LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The 23rd-ranked Red Raiders used a strong complete game pitching performance from Cameron Smith to knock off No. 3 Miami 4-0 to win the Coral Gables Regional on the Hurricane's home diamond.

Tech advances to the Super Regional for the first time in school history, a series they may host in Lubbock.

Tech lost an earlier opportunity in a game suspended Sunday as they led 1-0 in the 8th. Five outs from victory, the Canes scored 1 in the 8th and 1 in the 10th to win 2-1 to force a winner take all game.

Smith pitched 9 innings of 3 hit shutout ball. Tech plated 2 in the 7th to break the scoreless tie and added 2 more in the 9th.

Texas Tech opened the baseball season taking 3 of 4 from then No. 3 Indiana and they close out taking 2 of 3 from No. 3 Miami to move to the Super Regional.

2nd-seeded Tech now hosts the winner of the Florida Regional, the 4th seed from the College of Charleston at Rip Griffin Park, where Tech is 31-4 at home this season. The winner of the Super Regional heads to the College Baseball World Series.

Congrats to Tim Tadlock and the Red Raiders!

The Texas Tech Baseball team is scheduled to arrive home from Miami at 1:15 p.m. CT on Tuesday at Chaparral Jet Center (located on the EAST side of Lubbock International Airport). The public is welcome to greet the team.
