The Bears kept their hot streak alive this season, winning their final regular season series at West Virginia two games to one. The Bears dropped their first game to the Mountaineers in a defensive struggle that ended 2-1.

However, the Bears rebounded on Friday and won their second game against West Virginia 4-1, tying the series. Troy Montemayor also tied the Baylor record for career saves at 37.

Which brings us to today’s game, where the Bears took the series by winning 6-2. This marks the Bears’ 5th straight series win and their 18th win in their last 21 games.

Winning this series, in many pundits’ eyes, locked the Bears up for the post season baseball tournament. That’s really quite the incredible feat considering the Bears were sitting at 16-17 before making this massive run to end the regular season 32-19. Baylor ought to continue to climb the polls and have an exciting postseason. Next up is the Big 12 tournament in Oklahoma City. Sic ‘em!
