Baylor's baseball team took the field for the 4th time this season, and for the 4th time they finished the game with the victory. Tonight was a sign for Bear fans that maybe this team has some power hitting after all.
While getting off to a slow start giving up 3 runs in the top of the 1st and an additional run to trail 4-0 going into the fifth inning, it seemed like a loss might be in the works for the Bears. Then with 2 men aboard, true freshman Beamer Weems belted a 3-run homer, his first of his Baylor career, to pull the Bears within one. A few innings later, Zach Dillon matched his teammate with a 3-run homer of his own.
Randall Linebaugh made his first career start for Baylor.
Bears win 17-4. Bears move to 4-0 on the season.
Baylor's men's basketball team suffered it's second straight blowout loss against a ranked opponent on the road, this time to the University of Texas. Besides an early Aaron Bruce 3-pointer, the Bears didn't score for the first several minutes. Before they knew it, the Bears were down 18-3 and were virtually out of the game. The Longhorns continued to pound on Baylor the rest of the night, ultimately winning 90-63.
Baylor finished the night with 3 players in double figures as Bruce tallied 15 points on 4 for 8 from the 3 point line, Curtis Jerrells had 13 points on 2 for 4 from the 3 point line, and Tommy Swanson tallied 11 points. Bruce added 4 boards and 4 assists while Jerrells had 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals.
Ugly is a little harsh – these are just some stats that were not what any fan wants to see. Mamadou Diene, Baylor's starting true freshmen center, fouled out in just 10 minutes of play. He finished with 2 points, 1 rebound, 1 block to go along with his 5 fouls and 2 turnovers. Henry Dugat, who only a few weeks ago seemed destined for freshmen greatness, finished with only 3 points on a late 3 pointer in 19 minutes of play. Tim Bush, a junior who starts at forward, finished with 0 points in 16 minutes of play
