• The Aggies have now won seven-straight in Lubbock as Tech is just 4-14 at home against A&M.
• A&M's nine runs in each game marked its most against Tech since taking a 10-6 victory on May 1, 2010 in Lubbock.
• The Red Raiders had not previously been shut out by the Aggies at home since the first-ever game in the series which was an 11-0 loss in the first game of an April 3, 1996 doubleheader.

• Texas Tech is now 6-9 against ranked opponents this year as the Red Raiders have now dropped three-straight to top 25 teams.
• Tech's loss in the second game marked only its second in middle games of series this year. Its other loss came in a 2-1 decision at Texas on March 7.

• Tech had only given up six or more runs three times prior to the series. The Red Raiders are now 1-4 when doing so this season.
• Tech had not previously lost back-to-back games since falling in a midweek two-game set at Texas on March 6-7. The Red Raiders had played 20 games since that point.

Adriana Perez
• Perez connected on her team-leading 14th home run of the year with a three-run shot in the fifth inning of the series opener. The junior is now two home runs shy of Sandy James' school record total from last year.

Sandy James
• James drove in a pair of runs in the series opener off a 1-for-2 performance at the plate that included two walks. It was her ninth multiple-RBI game of the year.
