WACO, Texas  Baylor baseball dropped a 3-1 decision to Oklahoma State on Saturday evening in the second game of a doubleheader at Baylor Ballpark.  The Bears (17-19, 4-8) were unable to figure out the Cowboys’ (22-13, 7-5) pitching staff as OSU completed the series sweep.

OSU took command of the game early with a pair of second-inning runs on three walks and a two-run single by J.R. Davis.

BU countered with a run in the third, but it was the last run the Bears were able to grab.  Richard Cunningham led off with an HBP, moved to second on an out and third on a wild pitch, then scored on an infield single by Kameron Esthay.

The Cowboys added an insurance run in the fifth as Donnie Walton single home a leadoff double for a 3-1 edge.  The Bears had chances late in the game but were unable to get the clutch hit.

OSU starter Jensen Elliott (4-2) earned the win, allowing one run on two hits and one walk with one strikeout in seven innings.  Tyler Buffett picked up the save, giving up just a hit in 1.1 innings with one strikeout.  BU starter Kyle Hill (1-2) took the loss, surrendering three runs on five hits and four walks with two strikeouts in four innings.
