Grand Canyon finishes sweep of No. 21 TTU

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Trailing 5-4 heading into the top of the eighth, Grand Canyon scored a combined six runs in the final two frames to earn a 10-5 victory against No. 21 Texas Tech on Wednesday afternoon at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park in Lubbock, Texas.

With the two-game midweek sweep of the Red Raiders, the Antelopes improve to 26-19, while Texas Tech falls to 27-19.

"Another good effort," Grand Canyon head coach Andy Stankiewicz said. "Obviously it was tight, it was good to see us stay on it and win innings seven, eight and nine. We put some good at-bats together when we had to."

After Texas Tech pushed a run across in the top of the first, the Lopes answered with a run of their own in the top of the second. Greg Saenz laced a two-out double to left center, scoring Brandon Smith to knot the score at 1-1.

The Lopes put a three spot on the board in the top of the fourth to take a 4-1 advantage, as Chad De La Guerra highlighted the inning with an opposite field solo home run, his ninth of the season.

The Red Raiders scored a pair of runs in the fourth and sixth innings to take a 5-4 lead.

GCU rallied in the final two innings, scoring twice in the eighth and four times in the ninth to secure the 10-5 victory.

Ben Mauseth ripped a two-run double in the ninth, while Garrison Schwartz and Matt Haggerty both tallied RBI hits to produce Canyon's four runs.

Mick Vorhof (4-0) earned the win on the hill, tossing two innings in relief of starter Ruben Rincon. Cameron Brendel threw two shut-out innings to pick up his second save of the season.
