Monreal, Cloud life Tech past UT-Pan American 6-5

LUBBOCK, Texas - Junior right fielder Kellen Monreal delivered a clutch two-out RBI single in the bottom of the seventh and Brian Cloud pitched 2 1/3 flawless innings to lift Texas Tech to a 6-5 win over UT-Pan American in the night cap of a split doubleheader at Dan Law Field.

The win coupled with Tech's earlier 14-3 rout of Southern Utah gives the Red Raiders a perfect 2-0 record on the season and the first two career wins for skipper Dan Spencer.  Texas Tech returns to action at 3 p.m. on Saturday when they host the Southern Utah Thunderbirds.

Texas Tech's 5-3 lead slipped away in the top of the seventh as the Broncos were able to take advantage of freshman reliever Louis Head.  Head issued a pair of leadoff walks to start the inning and the Broncos were able to turn them into runs on an RBI groundout by Andrew Perez and an RBI single by Jose Mendoza.  With the go-ahead run at second, Tech quickly turned to its bullpen for senior RHP Brian Cloud.  Cloud was able to strikeout Ryan Vest to end the inning and keep the score tied at five.

The Tech offense went to work in the bottom of the seventh as leadoff and pinch hitter Logan Brown reached on a walk and moved to second on a balk.  Junior right fielder Kellen Monreal was able to drive Brown home with a clutch two-out line drive that split the shortstop and third baseman and gave Tech a 6-5 lead.

That was enough for Cloud.

Cloud (1-0) faced the minimum over the next two innings and recorded three strikeouts to earn what was just his second career win as a Red Raider. 

After falling behind 2-1 in the top of the fourth, the Red Raiders bounced back with four runs in the bottom half of the inning to take a 5-2 lead.  Sophomore designated hitter Jeremy Mayo delivered the big hit as he cleared the bases with a double to the scoreboard in right center.  The three RBIs matched his career high set last year against Kansas State.

Sophomore left-hander Robbie Kilcrease earned a no-decision despite a very solid outing.  Kilcrease pitched five innings and allowed three runs on five hits and struckout five.  David DeLeon was tagged with the loss for UTPA as he gave up one run in just a 1/3 of an inning.
