Rain suspends Texas Tech-Miami Regional Final


With the Red Raiders clinging to a 1-0 lead over top-seeded Miami, rain has forced Texas Tech to wait another day before making potential history.

Torrential rains throughout the game forced the umpire crew to suspend Sunday night's Regional Final at 1:02 p.m. CT Monday.

The game will pick up in the top of the 8th inning with Miami batting and nobody on base. The Red Raiders are five outs away from winning the program's first NCAA Regional Championship and advancing to the Super Regionals for the first time in team history.

After riding freshman Dylan Dusek to a 3-0 win Saturday night, the Red Raiders can thank another freshman for having them this close to history. Ryan Moseley was dominant on the mound Sunday, pitching six innings of shut-out baseball, allowing just two hits and striking out six.

As it stands Miami has been held without a run for 16+ innings against Texas Tech pitching.

The lone run came in the first when Tech's Ryan Long was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.

If Miami comes back to win this game, the two will play again 55 minutes after the conclusion of the game in a winner-take-all for the Regional Championship.
