Texas Tech started its season winning 3-of-4 games over third-ranked Indiana – a team that finished last season with 49 wins and in the College World Series.

With that series win and claiming three straight to finish the weekend, a lot of people across the nation have taken notice of this baseball program here in Lubbock.

Below are some links from the last couple days, including an interview from pitching coach Ray Hayward who guided the Tech pitching staff to a 1.25 ERA over the 36 innings on opening weekend.
