The pitching dominated this game for both teams through the first six innings, but it was the Baylor offense who broke through first on the scoreboard by piling up the hits which led to three runs in the top of the seventh inning. That was all the offense that Baylor would need as they ultimately would go onto win 4-0.
Trent Blank was the starting pitcher for Baylor and he tossed seven innings, struck out five, allowed one walk and five hits. Crayton Bare came in for Baylor to close out the game and he pitched two scoreless innings to earn the save. Texas brought out Corey Knebel who pitched strong through six innings, but he fell off in the top of the seventh by allowing the three runs and earned the loss.
The two teams face off again on Saturday but the second and third games move from Waco to Austin with the second game starting at 6:30 p.m. CT.
