    The No. 11 Horned Frog baseball team will host the No. 14 Baylor University Bears Wednesday in an attempt to extend their winning streak to seven after beating the University of Texas at Arlington 11-3 Tuesday night.

    During this stretch, the Horned Frogs are averaging 9.86 runs per game.

    The Bears enter the game 6-2, coming off an 8-3 loss to the No. 7 Rice Owls, which snapped their five-game win streak.

    The Bears are averaging six runs a game so far this season.

    Last year, the Horned Frogs won both games against Baylor, 3-2 at home and 4-3 in Waco a week later. TCU will be traveling to Waco on March 25 this season for the second game of the home-and-home Series.

    During the two games against Baylor last season, senior outfielder Chris Ellington went a combined 4-9 with one run and three runs batted in.

    Ellington is carrying that success over to this season. He is currently leading the team in average, .452, at bats, 31, hits, 14, and RBIs, nine.

    The schedule for the Horned Frogs doesn’t get much easier after the game against Baylor.

    TCU will host the Wichita State Shockers for a three-game series this weekend. The Shockers are no longer ranked, but they did began the season in the top 25.
