MANHATTAN, Kan. - Three Kansas State pitchers combined to hold Baylor to four hits for the second consecutive game, and the Wildcats clinched the series with 5-2 win Saturday afternoon at Tointon Stadium.

With the win, Kansas State (25-8, 8-3 Big 12) clinched the series, as it won Friday's opener by the same score. KSU starting pitcher Kyle Hunter didn't allow a Baylor (21-13, 5-7 Big 12) hit until Brooks Pinckard doubled leading off the seventh inning.

Baylor starter Logan Verrett (4-3) took a tough loss after holding the Wildcats to just one earned run in 7.0 innings. He allowed six hits while walking just two and posting eight strikeouts, but a pair of unearned runs led to the losing decision.

"It was really good to see Logan Verrett follow up what he did last weekend, and he was very effective, very sharp" head coach Steve Smith said. "He certainly pitched well enough to win."

The Wildcats took an early lead when Carter Jurica blooped a one-out triple down the right-field line in the first and came home to score on Nick Martini's groundout.

Verrett bounced back and struck out the next four batters, but Chris Slater's two-out walk in the second was the only Baylor offense through the first five frames.

Gregg Glime drew a leadoff walk in the sixth, and he moved into scoring position as the potential tying run on Landis Ware's sacrifice bunt.

Hunter caught a break to keep his no-hit bid alive, as Logan Vick scorched a liner up the middle that bounced off the pitcher and into the glove of Jurica at shortstop. Jurica then stepped on second base for an inning-ending double play.

Kansas State took advantage of an error to get two runs in the sixth, but a pair of baserunning errors kept the Wildcats from breaking the game open. Jurica was picked off of first base after a leadoff single, and then Martini walked and Daniel Dellasega singled.

Kent Urban followed with a grounder to first, and Max Muncy's throw to second base hit Dellasega in the back and went into left field, giving KSU a 2-0 lead.

The Wildcats then attempted a squeeze play, but Blair DeBord missed on the bunt and Glime tagged Martini at the plate. It was the second time in the game that KSU had a runner caught stealing at the plate - Jake Brown was caught on a straight steal attempt in the third.

After missing on the bunt, DeBord delivered a RBI single to put Kansas State on top 3-0.

Pinckard ended Hunter's no-hit bid and his outing when he led off the seventh with a double. Evan Marshall came on in relief and allowed a RBI double to Joey Hainsfurther, cutting the deficit to 3-1, but the Bears were held in check until there were two outs in the ninth, and KSU added two runs in the eighth against reliever Tom Filip.

Raynor Campbell singled and Muncy drove him in with a double to the gap in right-center, but Tyler Collins was called out on strikes to end the game.

James Allen worked the final 2.0 innings to notch his fifth save. Hunter improved to 7-0 on the season after allowing one run on one hit in 6.0 innings of work.

The Bears will attempt to salvage a game in the series when the teams meet for the series finale at 1 p.m. Sunday. Senior Willie Kempf (4-1, 4.33 ERA) is expected to start on the mound for the Bears against right-hander Justin Lindsey (2-2, 4.52) for Kansas State.
