WACO, Texas - Baylor broke a school record by recording its 21st straight win with an 11-1 run-rule victory over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Wednesday afternoon at Baylor Ballpark. The Bears' 21-game winning streak also tied the longest by a Big 12 team since the conference began play in 1997.

Baylor (32-7) pounded out 10 hits on its way to its fourth consecutive game with double-digit runs scored, and Brad Kuntz allowed only one hit in 5.0 innings on the mound to lead the Bears past the Islanders (15-22).

"Our guys came ready, we competed and we had great crowds out here," head coach Steve Smith said. "The last two days have been really special and it doesn't go unnoticed. I know the guys appreciate that, and I think the guys showed that by how they played."

Kuntz (4-2) picked up the win by allowing one run on one hit in a career-long-tying 5.0 innings of work. He allowed a single leading off the game, then held the Islanders' next 18 batters hitless before turning the ball over to the bullpen to start the sixth inning.

Josh Michalec and Doug Ashby each worked a scoreless inning of relief to close out the win. The game ended by run rule when Nate Goodwin scored on Joey Hainsfurther's sacrifice fly that put the Bears in front by 10 runs in the bottom of the seventh.

Goodwin went 2-for-3 with two runs, one walk and one RBI in his second career start behind the plate. Steve DalPorto and Logan Vick each went 2-for-3 with two RBI and one run scored, and Cal Towey drew three walks and collected two RBI.

Eric Weiss led off the game with a single up the middle and moved to second when Drew Vest walked. A double steal gave TAMU-CC two runners in scoring position with no outs, but Kuntz got a strikeout and a popout to move nearly escape the jam before a wild pitch allowed Weiss to score the Islanders' only run of the day.

Baylor's first four batters all reached base without putting the ball in play against Islanders' starter Jacob Dorris. Nathan Orf and Lawton Langford were hit by pitches, Max Muncy walked and Towey drew a bases-loaded walk to tie the game. A wild pitch broke the tie, Dan Evatt hit a sacrifice fly, Vick had a RBI double and DalPorto added a two-out RBI single to give Baylor a 5-1 lead.

Dorris (0-2) took the loss after allowing five runs on one hit in 0.1 inning. He was the first of eight pitchers used by the Islanders, five of which pitched 1.0 inning or less.

The Bears added four more runs on four hits in the fourth to extend their lead to 9-1. Goodwin's RBI single in the seventh moved the Bears within a run of ending the game, and four batters later Hainsfurther delivered the walk-off sacrifice fly.

Baylor returns to action Friday when it takes on Texas A&M in the final Big 12 edition of the Battle of the Brazos. Friday's game is in College Station at 6:35 p.m., and then the series shifts to Baylor Ballpark for the final two games. Saturday's game in Waco is at 6:35 p.m. and Sunday's series finale is slated for 2:05 p.m.
