Cory Large is out after 68 pitches. Paul Gonzalez is in.Large walked Yerby to open the inning, got Houk on a groundout that Seefeld had to pick out of the turf, then walked Scott Cline to bring on the change. Two on, one out in the third, trailing 4-1.gw

Tech got a run back in the bottom of the second on a walk and stolen base by Roger Kieschnick and an RBI single by Doug Thennis to make it 4-1.But it could have been more.Taylor Ashby followed with a single to right, and Willie Rueda got a two-out infield hit to load the bases. But Chris Hall took a bad hack at a pitch way outside to strike out and end the inning.Going to the third.gw

Another Tech error leads to three runs in the second. Central Arkansas leads 4-0.Scott Cline singles and goes to third on an errant pickoff throw by pitcher Cory Large. Tye Throneberry singles and Bobby Pritchett strikes out. but a Payton Seelinger single and a triple to center by Graham Martin makes it 4-0.Two things after the defensive switches. Seefeld couldn't handle a wide throw by Large, and on the ball Martin hit, Thennis initially came in on the ball and it carried over his head to the wall.Going to the bottom of the second.gw

Joey Kenworthy missed two bunt opportunities and ended up grounding into a double play up the middle. Jason Seefeld watched strike three on the outer edge of the plate.Going to the top of the second.gw

Central Arkansas gets a run in the first on two errors on the first batter of the game.Payton Seelinger grounded to third but third baseman Jason Seefeld threw the ball away, and first baseman Doug Thennis threw it into right field trying to get him at second. Seelinger wound up at third and scored on a groundout by Graham Martin.Chris Davis doubled off the left field wall but was stranded as Jonathan Yerby struck out and Chris Houk lined to right.Going to the bottom of the first.gw

Just a few minutes before first pitch. Umpires have just arrived and the coaches are meeting at homep plate.Second baseman Joey Kenworthy is in the lineup at second base and hitting in the two-hole. Kenworthy had to come out of Sunday's game against Rice after a home plate collision (and he still hasn't been tagged). It was thought some bruised ribs or some sort of midsection injury would keep him out today, but the little dude is a tough one.

It's just over two hours to the first pitch of Texas Tech's much-delayed home opener at Dan Law Field. Tech will take on Central Arkansas today at 6 p.m. and tomorrow at 1 p.m.I know there are some mixed feelings about this squad. And, like many of you, I haven't seen much outside of practice to tell what's there and what's not other than listening to the radio and reading box scores. So I'm interested to see what's there today.

Texas Tech finished off its first weekend of the 2008 season with a big win, pounding host UTSA 16-6 at the UTSA Baseball Classic (thanks for letting them in, here's a 10-run first inning).There was plenty of good to come out of the series. Sure it was good to see the team put up double-digit run and hit totals against Army and UTSA, and it was good to see they were able to get past the opening-day struggles and win two of their next three.

Like most of you, I listened on the radio and followed gametracker.In one word, eeeeshhhh!!!The pitching was great. That pitching right there will win you 2/3 of your games. That pitching right there will make you a top 5 Big 12 team at the end of the year.That hitting was horrible. That hitting right there was a reason why Tech finished last in 2007. And the funny thing is, hitting was the least of concerns for the Red Raiders going into the season. Coaches were focused more on pitching and defense.
