Oklahoma State's three-game series at Texas Tech had an unusual Saturday-Sunday-Monday format, but it allowed your humble correspondent to catch the finale this afternoon. After some high scoring in the first two games -- a 5-0 Cowgirl win on Saturday, and an 8-4 Red Raider win on Sunday -- today's contest was a pitcher's duel as Texas Tech's Cara Custer (above, left) bested OSU's Kat Espinosa.

The Raiders scored a run each in the first and second innings, and never really threatened again. As shown below, the Cowgirls threatened in the third inning, but didn't score. OSU got a run in the fifth inning, but that was all the scoring. An article on the game can be found here.
