#18 Rice 15, Louisiana Tech 2
RUSTON, La. - (LT Media Relations) The No. 18 Rice Owls (32-15) recorded season-highs in several offensive categories and defeated Louisiana Tech (16-33), 15-2, in front of 904 fans Wednesday night at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park in Ruston.
Rice started scoring early and never let off as the Owls scored runs in seven of the nine innings played Wednesday and put up season highs in hits, runs, doubles and runs batted in to take the season series over the Bulldogs.
"Rice is good and their midweek arms are so much better than everybody else's midweek arms, so it is hard to get anything going on them," head coach Wade Simoneaux. "They pitch, play great defense and it is hard to score many runs on them. All of our focus has to be on Dallas Baptist now, and we have to play it one day at a time."
