Baylor Baseball Downed by No. 6 Texas Tech in Series Opener

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor baseball lost its series opener at Texas Tech 13-2 on Friday evening at Griffin Park. The Bears (19-11, 2-5) were unable to keep up with the Red Raiders (27-6, 5-2) bats that scored 13 runs on 13 hits.

In the first, T.J. Raguse led the game off with a single and scored on a Shea Langeliers double.  However, TTU countered with two runs in the bottom of the first.

Baylor bounced back with a run in the second after a Davis Wendzel leadoff walk, Richard Cunningham bunt single, Josh Bissonette sacrifice bunt and Tucker Cascadden RBI ground out. But it was the last run the BU offense was able to generate.

Texas Tech answered with five runs in each of the third and fifth innings, and another run in the sixth, to put the game out of reach.

TTU reliever Caleb Kilian (2-0) earned the win with three perfect innings and four strikeouts. BU starter Nick Lewis (3-3) took the loss, allowing seven runs on seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts in three innings.
