LUBBOCK, Texas – The No. 9 Texas Tech baseball team fell in game two of the NCAA Lubbock Super Regional to Duke, 11-2, on Sunday night at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.
 
The Red Raiders (43-18) and Blue Devils (45-17) will play in game three of the series on Monday, June 11, at 3 p.m., with the winner advancing to the College World Series in Omaha. Tech won the first game of the series, 6-4, on Saturday afternoon.
 
Tech finished the night with nine hits highlighted by two-hit performances courtesy of freshman Gabe Holt, sophomore Josh Jung and sophomore Grant Little. Sunday's contest was delayed an hour and 12 minutes at the start due to lightning and rain rolling through the Lubbock area.
 
Sophomore right-handed pitcher Caleb Kilian got the start for the Red Raiders in game two of the Super Regional, going 4.0 innings against the Blue Devils. He allowed six runs on eight hits, walking one and striking out two to drop to 9-2 this season.
 
Duke struck first in the fourth inning as three-straight hits brought in two runs for the Blue Devils. Back-to-back singles from Kone & Conine put runners on the corners, then a triple to left-center field from Loperfido push both home for a 2-0 lead. After a groundout, consecutive doubles from Miller and Crabtree added two more to make it 4-0.
 
In the fifth inning, Duke added six more to push the advantage to 10. Proctor led off with a double, then a single from Kone scored him for the first run of the inning. With the bases loaded, an RBI single from Taylor to right field plated the sixth tally of the night for Duke, then a triple down the first base line from Miller cleared the bases for a 9-0 lead. After the second pitching change of the inning, a sacrifice fly from Herron brought in another run to make it 10-0.
 
Junior outfielder Cody Farhat brought home the first run of the night for the Red Raiders in the seventh inning, sending an RBI double down the third base line with two away to score senior infielder Michael Davis, who tripled before him. In the eighth, Little brought in another run on a single to left field with runners on the corners.
 
In the bottom of the eighth, Duke scored on a single to center field from Loperfido to bring the score to its final at 11-2.
 
The Red Raiders and Blue Devils return to action on Monday at 3 p.m. at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park at ESPN2.
