ARLINGTON — The Baylor Bears were gracious in handing the UT Arlington baseball team 14 free passes on the basepaths. Unfortunately, the Mavericks couldn’t make them pay in a 6-4 loss to Baylor on Tuesday at Clay Gould Ballpark.UT Arlington left 14 runners on base and squandered key run-scoring opportunities, including striking out with the bases loaded and also with the winning run on first.The loss drops UTA to 24-21. “We can’t dwell on it,” coach Darin Thomas said. “We don’t have quite enough to compete on the midweek schedule. We did last year, but the important thing this year is we’re tied for first in conference.”The Mavericks just couldn’t capitalize on the multiple opportunities Baylor laid out for them. The Bears let the Mavs get runners into scoring position in seven different innings, but held them to just two hits with runners in scoring position.“It’s frustrating because we had plenty of chances to score but we just couldn’t get it done,” Thomas said. “It’s a game of momentum. We had it early and gave it back and went into a little lull.”The Mavericks capitalized on the first opportunity they got. Ryan Walker led the game off with a walk and came around to score on Matt Shortall’s fifth homer of the year. Shortall drove a 2-1 fastball over the right field fence to spot Beck a couple of runs.But Baylor came right back. UTA starter John Beck allowed a pair of runs to score in the third inning on two singles, a sacrifice fly and a liner down the third base line that slipped past the outstretched glove of Travis Sibley. In five innings of work, he gave up three runs and five hits while striking out one hitter. In the bottom of the ninth, the Mavs got a single to bring the game to 6-4 with the bases loaded for J.M. Twichell.On a full count, Baylor closer Crayton Bare struck out Twichell to end the game.
