LAWRENCE, KS— The Red Raider softball team found themselves back in the win column with a 6-1 win over Kansas on Saturday.

Texas Tech started the ball game with a bang in the top of the 1st. Ellie Bailey cranked her Big 12-leading 16th home run to put the Red Raiders in control. However, Kansas would rebuttal, by scoring a run in the bottom half of that inning. Both teams would stay tied going into the 4th inning.

In that inning, Blythe would hit a three-run home run to give the Red Raiders a lead that they would never look back from. Texas Tech would pick up their seventh road victory of the year behind Blythe’s four RBI.
