Wednesday DBR: The Mystery of Baylor Baseball

New, comments

No one can figure it out.

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.

Women's Tennis vs. Rice Today

No. 7 Baylor will host No. 42 Rice at 5 p.m. in the Hurd Tennis Center. The Owls are on a five-match win streak and are in excellent form coming into Waco. New ITA rankings confirmed Baylor's top ten ranking and listed several players in the top 100 in singles and doubles rankings.

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.

Track Headed to Texas Relays

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.

The Daily Bear

"There's a BearNTex behind me, isn't there?"

"Yep."
