to strikeout three in a complete-game effort. She retired seven of Tech's final eight hitters as the Red Raiders did not advance a runner to second in the final six innings.
Jasmine Warren cut into Tech's lead in the third with a two-out solo home run to left. The Tigers tied the game two innings later with a RBI groundout from pinch hitter Tatyana Givens.
Jackson State took its first lead in the sixth with a two-run line-drive single from Felicia Wilson that bounced off the outstretched glove of Sydnie Tapia and bounced into left field. Wilson finished 2-for-3 with a single in the fifth as well.
Ashley Brokeshoulder (0-2) took the loss after giving up two runs off two innings in two innings of relief. She came in for Chandler Moore, who tossed two innings of relief for starter Gretchen Aucoin. Shannon Carrico worked around a walk to retire the Tigers in the seventh.
Tech had not previously lost to a non-conference opponent at home since falling, 4-2, to Alcorn State on March 11, 2011, during the Masked Rider Invitational.
