NCAA Baseball: NMSU unable to get on track in 7-0 loss to Texas Tech

The New Mexico State baseball team had been on fire offensively through the first eight games of the season.

But they hadn’t played anyone of Texas Tech’s caliber.

After scoring 146 runs combined in their first eight games, the Aggies were held scoreless Tuesday in Lubbock in a 7-0 loss to the third-ranked Red Raiders.

NMSU fell to 7-2 with the loss while Texas Tech improved to 6-1. The Red Raiders have now won six straight after losing their season-opener to Oregon.

It appeared NMSU might threaten Texas Tech in the top of the first. The Aggies managed to get runners on first and third with one out, but Tech managed to come up with a double play on a strikeout and throwout when the runner on first tried to take second.

The Aggies only trailed 1-0 entering the bottom of the fourth, but a Cam Warren three-run homer would give the Red Raiders a four-run cushion.

NMSU would only record five hits in the game, two of them courtesy of Logan Bottrell.

The Aggies will return home Friday for a brand new series against Delaware.
