TEXAS TECH TEAM NOTES
With the win, Texas Tech improved to 3-1 all-time against Northern Colorado, which was making its first-ever visit to Lubbock this weekend.
The walk-off win was the first for Texas Tech since Mikey Kenney
scored Logan Hall
off a game-winning RBI single to top No. 25 Baylor on April 22 last year.
The game marked Tech's third one-run game during the Texas Tech Invitational as the Red Raiders split a pair of games previously with McNeese State. The Red Raiders are 23-10 all-time under Shanon Hays
in one-run games.
Texas Tech closed its first weekend at home with a 3-2 record at Rocky Johnson Field. The win improved the Red Raiders to 68-22 at home under fourth-year head coach Shanon Hays
improved to 248-74 for his career with the win and 134-58 while at Texas Tech.
Elkins recorded her best performance as a Red Raider so far as she went 3-for-4 with a season-high five RBI. Her three hits also marked a season high as well.
It was her second multiple-hit game of the Texas Tech Invitational and third this season. She also recorded her second multiple-RBI game as well as she joins Sandy James and Adriana Perez as the only Red Raiders to drive in five runs in a game this season.
Johnson finished 2-for-3 at the plate for her sixth multiple-hit game this season. The junior also recorded her team-leading ninth stolen base of the year.
Johnson has now reached base in all 20 games this season, the longest streak for any Tech player since Emily Bledsoe reached in the first 34 games of the 2011 season.
Her three runs scored matched her season high from Feb. 16 against Penn State.
Perez finished 1-for-3 at the plate with a pair of RBI, marking her fifth multiple-RBI game this season. She ended the weekend with the Big 12 lead in home runs (10) and RBI (29).
Kenney finished 1-for-2 at the plate with two runs scored. She ended the weekend ranked among the Big 12 leaders in runs scored, total bases, on-base percentage and slugging percentage.
