TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tres Barrera hit a bases-loaded single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, sending Texas to a 4-3 victory over Baylor on Thursday in the winners' bracket of the Big 12 Tournament.

Fourth-seeded Texas (28-25) entered the ninth leading 3-0 before Mitch Price tied it for Baylor (22-31) with a three-run homer on an 0-2 pitch from Texas starter Ty Culbreth (4-4).

Texas' Bret Boswell hit a one-out single in the bottom of the ninth off Bears starter Drew Tolson (3-8). An intentional walk and another walk issued by Tolson, sandwiched around a flyout, set the stage for Barrera's winning hit.

Zane Gurvitz had three of Texas' 11 hits, while Kameron Esthay reached base four times for Baylor.

Baylor (22-31), seeded eighth, will face Texas Tech (31-23) in an elimination game Friday. Texas will play the winner of that game Saturday.
