SPORTS-UT LONGHORNS SPORTS-UT LONGHORNS

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Freshman Connor Mayes pitched a two-hit shutout and Tres Barrera and Brooks Marlow each drove in two runs to lead Texas to a 4-0 victory Saturday against Baylor and reach the Big 12 Tournament title game.

Fifth-seeded Texas (29-25) will play Oklahoma State in the title game on Sunday.

Mayes (2-4) had 10 strikeouts and needed 127 pitches for the third straight complete game for a Longhorn hurler in the tournament. He allowed a leadoff single to Adam Toth in the fourth inning and a single to Kameron Esthay in the sixth.

Esthay's hit came in the only inning Baylor threatened to score. The Bears (23-32) loaded the bases with two out on Esthay's single and a pair of walks. But Mayes got designated hitter Aaron Dodson to foul out to end the inning.

Barrera hit his ninth homer of the season, a two-run shot in the first off Baylor starter Theron Kay (3-4). Marlow added a two-run, bases-loaded single with two out in the eighth.
