The 25th-ranked Texas Tech team delivered a sound defeat to Stephen F. Austin on Tuesday, claiming a 20 to 4 victory at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park. Wednesday's game did not go as well for the Red Raiders.
Chris Sadberry, a Holliday, Texas native, helped guide the Red Raiders to their lone victory of the Houston College Classic, which was also their first victory over the Rice Owls since 1996.
The No. 26 ranked Red Raiders dipped to 8-2 on the season, suffering its second shutout of the season. Houston remains undefeated with an 8-0 pitching record.
This comes after freshman Ryan Long batted .500 with three consecutive multi-hit games, leading Tech to a three-game series sweep over Oral Roberts.
They become the ninth and 10th Freshmen All-Americans in school history, while this season marks just the third time in Tech history where a pair of Red Raiders received Freshmen All-American honors.
