Baylor Baseball Drops 5-3 Decision to UT San Antonio

 Wynn provides second straight solid start

 SAN ANTONIO – Freshman Sterling Wynn continued to show progress on the mound in Baylor's 5-3 loss to UT San Antonio on Tuesday night at Wolff Stadium, home of the San Diego Padres AA team the San Antonio Missions. 

 Wynn experienced a tough first inning as his second pitch was launched over the left field fence by Daniel Rockett.  The lefty then gave up a single and double before allowing two more runs to score on a Tony Ramirez single.  However, it would be the only inning in which the rookie starter struggled.

 After throwing a season-high four innings of one-run ball at Sam Houston State last Wednesday, Wynn threw three straight scoreless innings en route to a 4.2-inning start.  He retired nine straight hitters and struck out four during an impressive run as he posted a season-best five strikeouts while walking just one batter and giving up six hits.

 "He only allowed one walk and had five strikeouts," said BU Head Coach Steve Smith of Wynn.  "It was the best he's been with three pitches.  We saw a good fastball, good breaking ball and good change up.  It was a really good outing for him, a good step in the right direction.  We are really pleased with how he threw the ball."  

 Unfortunately for Wynn, the Baylor (11-14) bats were unable to come through with a clutch hit when needed as 13 runners were left aboard.  The Bears missed out on scoring chances in the second, third, eighth and ninth innings. 

 "We had some chances throughout the game," Smith said.  "It came down to not getting a hit and them getting one.  We worked some walks out of them, got some base hits out of them, but left 13 guys on.  It's a game that keeps the fans involved, keeps them on the edge of their seat and makes every call big.  We get a couple hits in there and everybody would breathe a little better."

 When Baylor did take advantage of scoring chances in the fifth and sixth, it left costly runs on the bases.  In the fifth, a two-out RBI bunt single with the bases loaded by Nathan Orf scored BU's first run, but Cal Towey left three aboard after he struck out swinging.

 In the sixth, Grayson Porter doubled in a run and Brett Doe scored another on a ground out.  However, Logan Brown left the go-ahead run at third with a ground out.

 In the Roadrunners' (15-10) sixth, they loaded the bases with one out against Sean Spicer and cashed in with a Jesse Baker two-run single, which stood as the game-winning hit.

 The Bears loaded the bases in the eighth and ninth against Matt Sims but came up empty again.  Brown struck out swinging to end the eighth.  Then Nate Goodwin went down looking and West Tunnell grounded out to short in the ninth.

 UTSA reliever Jordan Pacheco (6-0) earned the win, throwing one inning and allowing just a walk.  Sims picked up his third save, surrendering three walks and a hit with three strikeouts in 1.1 innings.  Spicer (1-2) took the loss for Baylor after giving up two runs on three hits and two walks in 0.2 innings.

 The Bears open an 11-game home stand this weekend at Baylor Ballpark against Kansas State.  Games are set for 6:35 p.m. CT on Thursday and Friday and 1:05 p.m. on Saturday.
