MANHATTAN, Kan. - Josh Turley tossed his second career complete game to lead No. 8 Baylor to a 5-2 win over Kansas State on Friday night at Tointon Stadium, and the Bears extended their winning streak to 17 games.

Turley (5-0) allowed one earned run on six hits with no walks and six strikeouts in 9.0 innings, and Baylor (28-7, 13-0 Big 12) improved to 9-0 in games he's started on the mound this season. Turley threw 81 of his 116 pitches for strikes in the Bears' first complete game of the year.

"He was really, really good. He threw four pitches for strikes and threw a lot of strikes," head coach Steve Smith said of Turley. "They put the ball on the ground, and it's a tough matchup for him, but he did a great job with it and just kept throwing strike after strike."

Max Muncy went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a home run, and Josh Ludy broke a 2-2 tie with a two-run single in the seventh inning. Ludy, Lawton Langford, Cal Towey and Jake Miller each had two hits in the game.

Kansas State (17-16, 3-7 Big 12) starting pitcher Matt Applegate (2-4) took the loss after allowing four runs on 10 hits in 6.1 innings. Baylor's 13 hits in the game equaled its total from the entire 2010 series when the Bears were swept in Manhattan.

The Bears wasted no time taking the lead when Nathan Orf led off the game with a single and scored on Muncy's RBI double that hit the top of the wall in right-center field, but Kansas State tied the game in the second after a two-out single and a wild pitch were followed by a Dan Klein RBI single.

Baylor went back in front in the fourth when Vick led off with a single, moved to third on a Towey double and scored on Miller's sacrifice fly. K-State again answered to tie the game two innings later, as Klein led off the fifth with a bunt single, moved to second on Turley's throwing error, and then scored on Jake Brown's bunt single. That bunt single was the only time Turley allowed a leadoff batter to reach base in the inning.

Baylor loaded the bases with three singles in the sixth, and Applegate escaped that inning when he got Adam Toth to ground out, but the Bears broke through in the seventh. Langford singled with one out, Muncy moved him to third with a double that chased Applegate from the game, and Ludy delivered his game-winning two-run single against reliever Gerardo Esquivel.

Muncy added a solo home run with two outs in the ninth inning to extend the Bears' lead to 5-2, and Turley worked around a one-out hit batter in the bottom half to complete the win. All six hits allowed by Turley were singles, and he held KSU hitless in six of nine innings in the game.

The Bears and Wildcats resume their series at 1 p.m. Saturday in a game that will be televised on Fox Sports Kansas City. Baylor is expected to send Trent Blank to the mound against KSU left-hander Joe Flattery.
