A one-out RBI single by Luken Baker in the top of the 11th inning plated Cam Warner to break a 0-0 tie and open the door for a 5-0 TCU win over Kansas State Friday night in Manhattan, Kan.
The third-ranked Frogs (20-5, 6-1 Big 12) would score four more times in the inning with the big blow being a three-run double by Elliott Barzilli.
Sean Wymer (2-1) picked up the win by facing only six hitters over two innings in relief of Jared Janczak. Janczak went the first nine innings, giving up only 2 Kansas State (15-11, 0-4) hits while striking out seven and allowing one walk.
Jordan Floyd (1-3) took the loss for KSU.
