Tech stays within striking distance due to reliever Owen Brolsma.With one out, pinch-hitter Kevin Keyes rips a triple to the gap in right-center that just eluded Tanner Rindels. Brolsma came in to take over for Leverton, and enticed a pop-up and a comebacker to end the inning.4-2 UT going to the bottom of the eighth and the meat of Tech's order up to

UT finally chased Bettis in the top of the seventh after loading the bases with two outs on two singles and a walk. James Leverton comes on to strike out Jordan Danks to end the threat.Tech gets the leadoff runner on as Tanner Rindels is hit by a pitch and he eventually stole second. But three straight fly balls, two by reliever Cole Green, keeps Rindels at second, making him the sixth baserunner stranded in scoring position for the Red Raiders.4-2 UT going to the

For the second time in this game, RBI leader Roger Kieschnick comes up with one out and two runners on, and again hits into an inning-ending double play.He is now hitting just 2-for-15 with a home run, two RBIs and four walks in conference play. He is 0-for-7 with a walk in this series alone. Gotta have more production from the cleanup spot.Bettis is getting the job done now, but needs some offensive help.4-2 UT going to the bottom of the

Shepherd draws a leadoff walk to begin the fourth but is erased on a fielder's choice, then Hernandez grounds into a 6-4-3 double play to end the inning. Bettis, however, was in a three-ball count to two of the three batters.Tech gets a two-out double by Rindels, who steals third. But Rueda leaves him there on a line drive to short. The Red Raiders have now left a runner in scoring position in each of the first four innings. Can't waste those opportunities.4-2 Longhorns going to the

Bettis needs just five pitches to get through the top of the third, which probably adds another inning to how deep he can go.Tech goes almost as quietly, getting a two-out walk by Kieschnick and a passed ball, but Thennis flies to center to end the inning.Still 4-2 UT going to the

Bettis had a much better second inning, going thorugh the Longhorns in order.Tech took advantge by cutting the lead in half. A single by Doug Thennis and a bloop double by Monk Kreder set up a sacrifice fly by Taylor Ashby, and with two outs Willie Rueda singled to right to plate Kreder.4-2 UT going to the

Everyone was confident with Chad Bettis going on the hill today for the Red Raiders, but he apparently caught a dose of what everyone else had on Thursday.He got through the first two batters on a groundout and a caught stealing after he'd hit Travis Tucker. But a pair of two-out, two-run homers by Brandon Belt and Preston Clark suddenly put the Longhorns up 4-0. He continued to struggle by walking Tant Shepherd and Cameron Rupp before getting David Hernandez on a grounder.

A few loose ends from Friday.Tech is now 6-4 all-time against Texas when dropping the first game of a Big 12 series to the Longhorns. The previous five times the Red Raiders have won that second game, they are 4-0-1 in the third game to win the series.Two Tech players continued significant hitting streaks. Chris Hall tied his career high by extending his to 11 games, and Willie Rueda added to his career-high 9-game hit streak.Tech-Texas lineupsTexas1. Michael Torres ss2. Travis Tucker 2b3.

And what a difference a switch in pitching makes as the Red Raiders even the series with the Longhorns at a game apiece, 7-5.The bullpen was stellar today as James Leverton and Zach Stewart combine for 32/3 innings of relief, allowing just one run on two hits and two walks with three strikeouts.The UT bullpen explodes, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks in three innings, and that helped Tech take the lead and the win.
