Former players excited to see Red Raiders in College World Series

OMAHA, NE (KCBD) -

Scott Holzhauer and Marco Cunningham are among several former Red Raider baseball players in Omaha, soaking up their alma mater's first appearance in the College World Series.

"It's real exciting to be here and see them," Holzhauer, a 2nd baseman with Tech from '99-'00, said. "To know what it's like to be them, it's like we're experiencing this with them."

Cunningham was teammates with Holzhauer in 1999. He batted leadoff and played centerfield for a Texas Tech team that made the NCAA's, but lost in the Regionals to Rice.

Both former players believe the Red Raiders are capable of bouncing back after their heartbreaking 3-2 loss to TCU on Sunday.

"The arms have been awesome," Cunningham said. "Hopefully they'll continue to keep throwing the way they're throwing."

"We gotta get bunts down. We gotta hit the ball when we have runners in scoring position. Simple baseball stuff. If they do that there's no telling how far they'll go. It's college baseball. Anything can happen."

The Red Raiders play Ole Miss on Tuesday at 2 p.m. The winner plays the loser of TCU-Virginia. The loser between Tech and Ole Miss is eliminated.

"First time here I'm sure there's tons of emotions," Holzhauer said. "But it's exciting to see the guys out there having fun. We'll get 'em tomorrow."
