WACO, Texas (AP) — Junior Logan Vick had four hits and three RBIs to help host Baylor stay alive in the Waco Regional with a 5-2 elimination game win Sunday over Oral Roberts.

The fourth-seeded Bears (46-15) need wins over Dallas Baptist (41-17) on Sunday night and Monday to advance to the NCAA Super Regionals.

Oral Roberts, which sent Baylor into the losers' bracket with a 4-2 win Friday night before an 11-8 loss to Dallas Baptist on Saturday, ends its season at 38-25.

ORU jumped in front on Jose Trevino's RBI single in the first inning, but Baylor answered in the top of the third on Vick's two-run single.

The Bears added a pair of insurance runs in the seventh on Vick's fielder's choice grounder and a looping double down the right-field line by Josh Ludy that got past Logan Domenico as Vick scored from first.
