Gutierrez homers twice, Texas Tech cruises to 18-3 win

  Eric Gutierrez homered twice and hit first career grand slam with 6 RBI.

DALLAS -- Texas Tech scored early and often during an 18-3 victory against Dallas Baptist during its final midweek and regular-season road game of the season on Tuesday afternoon at Horner Ballpark.

Sophomore first baseman Eric Gutierrez led the way with his second two-home run game of the season while belting his first career grand slam finishing with six RBI.

Freshman outfielder Stephen Smith was one of six Red Raiders with multiple hits going 2-for-3 with four runs scored and three RBI while hitting his first career home run.

Senior left-handed pitcher Jonny Drozd (6-0) earned the win pitching four scoreless innings allowing just two hits with three strikeouts. Drozd became the first Red Raider to be 6-0 in a season since 2011 (John Neely).
