2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament, Baylor Vs. UT-Arlington Final Score: Bears Win 11-6 To Avoid Being Eliminated

Baylor was able to avoid being sent home from the NCAA Tournament as they defeated University of Texas-Arlington 11-6. Catcher Josh Ludy got Baylor on the board first by hitting a two-run home run in the first inning. Baylor added another run in the top of the first and another in the second to go up 4-1.

UT-Arlington's Preston Beck hit a solo home run in the third inning to make it a 4-2 game, but then in the fourth inning UT-Arlington tied the game on back-to-back RBI singles off of Baylor starting pitcher Trent Blank.

The Baylor offense kicked it up a gear by scoring seven runs over the final four innings. The damage came against UT-Arlington's relief pitchers Adam Boydston and Colin Reynolds who each allowed three runs and put Baylor back in the lead at 10-5. Each team scored a run in the ninth inning but Baylor reliever Crayton Bare came in and relieved Max Garner to finish the ninth inning and struck out a pair of UT-Arlington players to end the game.

Ludy led the way for Baylor at the plate by going 4-for-4 which included a home run, three runs, two RBI and a walk.
