Cal Towey drove in three runs with two hits Friday night, leading Baylor past Oklahoma 8-3 in the Big 12 baseball tournament at AT&T Bricktown Ballpark.

The win put sixth-seeded Baylor into Sunday's tournament championship game against fourth-seeded Texas A&M.

Clutch hitting was the difference Friday. While Baylor left only three runners on base, Oklahoma stranded nine, including seven in scoring position.

The Sooners' Max White had three hits and Danny Black tied a tournament record with two triples. Garrett Buechele had two hits for OU, and Tyler Ogle slugged a two-run home run.

The Bears' Raynor Campbell was 2-for-3 with two RBIs, and Max Muncy also drove in two runs.

Oklahoma scored first, in the third inning. Buechele singled, was doubled to third by Cameron Seitzer and came home on a wild pitch. Baylor answered with five runs on four hits, a walk and a hit batter in the bottom of the third.

The Sooners cut Baylor's lead to 5-3 in the fifth, when White singled and scored on a two-out, two-run home run by Ogle.

Baylor went ahead 6-3 on pinch hitter Josh Ludy's two-out double in the sixth, scoring Joey Hainsfurther, who had singled.
