The Red Raiders followed with five runs in the fifth, which included Burleson's second double, this time a two-out, two-run double to left-center field.

Tech junior left-handed pitcher Chris Sadberry (3-1) won his third game of the season pitching five innings allowing just one run on four hits with one strikeout and a walk.

TCU starter Tyler Alexander (3-2) took the loss going 5.1 innings allowing six runs (5 ER) on seven hits with seven strikeouts and a walk.

Seven Red Raiders had base hits, nine Tech players scored runs and six had RBI in the contest.

Third baseman Jake Barrios went 2-for-5 with an RBI, designated hitter Stephen Smith went 2-for-5 with two runs scored, freshman shortstop Ryan Long went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and a double and catcher Hunter Redman went 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI.

Junior right-handed pitcher Corey Taylor pitched three scoreless innings out of the Tech bullpen allowing just two hits and a walk with a strikeout.
