The West Virginia Mountaineers broke out the bats in a big way to end the Big 12 Tournament hopes of the Texas Tech Red Raiders. For the Mountaineers, this means they will play the TCU Horned Frogs today at 1:30 PM.

West Virginia’s top 5 hitters haunted the Red Raiders pitchers all night to the tune of 11 hits in 23 at bats with 10 runs and 6 RBIs. Leadoff hitter Braden Zarbinsky had 3 hits and 4 runs in 5 at-bats. First basemen Marques Inman also had 3 hits in 5 at-bats with 1 run scored and 2 RBIs.

Senior starting pitcher BJ Myers threw 4-innings to give him 305 innings pitched, the most in program history.

The Mountaineers will face TCU at 1:30 PM today in the next round of the Big 12 Baseball Tournament. Since the tournament is double-elimination, if the Mountaineers win they will need to beat TCU again at 7:30.

If the Mountaineers are able defeat TCU twice, the championship game will be held at 1 PM on Sunday.
