Baseball Defeats UT Arlington
Baylor Baseball is on something resembling a winning streak that none of us anticipated after the great slump post-Cal Poly. Theron Kay pitched an excellent game against the Mavericks to seal the 6-2 win for Baylor in Arlington. Couple that with a series win against West Virginia and the Bears have had quite a week. The recent wins have come despite injury troubles and a lack of depth in the bullpen.

Softball at UNT Today
Baylor Softball's most inexplicable loss of the season thus far came at home to North Texas, in which Baylor recorded seven hits but no runs. Glenn Moore hopes that loss will be rectified today at UNT's Lovelace Stadium. If you're in Denton and want to watch some excellent softball, head on out at 6 p.m.

Also worth noting is that Whitney Canion's number will be retired this Saturday. For those of you with incredibly short memories, Canion is the all-time Baylor great whose lengthy career came to a close last year in the Women's College World Series.

After being ranked to begin the outdoor season, Baylor is headed to the Texas Relays in Austin, where 39 competitors will test themselves against the best competition in the state. Trayvon Bromell and Felix Obi will both kick off their outdoor seasons here, and Baylor's multiple winners from last weekend's TCU Invitational will look to build upon their successes.
Longhorn Network will provide extensive coverage of the four days of events, some of which will be on a tape delay.
Men's Tennis Ranked No. 2 Nationally
The Baylor men have been unable to usurp Oklahoma at the top of the national rankings after dropping two matches to the Sooners, but the Bears seem to be a consensus No. 2 pick even after those losses. Illinois, who also narrowly beat Baylor at home back in February, is at No. 3.
