NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Baylor's Aaron Miller homered twice and the Bears hit three home runs in the final two innings Sunday to cruise to a 7-3 win over Oklahoma.
With the win, the Bears (16-9, 3-6 Big 12) avoided a series sweep against the Sooners (20-8-1, 2-3-1).
Oklahoma took an early 1-0 lead with Jamie Johnson's RBI single in the first inning, but Baylor responded with an RBI single in the third inning by Shaver Hansen. The Bears then took the lead in the fourth when Miller hit his first of two solo home runs.
The Sooners tied the game in the bottom of the fourth with a solo homer by J.T. Wise, but Baylor finished out the game with three home runs in the final two frames, including a two-run shot by Raynor Campbell in the eighth and solo homers by Miller and Landis Ware in the top of the ninth.
OU starter Michael Rocha registered his third straight no decision with two runs allowed on seven hits and a walk through five innings. Reliever Ryan Duke (4-3) took the loss for Oklahoma.
Baylor starter Willie Kempf (4-1) allowed two runs on five hits through seven innings for the win. He struck out three and walked three.
