It was a terrible weekend for the Horned Frogs, but they still sit atop the Big 12 standings.
The No. 6 Red Raiders (36-12, 11-7 Big 12) moved to within one game of the conference-leading Frogs (31-11, 12-6). Each team has six Big 12 regular-season games remaining, with TCU hosting Texas and playing at Oklahoma.
The first game Sunday was the resumption of Game 2 that was suspended by rain Saturday with TCU leading 2-1 in the bottom of the third. TCU held a 4-2 lead, but John McMillon’s solo home run in the fifth and Brian Klein’s homer in a three-run sixth put Tech ahead to stay.
The Red Raiders were smoking hot at the plate, while TCU’s pitching and hitting really let them down.
After only scoring two runs against TCU across the first 12 innings of the series, the Red Raiders put up 26 over the next 11 innings, including scoring five runs in the third inning of Game 3. Tech’s five-run third was the 28th time this season the Red Raiders have scored four or more runs in an inning.
The DT would be a huge get for TCU, who continue to try and build up the trenches.
Dallas (Texas) Bishop Dunne high school defensive tackle Calvin Avery has 20+ offers, but TCU was one of the first schools to jump into the mix.

Avery visited TCU in January for the Frogs' junior day.
Congrats to Josh, who has a shot to play a significant role in Tennessee.
Carraway was a first-team All-Big 12 and Academic All-Big 12 player his senior season in Fort Worth, leading the team with eight sacks, which made him the first player to lead TCU in sacks in consecutive seasons since Jerry Hughes in 2008 and 2009. Carraway’s 19 career sacks rank seventh in TCU history. He tied for the TCU lead with 11 tackles for loss as a senior. He totaled 49 stops.
