LUBBOCK, Texas - The New Mexico softball team fell to 3-14 on the year with a 8-0 loss to Texas Tech in the final game of the day at the Mutual of Omaha Lady Raider Classic. The Lobos held with the Raiders in all but two rocky innings which led to eight of Texas Tech's nine hits and all of its eight runs.
Senior Ashley Perkins came in to throw 5.2 innings of relief. Perkins allowed five hits, two earned runs, five walks and struck out six. Texas Tech's Erin Crawford tossed a three-hit complete game with no runs or walks and four strikeouts.
The Lobos' game against Texas A&M Corpus Christi tomorrow has been cancelled due to rain. New Mexico is still scheduled to play Texas Tech at 2 p.m.
