Big XII Baseball Update (4-3-12)

via cdn2.sbnation.com

Baylor's winning streak is now up to 11 games, including 9 in conference, as the Bears continue to put a stranglehold on the rest of the conference. They'll travel to Columbia this weekend where the Tigers are hoping to put an end to the streak. That series will begin on Thursday, as will Texas at Texas Tech and Oklahoma at Texas A&M, so that they can be off on Sunday for Easter.

On the other side of Baylor is Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are streaking in the wrong direction with five consecutive Big XII losses. Here's this week's Big XII rundown.

Team Overall Record What Happened Last Week
Baylor 22-7 The Bears pounded Houston 14-5 last Tuesday night and then swept the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Waco over the weekend. The OSU series included a marathon game on Sunday in which they won 5-4 in 13 innings.
Kansas 12-15 After losing to Missouri State (9-8) last Tuesday the Jayhawks bounced back to take two of three games from Texas Tech (L3-1, W5-2, W9-3) in Lawrence. It was their first series win in conference.
Kansas State 14-13 The Wildcats had a tough week last week after losing to Nebraska (6-3) on Tuesday and then dropping two of three games at Oklahoma (L5-1, W8-7, L4-3) over the weekend.
Missouri 16-11 The Tigers split with Central Arkansas (W12-7, L8-2) in a mid-week series and then lost two of three to Texas A&M (L8-6, W4-3, L7-6) over the weekend in College Station.
Oklahoma 18-11 The Sooners knocked off in-state rival Oral Roberts (5-2) in their mid-week game before taking the series against Kansas State over the weekend. They won Sunday's rubber-match with a walk-off single by Evan Mistich. Freshman Hunter Lockwood was named both the Big XII Player of the Week this week and the Newcomer of the Week.
Oklahoma State 14-14 The Cowboys may be running out of time to make a move in conference play. The beat Arkansas-Little Rock in their mid-week series last week and then were swept by Baylor over the weekend. Their series against Kansas this weekend is huge!
Texas 15-11 It never fails! I reach out of my comfort zone to brag on the Longhorns last week and they tank it in by going 1-2 over the weekend. After beating UT-Pan American 9-5 in a mid-week game Texas then lost two of three (W13-3, L12-2, L6-5) to Cal over the weekend.
Texas A&M 22-6 The Aggies took down Houston Baptist 7-2 in their mid-week game and then took two of three games from Missouri (W8-6, L3-4, W7-6) in College Station over the weekend.
Texas Tech 16-13 Duke von Schamann was named the Big XII's pitcher of the week for his performance in the opening game of the Kansas series but that's about all that went right for the Red Raiders this week. They started out with a 7-6 win over New Mexico State on Tuesday and then dropped the final two games of their series against the Jayhawks (W3-1, L5-2, L9-3).
