Thomas Bruce "Spike" Borland (February 14, 1933 – March 2, 2013) was an American relief pitcher in Major League Baseball who played from 1960 through 1961 for the Boston Red Sox. Borland batted and threw left-handed, stood 6 feet 3 inches (1.91 m) tall and weighed 172 pounds (78 kg).

Borland attended Oklahoma A&M, now Oklahoma State University and was named Most Outstanding Player in the College World Series in 1955. In a two-season MLB career, Borland posted a 0–4 record with a 6.75 ERA and three saves in 27 games pitched.

Apart from two trials with the Red Sox, Borland spent his professional career in minor league baseball, compiling a 48–39 record and a 3.42 ERA between 1955 and 1963 with two years missed due to military service. He was traded to the expansion Houston Colt .45s in March 1962 in exchange for Dave Philley, but never appeared in a Major League game for them.
