WACO, Texas – Baylor baseball swept the series with a 5-1 win over George Washington on Sunday afternoon at Baylor Ballpark. The Bears (8-5) used a four-run eighth inning to defeat the Colonials (7-9).

BU broke a scoreless tie in the fourth inning. Davion Downey singled and an error set up an RBI single by Andy Thomas. However, a Baylor error set up a run for George Washington in the sixth to tie the game.

The Bears broke the game open in the eighth, though. Shea Langeliers reached on a one-out error, Davis Wendzel was intentionally walked after a wild pitch moved Langeliers to second, and Thomas walked to load the bases. Nick Loftin then came through with a big two-run single. Richard Cunningham followed with a single and Josh Bissonette hit into a fielder’s choice throwing error that scored two runs.

BU reliever Ryan Leckich (2-0) earned the win, giving up a hit in three scoreless innings. George Washington reliever Pat Knight (1-2) took the loss, allowing three runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks with one strikeout in 2.2 innings.
