LOS ANGELES — In the program's third straight Saturday elimination game, Baylor found itself in the record books.
No. 2-seed Baylor beat No. 4-seed Nebraska-Omaha 24-6 in Saturday's elimination game at the NCAA Baseball Tournament Los Angeles Regional.
Things got started in a hurry, for Baylor, when catcher Shea Langeliers scored Richie Chunningham on a two-run home run in the top of the first inning.
Langeliers then hit another home run during his next plate appearance, in the third inning. He also hit an RBI single in the fourth.
All-in-all, Langeliers hit three home runs, having added one in the seventh, on 5-for-6 for 11 RBI's. His RBI total is an NCAA Tournament single-game record.
Not to be out-done, Andy Thomas and Josh Bisonette also hit home runs Saturday, as Baylor scored in eight of nine innings.
The Bears return to action at 2 p.m. Sunday against the loser of Saturday night's game between No. 1-seed UCLA and No. 3-seed Loyola-Marymount. Because the NCAA Tournament is double-elimination, the winner of Sunday afternoon's game will play Saturday night's winner in the first game of the LA Regional Final.
