Baylor Baseball lost to Kansas State last night, dropping their Big 12 home opener 3-2. Baylor continues to suffer from a lack of situational hitting, as a chance to break a 2-2 tie in the sixth went unanswered. Dillon Newman took an undeserved loss from this game, after pitching around a 2-run inning to only allow one more in the 7th inning. Crayton Bare pitched three innings in relief, though the Bears couldn't capitalize on their chances to earn him or Newman the win. Baylor plays the second game of the series this evening at 6:35 PM, with the Bears looking to pull back a chance to win the series.
