TCU beats Texas Tech at College World Series

TCU wins another 1-run contest

OMAHA, Neb. – TCU showed again that it knows how to win close games.

The Horned Frogs beat Big 12 rival Texas Tech 3-2 in the College World Series on Sunday for their fifth win in six one-run games in the NCAA tournament.

This time Boomer White drove in the go-ahead run against Tech closer Jonny Drozd in the bottom of the eighth inning after TCU had fallen behind in the top half.

“That’s the kind of baseball we’ve played all year,” TCU coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “I’m not telling you I’m comfortable with it, but these guys are. They don’t panic a bit. It’s just, hey, let’s put together some good at-bats and see what happens. I just try to stay out of the way.”

TCU (48-16), the No. 7 national seed, advanced to a game Tuesday against Virginia, a 2-1 winner over Mississippi on Sunday night. Texas Tech (45-20), in the CWS for the first time, will play Ole Miss (46-20).

Mike Papi’s RBI double into right-center with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning gave Virginia (50-14) the victory.

The Cavaliers’ win came after Nathan Kirby and Artie Lewicki combined for the first one-hitter at the CWS since 1983.
