Baylor baseball registers 22 hits in win over Cal Poly Sunday
Andy Thomas registered a hit in all five of his at-bats, Davis Wendzel had three hits and four RBIs, and the Baylor Bears defeated the Cal Poly Mustangs 14-3 Sunday to win the weekend series.
Cal Poly (7-11) opened the scoring in the top of the second with an RBI single from Myles Emmerson off Baylor starting pitcher Tyler Thomas.
Mustangs starter Darren Nelson allowed baserunners in the first two innings but was able to escape without allowing a run until the Bears tacked on five runs in the third.
After Wendzel tied the game with an RBI single, he advanced to third on one of Andy Thomas' four doubles. Two batters later, Davion Downey's two-run single gave Baylor a 3-1 lead.
Moments after that, Cole Haring hit a frozen rope that cleared the left-field wall. His third home run of the season was his only hit in four at-bats.
Baylor (13-5) added three more runs in the fourth inning on Wendzel's third homer of the season. After taking the first pitch for a ball, the Bears' third baseman crushed what appeared to be a home run over the left-field foul pole, but umpires ruled it foul, and the call stood after review.
After another crowd-awakening screamer went foul to move the count to 1-2, Wendzel crushed the fourth pitch of the at-bat over the left-field wall to also bring home Nick Loftin and Richard Cunningham.
The Bears added six more runs in the sixth inning, highlighted by Loftin's third home run of the season.
Baylor will visit Sam Houston State Tuesday.
