Behind a record performance from their top pitcher, Taylor Jungmann, the Longhorns limited the Baylor baserunners and will live to see another day in Oklahoma City. Jungmann (13-0) threw a one-hit complete-game shutout, allowing one run and striking out seven. The performance ties a Big 12 Championship record, last completed by Nebraska's Chad Wiles on May 19, 1999 against Oklahoma State. Jungmann retired 15 consecutive batters starting with the last out of the second inning and ending with a walk allowed in the bottom of the eighth. The one-hit complete-game shutout was the second of the season for the Temple, Texas-native (April 21 vs. Kansas).
Offensively for Texas, junior Brandon Loy led the way with a 3-for-5 effort including a double, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base. Sophomore Cohl Walla also drove in two runs, while collecting two hits and scoring a run.
Texas (41-14) improves to 27-20 at the Big 12 event and will face the loser of the Oklahoma State-Missouri game Friday at 3:15 p.m. Baylor (29-26) falls to 26-24 overall at the Championship and is eliminated from the Championship.
