Aggie baseball fall to Red Raiders in 12 innings

NMSU Athletics
New Mexico State

POSTED: Saturday, March 8, 2014 - 10:06pm

UPDATED: Sunday, March 9, 2014 - 12:02am

The New Mexico State baseball team fell 8-7 in 12 innings to No. 30 Texas Tech, Saturday, March 8 at Rip Griffin Park in Lubbock, Texas. The Aggies fall to 7-8 on the year, while the Red Raiders move to 13-3.

NM State posted 15 hits as a team with leftfielder Kyle Kilgore leading the offensive charge going 3-of-5 at the dish and scoring two runs. Third baseman Derrick Umphres and right fielder Michael Paulson had two hits each to go along with one RBI and one run scored.

The Aggies used four pitchers with left-hander Bob Kraft getting the start posting one strikeout in three innings of work. Sophomore righty Zach Freeman was credited with the loss as he gave up the go-ahead run in the bottom of the 12th inning. Freeman is now 1-2 on the year and has work 14.2 innings, more than any other reliever on the pitching staff. Texas Tech’s Dalton Brown earned his first win of the year as he was in the game when his team took the lead.

Junior right-hander Riley Barr had the longest outing for the Aggies working 5.0 innings while giving up only two earned runs. It was Barr’s seventh outing of the year, making more appearances than any other Aggie pitcher this season.

NM State was the first team on the board scoring on a one-out Michael Paulson single to centerfield in the top of the second inning that brought in left fielder Kyle Kilgore, who got on with a single through the right side. The Aggie lead didn’t last too long as the Red Raiders scored two runs in the bottom of the second, one in the bottom of the third and two more in the bottom of the fourth to take a 5-1 lead.

After scoring a run in the top of the fifth the Aggies trailed 5-2 heading into the six inning but took advantage of sloppy pitching to take a 7-5 lead. Junior Kyle Kilgore started the inning with a lead-off double, which was followed by an Umphres single for the first run of the inning. Umphres advanced to second on a balk, and eventually scored when the next three Aggie batters go on base with walks. Senior Michael Medina picked up an RBI when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and second baseman Jory Goldstrom tallied an RBI single to bring in Blackstone, who got on with a walk. Designated hitter Joseph Koerper would be the final benefactor of Red Raider pitching as he tallied a base on balls with the bases loaded to bring in pinch hitter Kyle Graf.

NM State gave up a run on one hit after giving up a lead-off walk and throwing a wild pitch in the bottom of the sixth and Texas Tech tied the game in the bottom of the ninth scoring one run on two hits and one error.

The Aggies posted five hits from the seventh inning through the conclusion of the game and saw the bottom of 12th inning start with a lead-off triple. That lead-off runner eventually crossed the plate on a sacrifice fly to right field. The Aggies played the 3 hour and 45 minute game as a team using 22 players on the afternoon.

NM State concludes the four-game series with the nationally ranked Red Raiders, Sunday, March 9 at 12 p.m. (MT) in Lubbock, Texas. Live stats will be available free of charge at www.NMStateSports.com.
