DALLAS- Patience played a large role as Baylor scored five runs in the last two innings for a 9-5 win against Dallas Baptist on Tuesday night at Patriot Field. The win marked the Bears' (21-20) sixth in a row over the Patriots (21-20).

Facing a 5-4 deficit entering the eighth inning, Baylor drew four two-out walks to tie the game. Down to his last strike, West Tunnell battled back from a 0-2 count to reach first. Lawton Langford, Nathan Orf and Cal Towey then followed suit to force in the run.

In the ninth, Jake Miller led off with a single and stole second to get the Bears started. Adam Toth moved him closer on an infield single before Nate Goodwin drove in his second run of the game on a grounder that bounced off the third baseman's chest. Moments later, Langford and Orf broke open the game with a two-run double and RBI single, respectively.

"It wasn't an easy night to play and both sides put some guys on," said BU Head Coach Steve Smith of brisk conditions during the game and 16 walks from both sides. "We got some timely hits there down the stretch. Offensively, we were good from the get-go. We got good at-bats throughout the order. Cal is seeing the ball really well right now. It was good to see Nate [Goodwin] come up with a big double.

"It was a much different game than the score would indicate. We were a strike away from being out of an inning and four walks tied it up."

Making his first appearance since April 3, Sterling Wynn started the game and was solid after giving up two runs in the first. The rookie tied a career high with five strikeouts in three innings in a no-decision.

"I thought Sterling threw a good three innings," Smith said. "He's been working on his breaking ball and he threw some quality breaking balls. He missed on a breaking ball over the middle to Boomer Collins to lead off the game and left a fastball up for the two-run double. But after that he was really good, had good life on his ball."

Crayton Bare picked up the win in yet another solid relief performance. Improving to 5-1 on the season, the senior tossed two hitless, scoreless innings and fanned two.

The loss was given to Michael Smith (5-4) after allowing four runs (one earned) on three hits in his lone inning of work.

The Baylor offense was led by Orf, Towey and Wendel as each had two hits and an RBI. Miller also had two hits and scored a pair of runs.

Baylor returns home this weekend for a three-game set against Texas. Games are scheduled for Friday at 6:30 p.m. CT, Saturday at 8:05 p.m. and Sunday at 2:05 p.m.
