In the highest-scoring game of the weekend, that could have seen even more than the 18 runs that were scored, Texas Tech Baseball bounced back from its Friday night loss to Tennessee to end the weekend with back-to-back wins over Nebraska and Oregon. 

The Red Raiders handed Oregon its first loss after the Ducks had scored wins over Oklahoma and Baylor earlier this weekend
