Walk Off Home Run Helps Texas Eliminate Baylor

Less than 24 hours after Baylor battled back from a seven run deficit to beat Tulane, they had an even bigger game against Texas. The Longhorns had yet to lose this College World Series and have looked awful strong. They jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on an RBI single from Nick Peoples in the first. Baylor would tie it up in the fourth on a solo home run by Josh Ford. Taylor Teagarden continued is hot streak by belting his seventh home run of the College World Series in the bottom of the fifth to give the Longhorns the lead 2-1. That lead lasted until the seventh, when a throwing error allowed the Bears to tie it up. Kevin Sevigny would hit a pinch hit RBI single in the same inning for the Bears first lead of the game. That lead last until the bottom of the eighth, when Drew Stubbs scored Peoples on a sacrifice fly to tie it. So this one would come down to the bottom of the ninth. Chance Wheeless cracked a walk-off home run to lift Texas to the 4-3 win. That eliminates Baylor and moves the Longhorns on to the championship series.
