Baylor knocks off DBU, wins Waco Regional

June, 4, 2012
WACO, Texas -- Reliever Dillon Newman allowed only an infield hit in five shutout innings and Jake Miller drove in three runs as Baylor beat Dallas Baptist 8-2 Monday to win the Waco Regional and clinch a super regional host spot.

Baylor (48-15) will host Arkansas (42-19), winner of the Houston Regional, beginning later this week at Baylor Ballpark. It marks the Bears' first super regional appearance since 2005, when they beat Clemson in Waco and advanced to the College World Series.

Dallas Baptist ends its season at 41-19.

DBU took a 1-0 lead on Joel Hutter's RBI single after freshman starter Cy Sneed (8-5) retired the Bears 1-2-3 in the first inning -- only the second time in five tournament games Baylor had gone down in order.

But Sneed didn't make it out of the second inning. The Bears used two hits, three walks, a hit batsman and a sacrifice fly to score three runs and take a lead they never gave up.

Baylor starter Josh Turley pitched four innings on two days' rest, allowing two runs, before Newman (4-3) came on in the fifth and shut the Patriots down the rest of the way.
