MANHATTAN, Kan. - Baylor's Saturday baseball game at Kansas State has been suspended due to inclement weather. The teams will resume the game at noon Sunday and play game three of the series 30 minutes after the conclusion of the suspended game.
The game will resume with Josh Ludy at the plate in the top of the sixth inning with runners on the corners, one out and Kansas State holding a 10-8 lead.
Saturday's game was tied at 4-4 after four innings, but Kansas State took advantage of an error to score six runs - three of which were earned - in the bottom of the fifth. Baylor got back in the game with four runs in the top half of the sixth before lightning was detected in the area. Jake Miller drilled a three-run homer, Lawton Langford hit a RBI double and Max Muncy had just delivered a single to put runners on the corners when the game was stopped.
Baylor entered Saturday's game riding a 17-game winning streak, including 13 straight wins to open Big 12 play. The Bears' 13-game Big 12 winning streak is the fourth-longest in conference history, and the 17-game overall winning streak is the second-longest in program history and three shy of the 20-game winning streak of 1985.
