Tech-UT: Moving right along

By Glenn Tanner - April 15, 2007

At the stretch, we're still moving along quickly (6.5 innings in about 1:45) and Texas Tech leads Texas 2-1.

The Red Raiders grabbed the lead in the fifth when Ben Baker walked, moved to second on a sac bunt, and scored on Kyle Martin's single.

Martin is an unlikely star of the game so far. In the first two games of the series, the little freshman was 0-for-6 with five strikeouts. Today, he doubled in the first, gave the Red Raiders the lead with his RBI single in the fifth, then preserved the lead in the bottom of the fifth when he leaped high and snared a line drive to strand a runner at second.

Though he's on the hook for the loss, Texas starter Joe Krebs had a good start, pitching a career-high six innings, allowing five hits, a walk, and only one earned run while fanning six. Closer Randy Boone came on to start the seventh for the Bovines.

Tech starter Colt Hynes has been even better, though. The soft-tossing lefty has allowed only four hits and a walk in six innings and has whiffed five.
