SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) - Texas State coach Ty Harrington earned his 500th Division I victory with the Bobcats’ 2-0 win over Baylor on Wednesday night.

Harrington, in his 15th season with Texas State, is the winningest coach in school history. He was previously the head coach at Northeast Texas Community College from 1995-98 and Blinn Junior College in 1999.

The milestone victory came with Chad Young, Andrew Boes, Cory Geisler and Hunter Lemke combining on a five-hit shutout. Lemke got the final three outs for his ninth save, tying the single-season school record.

Cameron Friess had a pinch-hit RBI single in the eighth to make it 1-0, and Tyler Pearson added a run-scoring single one out later for Texas State (23-18).

Geisler (3-0) got the win, while reliever Nick Lewis (1-1) took the loss for Baylor (19-22).
