Tech-UT: Everyone on Tech is hating Austin

By Glenn Tanner - April 14, 2007

Texas again pounded Texas Tech pitching, winning the second game of the series 10-2.

Adrian Alaniz shut down the Red Raiders over seven innings, and for the second game in row, every Longhorn starter reached base at least once.

Tech slugger Roger Kieschnick did break up the shutout in the seventh with his second homer of the weekend, but Texas answered that with two runs in the bottom of the inning. The Red Raiders actually got their first two hitters in the eighth on base, but three consecutive backward K's from reliever Hunter Harris ended that threat.

Alaniz was outstanding again for Texas. He allowed only three hits and one walk in seven innings and whiffed seven. In his ninth win of the season, he lowered his ERA to 2.29 and his batting average against to .197.

Offensively, the Longhorns pounded out 14 hits, including six that went for extra bases. Preston Clark had three hits, and the 1-2-3 hitters in the lineup (Jordan Danks, Kyle Russell, and Chance Wheeless) each had two hits. Russell Moldenhauer also chipped in two hits and three ribbies.

In two games, Texas Tech has looked overmatched, but tomorrow's a new day, and Texas has had trouble on Sundays this season -- half of the Longhorns' 10 losses have come on Sundays.
