2012 Big 12 Conference Baseball Tournament: Kansas Eliminates Texas A&M, 5-3

No. 7 seeded Kansas was able to stay alive after upsetting No. 2 seeded Texas A&M by winning 5-3. Kansas was able to get revenge against Texas A&M after falling in the opening game 10-4.

This time around Kansas was able to hold off the Texas A&M bats as starting pitcher Thomas Taylor who earned the win for the Jayhawks by pitching a complete game, while striking out a season-high nine batters.

Kansas responded to Texas A&M's two runs they scored in the first inning by scoring two runs in the bottom of the second, and then taking the lead for good by putting up another two runs in the bottom of the fourth.

Texas A&M had a chance to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth when they had men on first and second base with no outs, but Taylor was able to get out of the inning by forcing a fly out and then with two men on and one out Texas A&M hit into a double to end the game.
