The No. 6 Texas Tech Red Raiders baseball team is putting a hurting on Kansas State in Big 12 play.
Texas Tech has scored more than 20 runs in the first two games of the series against the Wildcats. The Red Raiders won 21-4 on Friday before following with a 26-6 blowout Saturday.
The Red Raiders left Lawrence, Kan., last weekend with a bad taste in their mouths. Kansas beat Texas Tech 17-3 in the final game of the series, then Dallas Baptist beat the Red Raiders 6-5 on Tuesday.
Clearly, Texas Tech exorcised some frustration Friday and Saturday. The Red Raiders put up 20 hits in the first game of the series and had 26 on Saturday.
To put these past two games in perspective, consider this: The Kansas football team didn’t score 20 points in back-to-back Big 12 games in 2017.
Three Texas Tech players homered Saturday, including Michael Davis, who launched this shot over the centerfield fence at Rip Griffin Park to give the Red Raiders a 21-2 lead.

The Red Raiders are 28-8 overall and 7-4 in the Big 12. They close the series against Kansas State at 1 p.m. CT Sunday, play at New Mexico on Tuesday and will host Oklahoma for a three-game series next weekend.
If their offense continues at this pace, expect a lot more wins along the way.
