TEXAS TECH TEAM NOTES
The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for Texas Tech against Big 12 foes, its longest in conference play since late in the 2008 season.
A win over Iowa State would have tied the Texas Tech school record for consecutive Big 12 victories of six from 1998.
The loss dropped Texas Tech to 16-6 at Rocky Johnson Field this year and 3-5 during Big 12 play.
The loss marked the first time Texas Tech had lost when scoring nine or more runs since falling to South Florida, 15-9, on Feb. 27, 2009.
Texas Tech surrendered a season-high 16 hits to the Cyclones. Iowa State's 13 runs were the second-most by a Texas Tech opponent this year as well.
