Red Raiders use 7-run 8th inning to top Baylor

WACO, TX (KCBD) -

Locked in another pitchers' duel, Texas Tech trailed 1-0 entering the 8th inning Sunday afternoon against Baylor. That's when the Red Raiders struck for seven runs and escaped Waco with a win in the series finale, 7-1.

The late-inning rally was fueled by a huge Baylor error. Lane Kelly dropped a routine fly ball that allowed two runs to score, giving Tech a 2-1 lead. Catcher Hunter Redman followed with bases-clearing, three-run double that broke the game open, 5-1, before two additional runs scored to finish off a seven-run inning.

Tech improves to 16-5 overall and notched its first Big 12 win of the season (1-2) while Baylor falls to 10-9 overall and 2-1 in the conference.

Junior pitcher Corey Taylor (3-0) pitched four scoreless innings in relief to pick up his third win of the season.

Texas Tech is back in action on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. against Stephen F. Austin for a two-game midweek series, concluding with a 2 p.m. game on Wednesday.

The Red Raiders return to Big 12 play next weekend against TCU in Fort Worth.
