Texas Tech puts 27 runs on the board showing another reason why college baseball is terrible
Another super high scoring game in college baseball seeing the Texas Tech Red Raiders beat New Mexico 27-15 and the game was actually close.
The Red Raiders (34-11) tallied 27 runs on 27 hits, the most runs ever in a road game for Tech and the most since scoring 27 against Howard on Feb. 7, 1999. The Lobos (24-17-1) scored 15 of their own on 18 hits, as the two teams combined for the most runs in a game since Tech played Dallas Baptist on May 7, 2005. It was the most runs Tech had scored against the Lobos in the 118 meetings between the two programs, as the Red Raiders brought at least one run across home plate in seven different innings in the series finale.
College Baseball is so whacky. If this isn’t the case to have them using wooden bats instead of aluminum then I don’t know what it would take. It’s not like the game was a total blowout either. New Mexico the team they were playing scored 15 runs. Who the hell is pitching in this game? Is this a game you can even be proud of afterward?
I don’t think I would be too happy if I was the pitching coach at either of these schools. These are D-I colleges and this is the crap they get to pitch. At one point this game was almost tied 14-13. That should be embarrassing def not celebrated.
