It’s been a historic season for Texas Tech baseball. For the first time in the program’s history, the team has gone undefeated in Big 12 play. They’re currently on a 26-game winning streak and are ranked No. 2 in the nation. But what’s even more impressive is how they’ve done it. With a mix of experienced veterans and talented newcomers, the team has meshed perfectly to form one of the most dominant college baseball teams in recent memory. And much of their success can be attributed to their use of technology. From video analysis to performance-tracking data, the Red Raiders have made use of every tool at their disposal to help them get an edge on the competition. In this article, we will take a look at how technology has helped Texas Tech baseball achieve such greatness and how other programs can learn from their example.
How Texas Tech Won 29 Games in a Row
It was a Texas Tech baseball season for the ages. The Red Raiders won 29 games in a row, a school record, en route to their first ever College World Series appearance. How did they do it?
The key to Tech’s success was their pitching staff, which was anchored by future MLB star Alaniz. The Red Raiders also had a potent offence, led by third baseman (and future MLB All-Star) Josh Jung. But ultimately, it was the team’s never-say-die attitude that helped them win so many close games.
tech didn’t have an easy road to Omaha; they had to win a tough regional tournament and then survive a heated super regional series against archrival Texas. But when they got to the College World Series, they were ready to compete with the best of the best.
In the end, Texas Tech’s magical season came up just short of a National Championship, as they lost to Vanderbilt in the finals. But for a program that had never been to the College World Series before, it was an unforgettable ride.
The Team’s Key Players
The Red Raiders have several key players that have contributed to their success this season. Shortstop Connor Beck is one of the team’s best hitters, batting .345 with four home runs and 33 RBIs. He’s also been solid defensively, making just four errors in 57 games. Outfielder Dylan Neuse has also been a key player for Tech, batting .321 with eight home runs and 41 RBIs. He’s also been very good defensively, committing just one error in 63 games. Starting pitcher Davis Martin has been the team’s best pitcher, going 10-1 with a 2.52 ERA in 16 starts. He’s struck out 103 batters in 103 innings pitched and has held opponents to a .229 batting average.
Texas Tech has had a very successful season, winning the Big 12 regular season title with a record of 47-17. They went on to win the Big 12 tournament, defeating Oklahoma State in the championship game. The Red Raiders entered the NCAA tournament as the #5 overall seed and were placed in the Lubbock regional. They won their first two games against Army and Nevada before losing to Sam Houston State. The Red Raiders then won their next two games against Sam Houston State to win the regional and advance to super regionals.
In super regionals, the Red Raiders faced Duke and won the first game 9-2. They then lost the second game 5-4 before winning the third game 13-2 to advance to Omaha. In Omaha, they will face Arkansas in their first game on Sunday night.
The Road to the National Championship
In May of 2019, the Texas Tech baseball team went on an unbelievable run that took them all the way to the National Championship. It was a truly special season for the Red Raiders, and one that will be remembered for years to come. Here’s a look back at how it all unfolded.
The regular season started off strong for Tech, with the team winning 37 of their first 40 games. This included a stretch of 30 consecutive wins, which set a new school record. The Red Raiders then entered the Big 12 Tournament as the top seed, and they didn’t disappoint. They won all three games they played, including a victory over arch-rival Texas in the championship game.
This earned Tech a spot in the NCAA Tournament, where they were once again one of the top seeds. They breezed through their regional and super regional matchups, before finally facing off against Michigan in the College World Series. The Red Raiders won the first two games of the best-of-three series to claim their first ever national title.
It was an incredible ride for Texas Tech, and one that will never be forgotten by those who were able to witness it firsthand.
Why Texas Tech is the Best Team in the Country
