Second Big 12 team to CWS: Texas Tech joins Texas, TCU still has shot

Dylan Dusek turned in his fourth consecutive scoreless start and Texas Tech advanced to the College World Series for the first time with a 1-0 victory over the College of Charleston on Sunday in Lubbock, Texas.

The Red Raiders (45-22) join Texas in punching tickets to Omaha and the College World Series later this week. Texas finished a sweep of Houston on Saturday.

Dusek (8-0) worked five-plus innings, gave up three hits and walked one as Texas Tech (45-20) swept the best-of-three series with back-to-back 1-0 triumphs over the Cougars. Cameron Smith, Dominic Moreno and Jonny Drozd combined to work the final four innings for the Red Raiders.

TCU was denied a chance to join Tech and Texas, at least for a day. Aaron Brown pitched seven scoreless innings and made a game-saving throw from center field as Pepperdine beat the Frogs 3-2 on Sunday night, forcing a deciding third game Monday.
