INSIDE THE IOWA STATE SERIES
Texas Tech will look to continue its success against Iowa State this weekend as the Red Raiders are 22-13 all-time against the Cyclones, including 6-1 under head coach Shanon Hays. The Red Raiders enter the series having won 13 of the last 16 contests against Iowa State, including three of the last four in Ames where Tech is 9-8 all-time. Tech's current five-game winning streak against the Cyclones is the longest for either team in the series and current streak against Big 12 opponents.
The Red Raiders return to Rocky Johnson Field next weekend to close their home slate against No. 6 Texas. The series will begin with a 7 p.m. first pitch April 26 followed by 4 p.m. and 12 p.m. starts the next two days. Texas Tech concludes the regular season May 2-4 at No. 19 Baylor.
KING DELIVERS IN NEW ROLE AS DP
In only her second career start as a Red Raider, Katibeth King made quite an impact on the Texas Tech lineup last Sunday against No. 1 Oklahoma. The sophomore, who also started as the designated player in Saturday's second game, connected on a pair of home runs - a two-run shot in the third and then a three-run blast in the sixth - en route to finishing 2-for-3 with five RBI. It was not just King's first-ever multiple home run game for King but also her first career home run period as a Red Raider. She entered the series with just two hits and one RBI in her career.
