On Saturday, the Texas Tech baseball team staged an amazing comeback, scoring nine runs in the top of the ninth to tie Baylor, 13-13, only to have the Bears score a run in the bottom half to win. What I found particularly impressive was how Texas Tech got five straight hits to keep the rally alive after there were two outs, with three of the batters facing two strikes in the count. Talk about batting under pressure! Below, I have copied and annotated the official play-by-play sheet, which you can click to enlarge (red signifies outs, green signifies hits after two outs). You can also access the play-by-play sheet and an article on the game here.
