Baylor Baseball got right back on track after finals break, taking down UT Arlington 12-2 in a run-rule victory. This was Baylor’s last regular season home game (the chance to host a regional is still a possibility). The Bears now sit with an overall record of 33-13.
Shea Langeliers played a key role in the victory, picking up 4 RBIs off of 3 hits. Nick Loftin also had a strong batting performance, going 3 of 4 with 3 RBIs. The Bears achieved the 10 run-rule in only 6.5 innings, ensuring they will be fresh for their upcoming series at Oklahoma State.
The series against the Cowboys starts this Thursday and will be critical in deciding the Big 12 regular season champion. Baylor is first in the Big 12, but sits only a half game up on Texas Tech. Texas Tech plays its final conference series against TCU the same days as Baylor’s series. Oklahoma State can’t be taken lightly as they are sitting at third in the conference and could also end up winning the regular season title depending on the outcome of this weekend. This will be a critical weekend for the Bears.
Sic ‘em Baylor Baseball!
