• Tonight's game marked the first all-time between Texas Tech and Midwestern State.
• The game also marked the first time Tech had played a sub-Division I opponent since facing Eastern New Mexico in a doubleheader on March 30, 2005 in Lubbock.

• The win was Tech's final one in non-conference this year as the Red Raiders will close the year with a 27-5 mark against out-of-conference foes.
• Tonight's game marked the first home "night" game for the Red Raiders this year. Tech had previously played all eight of its previous home contests during the day.
• Tech scored at least 10 runs for the fifth time this year and the third time in the past five games.
• The Red Raiders also had 11 hits in the game, marking the seventh-straight contest Tech has had eight or more.
• Despite the success at the plate, Tech committed two errors in the contest, marking the sixth multiple-error game for the Red Raiders this year.
• Texas Tech's six home runs in the game mark a new school record, snapping the previous mark of five that had been accomplished three times in history, most recently against St. John's on Feb. 26 last year.
• The six home runs snapped the previous high of four set against Seton Hall on March 16.
• The Red Raiders led off four different innings with a home run, a feat that had happened 12 times already this year.
• Tech hit five solo home runs during the game, giving Tech 28 solo homers now out of 44 long balls on the year.

Adriana Perez
• Perez hit two home runs for the second-straight game, giving her a team-high 11 now on the year.
• Perez joins Sandy James as the only players to homer twice in a game this year as both have accomplished the feat twice thus far.
• She finished 2-for-3 at the plate with two runs scored and four RBI. It marked her team-leading 12th multiple-hit game of the year and her eighth multiple-RBI game.
• After recording seven RBI in Tech's last game against Seton Hall, the junior now has 11 total RBI in her past six at-bats. She is 5-for-6 during that span as well.

Raven Richardson
• Richardson connected on her fifth home run of the year on a solo shot to lead off the second inning. It was the third time she has led off an inning with a home run this year.

Cydney Allen
• Allen smashed her second home run of the year to close the game. It was her first long ball since hitting a three-run shot in the first game against New Mexico on March 12.
• Both of Allen's home runs this year have come in pinch hit opportunities.

Mikey Kenney
• Despite Tech hitting six home runs in the game, Kenney was able to launch a long ball of her own but still managed to go 2-for-4 at the plate.
• She had a RBI triple in the fifth inning, only the third triple for a Tech player this year and only the second in Kenney's career. Her only other triple came March 13 last year against Alcorn State.
• It was Kenney's eighth multiple-hit game of the year and her fifth in Tech's last nine games. She is currently second on the team in multiple-hit performances.

Emily Bledsoe
• Bledsoe finished 0-for-1 at the plate with a season-high three walks that also matched her career high. It marked the third time this year a Tech player had drew three walks in a game.
• It was the fourth time in Bledsoe's career she had three walks in a game and the first since facing Colorado State on March 17 last year.
• With her start tonight, Bledsoe has now started in 205-straight games, a streak that began her freshman year. She moved into sole possession of seventh on the school's career games played chart.

Taylor Powell
• Powell hit her third home run of the year to open the fifth inning which is already one more than her total from her 2011 freshman season.
