LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Gabe Holt went 3 for 5 and drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning to help Texas Tech beat Duke 6-4 on Saturday in Game 1 of the best-of-three Lubbock NCAA super regional.

Holt’s single to right field scored Cody Farhat and, four pitches later, Brian Klein’s RBI double gave Texas Tech (43-17) a 6-4 lead going into the ninth.

Duke (44-17) took a 3-0 lead when Zack Kone hit a two-RBI double in the top of the fifth. Holt singled and Klein walked before Grant Little hit a two-out, two-RBI double in the bottom of the inning and Holt’s bases-loaded fielder’s choice scored Cameron Warren to make it 3-all in the sixth.

Kone hit a two-out RBI single to make it 4-3 in the top of the seventh, but Rheams tied with a solo homer in the bottom half.

Kone finished 3 for 4 with two doubles and three RBIs for Duke.

Game 2 is set for Sunday.
