Baylor Baseball Drops Game One of DH vs. KSU

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor baseball dropped a 10-8 game to Kansas State in the first game of a doubleheader on Friday afternoon at Baylor Ballpark. The Bears (34-18, 12-11) were unable to hang onto a 7-4 lead through six innings as the Wildcats (28-26, 7-16) rallied.

KSU took a 2-0 lead in the third inning and made it 3-0 with a run in the fourth. However, the Bears battled back with a five-run fourth. Shea Langeliers hit a leadoff home run, Aaron Dodson had a sacrifice fly, Davis Wendzel hit an RBI single and T.J. Raguse roped a two-run single for a 5-3 lead.

Langeliers led off the fifth inning with another homer, but Kansas State answered with a solo shot of its own in the sixth. In the bottom of the sixth, Raguse got the run back with an RBI single.

However, the Wildcats scored three in the seventh, one in the eighth and two in the ninth to comeback, despite Josh Bissonette’s RBI double in the seventh.

KSU reliever Jordan Floyd (2-3) earned the win in relief, giving up a run on three hits and one walk with two strikeouts in three innings. BU reliever Drew Robertson (2-1) took the loss, allowing two runs on a hit and walk in 0.2 innings.
