Red Raiders eliminated with 8-0 loss to No. 24 Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – The Texas Tech baseball team was eliminated from Big 12 Championship title contention with an 8-0 loss against No. 24 Oklahoma on Friday morning at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

With the loss, eighth-seeded Texas Tech (25-30) dropped to 0-2 in pool play competition while the fourth-seeded Sooners (38-19) improved to 2-0 in Big 12 Championship play.

Red Raider starting pitcher Dominic Moreno (3-4) matched a season-high seven innings pitched while allowing just one earned run on seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks.

Oklahoma starting left-handed pitcher Dillon Overton (9-2) earned the win going five innings with five strikeouts allowing three walks and three hits while combining with two OU relievers on the shutout performance.

It marked the first time Tech had been shut out at the Big 12 Championship since 2006.

Texas Tech had four hits in the game while Brett Bell (1-for-3), Alec Humphreys (1-for-1), Tim Proudfoot (1-for-3) and Bryant Burleson (1-for-4) all had base hits and Burleson extended his hit streak to 13 games.

A two-out rally for the Sooners in the fourth inning ended a scoreless tie as OU had an RBI single up the middle by designated hitter Colt Bickerstaff to give the Sooners a 1-0 advantage.

It remained 1-0 through seven innings as Moreno held the Sooners to 1-for-10 with runners on base while leaving runners stranded in the third, fourth, sixth and seventh innings. Oklahoma left nine runners on base in the game.

OU broke the game open late with two runs – one earned – on two hits in the eighth inning and then pushing across five runs in the ninth inning on five base hits.

Texas Tech will play its final game of the 2013 season on Saturday with a 9 a.m. first pitch against Baylor at Bricktown Ballpark.
