Texas Tech Downs UTEP, 8-0, in Five Frames

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech scored six runs in the fifth inning to run-rule UTEP, 8-0, on a cold and windy Friday afternoon at Rocky Johnson Field.

The Miners (3-12) tallied only two hits, a double by Cortney Smith in the first inning and a single by Mallorie Cross in the fifth. The Red Raiders (9-7) registered eight hits, as Susan Welborn, after coming off an injury, used her first at bat of 2017 to hit a solo home run in the second inning for the game’s first run.

Erika Harrawood (1-3) started the contest, throwing 4.0 frames and tallying three strikeouts. After allowing Welborn’s homer, Harrawood would strikeout the next three batters to get out of the second inning.

Kierra Miles knocked in Raina O’Neal in the third, giving the Red Raiders a 2-0 edge. It was after a scoreless fourth when the wheels came off for the Miners. Texas Tech scored six runs on two hits and three errors committed by the UTEP defense to claim the victory.

Kassidy Scott (5-4) earned the win as she threw 5.0 innings on 51 pitches. Scott didn’t walk anyone nor tally a strikeout in the solid outing.

Up Next

UTEP will continue the Jeannine McHaney Memorial Classic on Saturday as it takes on Wichita State (10:30 a.m. CT) and Texas Tech again (3:30 p.m.).
