Baylor Wins Series Over Aggies

After dropping the opening game of the series in College Station, the Baylor Bears (19-11, 5-5) stormed back to win the final two games of the weekend over the Texas A&M Aggies (20-10-1, 6-5-1) to take the series.

After dropping a close game to the Aggies in the opening game of the weekend series, the Baylor Bears took two straight against their longtime rivals to win the series.

On Saturday, it was Baylor pitcher Logan Verrett that threw a complete game 4-hit gem in a 13-1 Baylor victory. On Sunday, the Baylor pitchers continued to baffle Aggie hitters giving up only one run on 5 hits. The Bears only gave up two runs in two games to the Aggies after allowing 4 runs in the opening game of the series.

On Sunday, the Bears and Aggies were tied 1-1 headed into the bottom of the 7th inning. With two outs, Baylor freshman outfielder Tyler Collins reached base on a single. Two pitches later, Baylor senior Gregg Glime knocked in the game-winning run on a double to right center putting the Bears up 2-1.

Baylor closer Brooks Pinckard came on in the ninth frame and shutdown the Aggies to record his eighth save of the season.

The Bears next face UT-Arlington on the road on Tuesday before returning home to face the same UT-Arlington team on Wednesday at Baylor Ballpark.
