WACO, Texas – Baylor baseball notched a 17-5 win over Prairie View A&M on Monday night at Baylor Ballpark. The Bears (13-9) used a five-run first and nine-run fourth to take down the Panthers (5-15).

PVAMU opened the game with two runs in the first, but the Bears scored five in the bottom half and took it from there. The five runs came on a hit batter (Richard Cunningham), six walks (RBI walks by Cole Haring, Davion Downey, Josh Bissonette and Tucker Cascadden) and one single (RBI by Nick Loftin).

The Bears added a run on a Haring sacrifice fly in the second and two in the third on a Langeliers double and wild pitch.

After the Panthers got a run back in the fourth, Baylor put the game away in the bottom half with nine runs on eight hits and one walk. Cascadden and Cunningham had RBI doubles to begin the rally, and Langeliers hit a two-run home run. Then with two outs, Downey had a two-run double and Bissonette blasted a three-run homer.
