The Baylor Bears baseball team droped to fifth in the Big 12 after losing two of three games to Kansas this past weekend.

The Bears dropped both games of a double header on Saturday. Baylor fell to the Jayhawks 10-9 in the first game and lost 8-7 in the second game.

Baylor came back strong to win the third game on Sunday. Senior pitcher and co-captain Kris Lambert struck out eight in his fourth complete game of the season. Sophomore center fielder Jon Topolski and sophomore right fielder Jeremy Dodson both hit home runs to help the Bears beat the Jayhawks 7-2.

The win put the Bears conference record at 10-8. Baylor is currently tied with Texas A&M for fifth in the conference standings. Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Kansas are ahead of Baylor in the standings. Texas Tech is atop the conference with 12 wins and three losses.

Only the top six teams in the conference are invited to the Big 12 tournament to be held May 15-18 in Oklahoma City at All Sports Stadium.

The Bears will try to improve their overall record as they battle non-conference opponent University of Texas at San Antonio at 6pm today at Ferrell Field.
