STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State scored eight unanswered runs to beat Baylor 15-5 Sunday afternoon.

Paul Powell's three-run homer gave Oklahoma State a 3-0 lead in the first inning. Nebasett Brown hit a two-run double in the second inning to raise the score to 5-0.

Solo home runs by Chris Durbin and Ron Zboril in the fourth inning cut the Cowboys' lead to 5-2.

Oklahoma State got two more runs in the bottom of the fourth on Jimbo McAuliff's RBI-single and an RBI-groundout by Brown.

The Bears (33-17, 16-8 Big 12) got three runs on a pair of hits to make the score 7-5, but freshman pitcher Joe Weaver (6-0) held Baylor in check over the final three innings.

The grand slam rounded out scoring.

Weaver (6-0) allowed only one hit and no runs for Oklahoma State.

Kyle Edens (2-1) allowed three hits and five runs in two innings in taking the loss for Baylor.
