Tech-UT: Not Tech's Day

By Glenn Tanner - April 14, 2007

Texas Tech is off to a reeeeeeeeeally bad start today. They've already added another notch in their loss column, and now they're behind 5-0 after one inning in the regularly scheduled game.

The Josh Scofield that pitched so well last weekend against Kansas State didn't show up today for Tech. The Josh Scofield with the 6+ ERA did. Though Texas sent three consecutive lefties to the plate against the lefty Scofield, it was 3-0 when they finished. Jordan Danks led off with a triple and scored on Kyle Russell's single. Then Chance Wheeless lofted a big fly up into the strong wind, which easily carried the ball over the right field wall. Brad Suttle followed with a single, and the Tech defense didn't help Scofield. Preston Clark lofted an easy fly to center, but Doug Thennis muffed it. After a sac bunt moved both runners into scoring position, Russell Moldenhauer drilled a single up the middle to score both.

That was it for Scofield -- he faced seven hitters and recorded one out, thanks to that sac bunt, and his ERA jumped from 6.23 to 7.34.

Paul Gonzales came on in relief, and did much better, getting the final two outs of the inning.
