Baseball Falls to Texas Tech, 6-2; Season Over

After a valiant effort at the Super Regional against a formidable opponent in the nine seed Texas Tech, Duke’s season ended after losing to the Red Raiders in the 3rd game of three-game series. It was a historical season for the Blue Devils, making their first 40-win season in program history, winning their first tournament game since the early ’60s and making it to the super regionals. Leading Juniors Griffin Conine (2nd Round to the Blue Jays) and Jimmy Herron (3rd Round to the Cubs) will likely go pro and forgo their senior year, alongside the other drafted Blue Devils in Chris Proctor, Zach Kone, Ethan DeCaster, Mitch Stallings, and Jack Labosky. In all, seven likely departures will be missed but Coach Chris Pollard is sure to reload and fire in the ACC next year.
