WOAY – After rain postponed Friday’s series opener, West Virginia baseball dropped both games of a Saturday doubleheader, 1-0 & 4-3, to Texas Tech in Morgantown.
The results mean West Virginia will have dropped a third straight conference series, following the previous two weekends where they lost two of three to both Kansas State and Oklahoma.
The first game was a defensive affair, with the Red Raiders scoring the only run of the game in the fifth inning, on a Grant Little double. West Virginia did lead for much of the second game before a brief rain delay; Texas Tech by taking the 4-3 lead in the ninth inning, and while WVU did have a runner reach third in the bottom of the frame, the Red Raiders held on for the win.
Sunday’s series finale is scheduled to start at 1 PM in Morgantown.
