TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Zane Gurvitz drove in a run and scored the winner on a throwing error in the seventh inning in Texas’ 2-1 victory over Texas Tech on Wednesday in the Big 12 Conference tournament.

Parker French (4-3) limited Texas Tech to eight hits and struck out six in a complete game for the fifth-seeded Longhorns (27-25).

Fourth-seeded Texas Tech (30-23) scored after three consecutive singles and a passed ball in the seventh inning. But with runners on first and second, French got a fly out and a strikeout to end the inning.

Red Raiders starter Cameron Smith (6-5) allowed five hits and one earned run in 6 1-3 innings and struck out a career-high eight. Texas Tech stranded seven base runners, including two in the ninth inning.

Texas advanced to play Baylor on Thursday. Texas Tech will face TCU in an elimination game.
