3B Shaver Hansen extended his hitting streak to seven games with an eighth-inning double, Baylor's lone extra-base hit game.
May 4, 2008
Russell Moldenhauer walked to open the second and reached second when Baylor starter Craig Fritsch mishandled a bunt. Brandon Belt followed with an RBI single through the right side. Travis Tucker was hit by a pitch to lead off the third, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on Moldenhauer's two-out double past a diving Ben Booker down the left-field line.
That was all the offense on the day as both pitching staffs kept the bats at bay the rest of the way.
Fritsch (3-3) took the loss, allowing two runs, one earned, on three hits, two walks and a hit batsman with four strikeouts over 5.0 innings. Mace Thurman and Willie Kempf closed out the game, each allowing one hit with three strikeouts and two strikeouts, respectively.
Baylor managed only six base runners on the game, all reaching with at least one out. Raynor Campbell and Booker had back-to-back two-out singles in the second, but Jordan Danks raced down Gregg Glime's Texas Leaguer in right-center to end the inning. The Bears did not get another hit until Shaver Hansen's two-out double in the eighth.
Baylor now takes an eight-day respite for spring semester final exams. The Bears return to the field Tuesday, May 13, hosting
