Kevin Bazzell delivered a two-out walk-off single in the ninth inning, lifting Texas Tech to a 10-9 victory over Oklahoma on Thursday night in the Big 12 Tournament.
The Red Raiders (38-20) scored three runs in the ninth to defeat the Sooners (31-25) on a night when the TTU pitching staff issued nine walks, threw three wild pitches and hit one batter.
Bazzell’s winning hit was set up by consecutive RBI-singles from Tracer Lopez and Nolen Hester. After Hester’s hit, Gage Harrelson kept the inning alive with a single — marking the second time in the game that Lopez, Hester and Harrelson had consecutive hits. Bazzell followed Harrelson with his only hit in five at-bats.
Texas Tech advances to a semifinal on Saturday, facing the winner of the Oklahoma-Oklahoma State loser-out game, which is Friday.
Texas Tech trailed 9-5 after Oklahoma’s three-run sixth inning in which the Sooners had only one hit.
Dylan Maxcey’s two-run home run in the seventh inning got the Red Raiders within 9-7.
Josh Sanders (3-1) pitched three perfect innings for the win. Braxton Douthit (4-6) took the loss.
