Morning all and welcome to another edition of the Daily Bears Report. Today we have an exciting list of Baylor sports available for your perusal. On the menu today is baseball and, well, that's it. We're a one-trick pony today.
Although the students will be leaving Waco if they have not already, they can rest easy knowing that when they return in the Fall, they will be greeted by a beautiful new completed stadium. Seriously, if you have not driven into Waco from the North on I-35, do it. You can see the McLane Stadium letters before you reach the hill (you know the one), but the best is yet to come. As you near the apex of the hill, you begin to see The Palace on the Brazos (nickname pending) arise like the sun in the opening of "2001: A Space Odyssey". For the full effect, blast Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra (side note: someone please make a video of this). It's magical.
There's no preview up on BaylorBears.com, which makes my job a bit harder, but I'll persevere regardless (Here's the UTSA preview). Baylor Baseball wraps up its regular season at its own stomping grounds with a four-game home stand against the likes of UTSA and TCU. First up is the Roadrunners from down I-35.
Baylor owns a 30-6 all-time record against UTSA, but the teams have split the last six games. The Roadrunners are currently 31-21 on the season to the Bears' 22-27. Baylor is mathematically guaranteed to finish the regular season sub .500, but it would be nice for them to get one last win (I highly doubt the Bears' bats can handle TCU's phenomenal pitching at the weekend, but we shall see). Probable starters are RHP Drew Tolson for the Bears and RHP Boone Mokry.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 at Baylor Ballpark, if the forecast for rain proves false.
What did you expect? This is Texas and we love our football.
3+5 = 8. Mathematics, y'all.
Where's Texas on the list on the left? I thought they were a top-tier program with NFL talent everywhere.

No, seriously. Naturally, SB Nation was there to mock this tomfoolery.
Rougned Odor hit his first career home run last night.
