WACO, Texas -- Josh Ludy went 4-for-4 with a two-run homer and closer Max Garner bailed out Baylor's bullpen with three shutout innings as the Bears rallied for an 11-6 win over UT-Arlington on Saturday to avoid elimination in the Waco Regional.

The Bears (45-15), who had their nation-leading 22-game home winning streak snapped Friday night in a 4-2 loss to Oral Roberts, broke a 5-5 tie with two runs in the seventh against reliever Adam Boydston (2-4).

Cal Towey drew a bases-loaded walk and Jake Miller hit an RBI single off third baseman Travis Sibley's glove. The Bears added three in the eighth on Max Muncy's RBI double and a two-run single by Dan Evatt.

Garner (3-2) came on in the sixth and pitched three hitless innings before tiring in the ninth.

UTA (36-25) was making its first NCAA tournament appearance since 2006.
