The ferris wheel is turning and the tent is up in the 1st with 2 errors to start the game.
OU scores 2 unearned runs in the 1st. Bears answer with 4 in the bottom half.
Heading to 2nd, Baylor 4 OU 2.
OU scores 3 in he 3rd.
OU 5 Baylor 4, heading to the the 3rd.
OU leads 6-4 through 3. Orf got thrown out at the plate to end the 3rd. Sloppy game by both teams. Big XII baseball is bad.

10-8 OU in bottom of the 8th but Bears got the leadoff hitter on. No outs
Towey grand slam!
Hell ya, come on bears! Way to go Towey!
Great job by the Bears to win this series.
Down 9-4 and they show a lot of heart to win 12-10.
Huge win for RPI. Huge win for conference standings. Unbelievable.
I wish George's was open on Sundays.
next up TCU in Fort Worth- great pitching but only hitting .238. Hopefully the Bears can take that series.
Wow! Tuned this game out after we went down 9-4.
Bears have good shot at the conference crown.
Just a huge series win. We are at the point where we really need to play about .750 ball to make the post season winning 2 of 3 at home against a higher RPI team is just huge. Nice W.
surely Cal Towey is the Big 12 player of the week. Heck, he may even get some national attention. Hits 2 game winning home runs to beat the #8 team in the nation twice in one weekend.
Serves me right. I was listening to the game online, and gave up after OU went up 9-4, than shut us down the next couple of innings. Never count out a Steve Smith coached team.
This sounds strange to say, but with the new RPI formula, I'm glad we only have 4 home games left. If we go 3-1 in our tensing home games (assuming the loss isn't to UTSA) and go 6-6 or 7-5 in our final 12 home games, we should be in good shape for a regional bid.
...but since we are only a half game out of first, let's just go ahead and win the conference championship. The committee will pretty much ignore our RPI if we win the Big XII.

what a big-time series win, when we really needed it.
us winning this series says two things...
1) we're not quite as bad as a lot of people thought
2) the Big 12 isn't very good this year (OU seems to be a tad overrated)
i still don't believe we're a terribly good team, but we're good enough to make the post season, and give some top teams hell. we've still got a LOT of work to do, to make a regional, but last weekend was a HUGE help.
