Texas Tech walks off against Columbia in regional opener

  Eric Gutierrez finished 1-for-5 with his only hit driving in the game-winning run.

CORAL GABLES, Fla.  -- Eric Gutierrez's one-out hit scored Zach Davis with the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Friday, and Texas Tech defeated Columbia, 3-2, in the first game of the Coral Gables Regional.

Davis entered the game as a pinch runner for Stephen Smith, who led off the inning with a walk. A sacrifice moved Davis to second, and he reached third base when Lions second baseman Will Savage misplayed a grounder to put runners at the corners.

Jonny Drodz (7-0) pitched the final 3.2 innings for the Red Raiders (41-18), who advanced to a second-round game on Saturday night. Thomas Crispi (3-2) walked three and gave up two hits in 2.1 innings.
