The Aggies would finally get on the board in the top of third following a solo home run by Joe Ortiz.

The home run would cut Texas Tech’s lead to 3-1, but in the bottom of the third, the Red Raiders would respond with two more runs to expand their lead to 5-1.

There would be no more runs scored until the bottom of the 7th when Texas Tech would add 4 more runs to go up 9-1.
