It only took the Longhorns seven innings to send the Baylor Bears packing from Oklahoma City. Texas blistered Baylor's pitching staff to the tune of 15 runs off 15 hits and the Bears had no answer offensively. Baylor starting pitcher Drew Tolson only lasted 2.1 innings and had his record drop to 6-4 on the season. Tolson was responsible for the Longhorns first seven runs and then, beginning in the third, four other pitchers would come out of the bullpen, the last three of which surrendered a combined eight runs.
Meanwhile, Texas starter Morgan Cooper went the full seven innings. He picked up just his third win of the season but more importantly he allowed the Longhorns to save their arms to attempt to make a run at reaching Sunday's championship.
Cooper was supported by Tres Barrera and Patrick Mathis, both of which knocked in four RBI each. All nine batters in the the Texas lineup recorded at least one hit, eight of them scored at least one run, and four of them recorded multiple RBI.
Texas will face the loser of Oklahoma State and TCU in Friday's elimination game.
