#6 Baylor thumps Islanders for second straight day

Posted: Updated:

WACO (Islanders Sports Information) - The Texas A&M – Corpus Christi baseball team fell victim to another strong performance by the Baylor Bears on Wednesday afternoon, suffering an 11-1 defeat as Baylor won their 21st-straight game.

The Islanders are now 15-22 on the season, while Baylor improved to 32-7 overall. The win set a new school record for consecutive wins for the Bears, who have the longest win streak in the nation this season.

In the first inning, Eric Weiss led off with a single, and moved to second base on a walk to Drew Vest. After a double steal moved both into scoring position, two straight outs were recorded, but Weiss was able to come home on a wild pitch to score the first run of the game and give the Islanders their only lead of the two-game series.

It was short-lived however, as Baylor's first two batters in the first were hit by a pitch, and the next two walked to tie the score at 1-1. The Bears would add four more runs in the inning on just two hits as they gained a 5-1 advantage.

Baylor added four more runs, two of them unearned, in the fourth inning to extend the lead to 9-1.

The final two runs of the game came in the bottom of the seventh, with the Bears scoring the final run on a sacrifice fly to right field in foul territory to bring home the 11th run and make it an 11-1 game.

The Islanders will now travel back to Corpus Christi to host Stephen F. Austin in a three-game Southland Conference series at Chapman Field. Texas A&M – Corpus Christi will host the Lumberjacks, with both teams fighting to stay in the top eight of the Southland Conference standings.

    A game-winning home run Sunday at Whataburger Field would have kept the night's theme intact. Instead, it was the longest possible single by designated hitter Telvin Nash that made the difference in Corpus Christi's 5-4 triumph in over Arkansas in 10 innings. Nash took a 3-1 Jairo Diaz pitch deep to right-center field off the wall's yellow line, scoring Tony Kemp from third and giving the Hooks their fifth straight victory.
