Senior Mike Pankratz hasn't done it often, but on Saturday night he came up big for the Baylor Bears. Pankratz hit a 2-run homerun to right-center field giving the Bears a lead they would never surrender. Chase Gerdes added another blast as the Bears took game 2 and assured themselves of a series win against the 5th ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Cory VanAllen, who had trouble with his control early, pitched 7 strong innings giving up only 4 hits and one run. VanAllen pitched his way out of several tough spots, most importantly inducing a 2 out bases loaded flyout in the top of the 7th inning. Tim Matthews came in to finish the game allowing 2 hits in 2 innings and recording 2 strikeouts.
With a first pitch time at 2:00 cst, the Baylor Bears will look to sweep the Huskers on Sunday as they wrap up their final home series at Baylor Ballpark.
