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.

The Frogs stranded runners on second and third in both the first and seventh innings. KSU had a runner as far as third base only once, in the seventh inning, but a ground out ended the threat.

The two teams meet in the middle game of the three-game series at 2:05 p.m. Saturday at Manhattan, Kan.
