Army drops NCAA regional opener to Texas Tech

Anthony LoRicco worked his way out of trouble in the first two innings of Army’s Lubbock regional game against host Texas Tech.

LoRicco recorded a strikeout to end both innings and limit the damage to one run as Army took a 2-1 lead in the top of the third inning.

Cal Conley’s two-run, third-inning home run woke up No. 8 Texas Tech’s offense. Conley and Braxton Fulford, who were both stranded runners with strikeouts in the early stages, added solo home runs off LoRicco as Army fell 6-3 in its NCAA opener.

Texas Tech reached the 2019 College World Series with an opening win over Army in Lubbock.

Senior right fielder Jeremiah Adams had two hits, including a no-doubt, solo home run in the seventh inning, for Army (28-24).

Tim Simoes dropped a two-out bunt down the third-base line to score Kevin Debrule, who doubled, to give Army the game’s first run in the top of the first inning.

Hunter Meade’s hustle generated a run in the third inning. Meade stole second base and swiped third base on Anthony Giachin’s strikeout and scored on catcher Fulford’s throwing error.

Meade tried to turn a single and an error by right fielder Easton Murrell into a run but he was cut down at home for the second out of the fifth inning.

LoRicco allowed six runs in six innings. LoRicco’s first 1-2-3 inning came in the sixth inning. He struck out six and allowed eight hits.
