Baylor 7, Texas 1
Why Texas (25-25, 10-13) lost: It couldn’t drive in runners, stranding 13 altogether. The lone run came in the third inning on C.J Hinojosa’s third home run of the series and sixth of the season.
Why Baylor (21-29, 9-14) won: The Bears struck for three runs in the fourth after LHP Josh Sawyer walked Duncan Wendel to start the inning. After Kameron Esthay singled, Texas centerfielder Collin Shaw took a false step in and couldn’t catch up to Mitch Price’s two-run double. Shaw, normally the right fielder, started in place of Zane Gurwitz, who was benched in Saturday’s game for poor effort. The third run of the inning came on Matt Menard’s single to center.
Key stat: Texas batters walked eight times, but none of them came around to score.
On deck: at Baylor, 5 p.m. Sunday, 1300, Fox Sports Southwest.
