TEXAS TECH TEAM NOTES

• The two wins improve Tech to 4-0 this week after a doubleheader sweep of New Mexico on Monday in Lubbock.
• Prior to the series, Tech was 1-5 this year when trailing after four innings. The Red Raiders overcame a 1-0 deficit in the first game with a four-run fifth inning.

HAYS PICKS UP WIN NO. 100 AT TEXAS TECH
• Head coach Shanon Hays picked up his 100th victory at Texas Tech in the 4-1 series-opening victory. The third-year head coach is now 101-41 during his time at Tech.

• Hays improved to 215-57 in five seasons as a collegiate head coach.

KENNEY SETS CAREER HOME RUN RECORD
• With her second-inning home run in the second game, Mikey Kenney became the career home run leader at Texas Tech as she now has 28 over her career.
