WACO, Texas - Baylor avenged an earlier loss at UTSA emphatically, defeating the Roadrunners 14-3 on Tuesday night for their 40th win of the season. The Bears pounded out 15 hits and tied a Baylor Ballpark record with eight stolen bases.

"We're just trying to continue to evolve as a team and do what we can do, what the game presents," head coach Steve Smith said. "It was clear that they were having some trouble stopping us, so that's what we did."

UTSA ended Baylor's school and Big 12-record winning streak at 24 games with a 4-1 win in San Antonio on April 24, but the Bears got revenge with their school-record 21st consecutive home win.

Baylor (40-11) got 5.0 innings of shutout relief from a trio of relievers, including Kolt Browder (1-1), who picked up his first win of the season with 3.0 innings and three strikeouts. Baylor pitchers combined for 11 strikeouts and only one walk, while the Bears' starting nine drew 12 walks and didn't strike out against UTSA (21-30).

Logan Vick went 3-for-4, drove in two runs, stole three bases and hit his Big 12-leading 21st double of the year. Vick also drew his 122nd career walk, moving him into a tie for 10th on the Big 12 Conference's all-time list. Cal Towey reached in all five plate appearances, going 2-for-2 with a double, a home run, three RBI, three walks and three runs scored.

Baylor starter Brad Kuntz did not factor in the decision after allowing two earned runs in 4.0 innings, but he turned the ball over to Browder with the Bears in front 4-3 at the start of the fifth inning.

UTSA starter Logan Onda (0-4) took the loss after allowing four runs on six hits with three walks in 3.0 innings. Five Roadrunner relievers combined to walk nine and allowed 10 runs on nine hits in 5.0 innings.

Baylor fell behind 1-0 in the third when an error leading off the inning led to an unearned run, but the Bears quickly answered with four runs in the bottom half and kept the lead the rest of the way. Max Muncy delivered a two-out RBI single, and two batters later Towey knocked a three-run homer over the right field wall.

UTSA cut the deficit to one with a pair of runs in the top of the fourth, but the Bears didn't allow another run the rest of the way. Trae Davis and Joe Kirkland closed out the game by each working a scoreless inning of relief.

The Bears scored three more runs in the seventh on a Jake Miller sacrifice fly and a two-run single from Adam Toth, and they added two in the seventh on Vick's two-run double. Even with five pinch hitters coming to the plate in the eighth, the Bears plated five runs. Steve DalPorto knocked a two-run single and Grayson Porter had a two-run double for his first career hit.

"It's good to be able to give them action and get them out there, because we need to continue to get some of these guys in games," Smith said. "To see Porter get up there and square the ball up like he did was really good, and it was really good to see DalPorto do what he did. There were also some everyday guys that hadn't been doing it for about 10 games and finally got something going tonight, and that was the best part."

Baylor plays its final regular-season home game when it hosts the first game of a three-game split series against Texas at 6:35 p.m. Thursday. The first 4,000 fans at Thursday's game will receive Big 12 Champions t-shirts, and the first 500 fans will receive Baylor trading cards. Baylor will be presented the Big 12 Championship trophy following the game.

Thursday's game will also be televised in Waco on MYTX. The series shifts to Austin for a 6:30 p.m. game on Friday and a 2 p.m. game on Saturday, with both games televised on the Longhorn Network. Following the Texas series, Baylor heads to Oklahoma City for the Big 12 Championship, which begins Wednesday, May 22. Game times will be announced Sunday.
