The Texas Tech baseball team opened the 2018 Red & Black Series with a 22-run outburst with the Red squad taking game one of the five-game set 17-5 in seven innings Thursday afternoon at Rip Griffin Park.

In game 1 Josh Jung appeared to already be in mid season form as he finished 5-5 with a home run, a double, as well as 5 RBI in the contest. Jung is already making a pretty big case as to why he should and probably will be a very high draft choice in the upcoming draft.

Sophomore Dylan Neuse and freshman Jose Gonzalez also went deep for a Red team that racked up 14 hits on the day.

Sophomore Parker Kelly accounted for the lone home run for the black squad. He also posted a multi-hit game, adding a single in the first, to lead the Black squad.

The Texas Tech Baseball Twitter put out a nice little recap of game 1 in case you weren't able to catch it.

The Black team will look to even the series in Game two, which is slated for 3:30 p.m. on Friday, November 2nd, at Rip Griffin Park.
