Matt Sodolak got the scoring started for Baylor with a two-run single in the first. The Bears got two more runs in the second on Booker's RBI double and Beamer Weems' sacrifice fly. The two-run first and two-run second produced the offensive banister Baylor's pitching staff needed on the night.
Booker pushed the Bears' lead to 6-0 in the fourth with a two-run homer down the left-field line; it was Booker's first round-tripper of the season.
UTA got a run in the bottom of the fourth thanks to Collin Garner's bases-loaded walk. An extended fourth innings forced Baylor starter Wade Mackey out of the game. Mackey, who did not factor in the decision, allowed one run on three hits and four walks with three strikeouts over 4.0 innings.
William Draper, the first of four Baylor relievers earned the victory, the first of his career. Draper (1-0) walked two and struck out two in 2.0 scoreless innings. Aaron Williams, Willie Kempf and Cliff Springston each logged an inning of work to close out the game for the Bears. Williams surrendered a run, while Kempf and Springston struck out two and three, respectively.
Shaver Hansen finished 2-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored for Baylor. Miles and Sodolak had two RBI each.
UTA starter Kendal Carrillo (0-2) took the loss, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks in 1.0 inning of work.
