Recap |  Box Score

• Texas Tech is now 2-0 in extra inning games this season. The Red Raiders went nine innings in a season-opening 7-5 victory over BYU.

• Liberty's four runs in the first inning were the most surrendered by Tech in the opening frame this season. The Red Raiders had only surrendered four or more runs in an inning twice this season, the last time coming against New Mexico in game one of a doubleheader on March 9.

Kermitria Ward went a season-high 8.2 innings in relief, picking up her fifth win of the season. It marks the longest outing for a Tech pitcher since Karli Merlich went 8.2 innings as well against Oklahoma on April 15, 2010.

• The only run Ward surrendered came in the eighth inning, meaning the run is unearned since international tiebreaker rules were enforced. She gave up five hits while striking out six.

Sandy James' home run in the fourth inning was her team-leading 12th of the season and eighth in Tech's last 14 games, dating back to the doubleheader against New Mexico on March 9.

• All but one Tech starter had at least one hit in the game, led by a 2-for-4 day by Cydney Allen.

Raven Richardson wrapped a good weekend in the field, matching her season-high of five assists while also adding a 1-for-4 day at the plate.
