Texas Tech Softball Closes Out Regular Season at Oklahoma
LUBBOCK, Texas (Texas Tech Press Release) – Texas Tech will look to add to its postseason resume this weekend when the Red Raiders close the regular season with a three-game series at No. 12 Oklahoma. The Red Raiders are coming off wins in each of their last three Big 12 series and will be looking to solidify a top-four finish in the conference standings. The series gets underway at 6:30 p.m. Friday evening at Marita Hynes Field in Norman and continues with 2 p.m. and 12 p.m. first pitches on Saturday and Sunday. The series can be seen in its entirety as Friday and Saturday’s games will air on FOX Sports Southwest Plus with the finale on FOX Sports Southwest.
ON THE HORIZON
Texas Tech will learn its postseason fate on Sun., May 11, during the NCAA Selection Show on ESPN2. The Red Raiders will be looking to advance to an NCAA Regional for the fourth time in the past five years and the sixth time in school history.
OKLAHOMA all-time series
Texas Tech will look for its first series victory all-time over Oklahoma this weekend as the Red Raiders are 7-33 all-time against the Sooners, including a 4-16 mark in games played in Norman. Tech enters this weekend’s series having dropped each of its last four contests against the Sooners after OU swept the series a year ago in Lubbock. The Red Raiders nearly came away with the series victory in their last trip to Norman in 2012 after picking up a 5-4 victory in the middle game. Oklahoma bounced back to take a 4-1 win in the finale, however. The 2013 series marks the only time the Red Raiders have been swept by OU under Shanon Hays as the fifth-year head coach is 3-8 all-time against the Sooners.
