ROUND ROCK, Texas - Five Baylor pitchers combined to hold Texas State to four hits, and the Bears broke the game open with a four-run fifth inning on their way to a 5-1 win on Wednesday night at The Dell Diamond.

Baylor (5-0) held its fifth consecutive opponent to two runs or less, and the Bears have allowed only nine hits over the last three games. The Baylor pitching staff has surrendered five total earned runs through the first five games, and the 5-0 start is Baylor's best since starting 7-0 in 2008.

"From a pitching standpoint, they're getting after it, they're aggressive and they're throwing a lot of strikes," head coach Steve Smith said. "They're pitching with a lot of confidence - I see a confidence on the mound. It's one thing to be aggressive, it's one thing to try to throw first-pitch strikes, but it's another thing to do it with some purpose and with some confidence, and I've seen that."

Tyler Bremer (1-0) earned the win in a pre-determined short start. He allowed three hits and one walk with three strikeouts in 4.0 innings, while the Bears' bullpen combined on 5.0 innings of one-hit relief.

Trae Davis worked a scoreless fifth inning in his season debut, and Miles Landry pitched a career-long 2.0 shutout innings. Texas State (2-2) didn't get on the board until a Casey Kalenkosky two-out RBI double in the eighth, but the Bears had already built a 5-0 lead, and Dillon Newman struck out the next four Bobcat batters to close out the win.

Baylor got on the board quickly as Nathan Orf was hit by a pitch leading off the game and came around to score on a Josh Ludy RBI double. Ludy later added a sacrifice fly and a single, giving him four multi-hit games and four multi-RBI games this season.

The Bears used some aggressive base running to push across four runs in the fifth. Lawton Langford led off with a single and scored on an Adam Toth RBI double. Nathan Orf followed with a single and took second base when the throw in from right field missed the cutoff man. Cal Towey followed with a sacrifice fly, Max Muncy knocked a RBI triple and Ludy delivered the second sacrifice fly of the inning to put the Bears in front 5-0.

Texas State starter Mitchell Pitts (0-1) took the loss after allowing five runs on six hits in 4.2 innings. The Bobcat bullpen combined on 4.1 innings of one-hit relief.

Baylor puts its perfect record on the line when it travels to No. 22 UCLA for a three-game series this weekend. First pitch in Friday's series opener is scheduled for 8 p.m. CT. The Bears are expected to start junior left-handed pitcher Josh Turley on the mound.
