The Bears batted around in the first inning, collecting five hits in the frame. Raynor Campbell singled to leadoff the game and then scored on Beamer Weems' triple to left-center. Two batters later, Aaron Miller plated Weems with an RBI double. Matt Sodolak's single to right pushed Miller to third, and Chase Gerdes scored both runners with a triple down the right-field line. Gerdes later scored on a wild pitch.
However, Baylor's lead was short-lived. Ty Wright led off the second with a double, and Rebel Ridling followed with an infield single. Dylan Brown's RBI single up the middle got the Cowboys on the board. Keanon Simon followed a three-run homer to right.
That forced Baylor starter Kendal Volz out of the game. He allowed four runs on five hits over 1.2 innings but did not factor in the decision. Cliff Springston (1-3) took the loss after recording the third out in the second inning and then surrendering all six runs in the third.
Tyler Mach doubled to leadoff the third and scored on Matt Mangini's game-tying single up the middle. After a Wright single, Ridling gave the Cowboys' their first lead of the game with an RBI single through the right side. Steve Ptak's two-run single and Corey Simon's two-run double capped the inning and pushed OSU's lead to 10-5.
