Tech baseball completes sweep
Louisiana Tech scored four runs in as many innings and held off a late rally to complete a three-game series sweep over Alabama A&M with a close 4-3 victory Sunday afternoon at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.
Tech (13-27) plated two runs in the fourth and one run in both the sixth and seventh innings, but it was two unearned runs by Alabama A&M (17-28) in the top of the eighth that made it a much closer one-run ball game in Sunday’s series finale.
