After Josh Turley came within five outs of no-hitting New Mexico State Friday night, the Baylor pitching wasn't quite so stellar on Saturday afternoon in Waco. When the offense scores 15 runs, though, it doesn't usually matter how good your pitching is that particular day.
The Bears' bats pounded out 14 hits and took seven walks en route to the 15-5 win. Freshman Adam Toth brought some havoc to the basepaths: after hitting his first career homer in the second to cut the NMSU lead down to one, he reached on a fielder's choice in the fourth, then stole second, third and home. His thefts capped a five-run frame that put the Bears up four; in the fifth Baylor scored another seven runs to make the game a laugher.
Ryan Smith pitched 3.2 scoreless innings in relief to earn the win, in the last game Baylor will play for ten days. The Bears break for finals before visiting Texas State on May 9th.
