AUSTIN — John McMillon could smell the sweep in the fourth inning.
McMillon, who usually is in a closer role for the Red Raiders, started the four-run, two-out rally in fourth and then provided a crucial insurance home run in the eighth to cement the No. 4 Red Raiders; 8-5 win over the No. 21 Texas at UCFU Dish-Falk Field.
With the win, Texas Tech improved to 17-4 overall and 3-0 in Big 12 play. The Longhorns dropped to 13-9 and 0-3.
