Oklahoma tied the game up 1-1 in the third before Davion Downey hit a massive two run homer over the deep and tall right field wall:
Oklahoma then tied the game back up at 3-3 in the bottom of the fourth. Baylor then had a huge two out rally in the 6th, getting a run off a bases loaded walk and 2 more after that off of a 2 out single to make the game 6-3:
Baylor pitcher Alex Phillips kept the Sooners in check, not allowing them to score while the Bears kept the scoring up. Baylor added two runs off a 2 out single by Nick Loftin in the 8th to make it 8-3:
In the 9th, the Bears added another two runs thanks to an RBI single by Shea Langeliers and a sacrifice fly from Josh Bissonnette to make the game 10-3:
Baylor held off Oklahoma in the bottom of the 9th inning to finish the game with a 10-3 victory.
The Bears will face off against either TCU or West Virginia for the championship tomorrow at 1:00 PM CT (West Virginia has to win two straight games to advance, so in all likelihood it will be Baylor vs. TCU in the championship). Sic ‘em Baylor Baseball!
