’Dogs hit powerball
This one is purely on a local level, but it’s created excitement among followers of the Bulldogs’ program.
Going into Thursday’s opening game of a Western Athletic Conference home series against New Mexico State, Tech has slammed 82 home runs.
That’s the second highest total for a season in the Bulldogs’ record book, trailing only the 102 recorded in 1988.
With four games set against the Aggies at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park this week, and then the upcoming WAC postseason tournament, there’s a good chance the old record might tumble.
