Texas Tech's 18 walks taken at the plate shattered the school record of 11 set against Oklahoma State on May 5, 2007.
The Red Raiders ended their 18th game this season by run rule, matching the single-season school record that was set in 1997. Tech has ended five of its last six games by run rule.
Tech's 12 RBIs in the game gives the Red Raiders 260 on the season, two more than the 1997 school record of 258.
The Red Raiders need just six more runs to match the school record for a single-season. Tech currently has 296, six shy of the record set only a year ago.
Taylor Powell's three-run homer in the fifth inning gives Tech 39 dingers for the season, tying the school record set last year. The home run was Powell's second of the season as she also set a new season high for RBIs with three in the game.
Emily Bledsoe extended her career-high hitting streak to 13 games after a 1-for-2 day at the plate that included three runs scored, a RBI, and three walks.
Cydney Allen's four walks in the game matched the school's single-game record held by Alex Wakins, who accomplished the feat against Pacific on March 1, 2009.
Despite playing just five innings, the game lasted 2 hours and 26 minutes, the third-longest game for the Red Raiders this season.
