Friday thoughts: Derby, San Diego State shut down Texas Tech

  Bubba Derby didn't allow a run and struck out 11 Texas Tech batters in eight innings.

It’s not always easy being one of the hunted, and Tim Tadlock’s Red Raiders are finding that out the hard way so far this season, especially the past couple of weeks. Tech went on the road last weekend to California and got swept by Fullerton. Well, the Red Raiders didn’t start this weekend in good fashion either, losing 9-0 to San Diego State with right-hander Bubba Derby leading the way.

Derby, who has one of the best names in college baseball, struck out 11, didn’t walk anyone and allowed just three hits in eight shutout innings. D1Baseball.com's Shotgun Spratling was in attendance at Tony Gwynn Stadium and said Derby was up to 94 with his fastball, and did a terrific job of locating that pitch around the plate. Derby, Spratling said, also showcased good command of a pair of breaking balls.

As for Tech, righthander Ryan Moseley had a tough start against the Aztecs, striking out just three and allowing six runs (four earned) on seven hits in five innings. Texas Tech has now lost four of its last six contests.
