Smith Ks 10, TCU Advances in Big 12 Winner's Bracket

No. 2 seed TCU scores 7 to beat Texas Tech Friday

Russell Smith pitched six innings of two-run ball, striking out 10, and No. 2 seed TCU beat No. 3 seed Texas Tech 7-2 on Friday in the Big 12 Tournament.

The game was originally scheduled for Thursday before getting postponed due to weather. Texas Tech (36-14) has a quick turnaround, 35 minutes, before facing Kansas State. The winner will play the Horned Frogs (38-16) on Saturday.

Porter Brown and Zach Humphreys hit back-to-back doubles in the first to give TCU a 1-0 lead, and Humphreys scored on a sacrifice fly by Hunter Wolfe.
