Baylor baseball’s relief slinging stifles SHSU, 9-5

By Michael Haag | Sports Writer

Baylor baseball got the better of Sam Houston State University 9-5 Tuesday evening at Baylor Ballpark in what was a punch-counterpunch contest that saw 27 hits in total from both sides. The two teams have split their matchups this season, dating to March 15 when SHSU walked off with an 11-10 win.

The Bears (20-17, 4-8 Big 12) overcame a fourth inning three-run deficit to the Bearkats (19-17, 10-5 WAC) and neutralized explosive hitting through some key relief pitching.

“I’ll tell you what, Sam Houston might be one of the best-hitting teams in the country,” head coach Steve Rodriguez said.
