Baylor Baseball missed out on a chance to hoist a Big 12 Regular-Season Trophy after dropping a pair of games in Stillwater over the weekend.
The Bears controlled their own destiny entering the weekend, but after a loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday The Bears had to depend on TCU to knock off Texas Tech, which did not happen.
But the canceled game on Saturday gave Baylor a chance to come home, sleep in their own bed and get one last workout in their own ballpark. The Bears now feel like they have put last weekend behind them and they are looking to defend their crown at the Big 12 Baseball Tournament.
“Yeah 100% you know it was disappointing weekend Oklahoma State, to say the least,” Senior Richard Cunningham said. “We did not perform like we wanted to and you got to tip their hat they played great baseball. But yeah we’re going somewhere that we feel great about and as a team collectively we played maybe our best baseball we played all year from top to bottom. And now that we’re going back there just kind of re energizes the team and gets everyone locked back into go defend the crown.”
Sophomore Nick Loftin said the disappointment of this last weekend is just the latest setback this team looks forward to overcoming.
“I mean Stillwater’s, a bump in the road,” he said. “We’re excited to be back out on the, on the field in Bricktown and we’re excited to finish our championship.”
Baylor opens their Big 12 Tournament on Wednesday against 7th seeded Oklahoma at 4:00pm.
