No. 21 Baylor Softball Faces Kansas in Final Regular Season Home

WACO, Texas - No. 21 Baylor softball (36-12, 7-4 Big 12) closes its 2016 regular season home schedule, hosting Kansas (27-13, 4-2 Big 12) in a three-game weekend series, starting Friday night at 6:30 p.m. at Getterman Stadium.

Friday’s contest will be the 54th between the clubs, with Baylor carrying a narrow 28-25 overall advantage and 14-11 in Waco.

In 2015, the Lady Bears swept the Jayhawks, with Heather Stearns and Kendall Potts teaming up to carry the workload.

Stearns pitched the first and third games of the three-game set, getting complete-game victories in both contests.

Potts handled the middle game, allowing just one run in 4.2 frames, setting up Sarah Beth Toben to close out the series-clinching win.

For Kansas, a tightly contested series with Oklahoma opened KU’s Big 12 season and saw the Jayhawks take the middle game, narrowly missing on a series win after falling on a walk-off grand slam to open the series.

KU has rattled off seven-straight wins since then, including sweeps of North Texas, Georgia Tech, and Texas Tech, outscoring its opponents 60-6 over that stretch.

For Baylor, after taking a series win over Oklahoma State in Stillwater, the Lady Bears picked up a midweek shutout of Texas State, with Heather Stearns, Gia Rodoni, and Kendall Potts combining for a two-hit shutout, with a season-high 13 strikeouts.

All three games will televised, with Friday’s game on FOX College Sports Atlantic, Saturday’s on FOX Sports Southwest, and Sunday’s game on FOX Sports Southwest Plus. John Morris and Kaitlyn Thumann will cover the game as the on-air talent.

The weekend series will also be broadcast live with audio and video on BaylorBears.com/allaccess. Dan Ingham, Jordan Strickland, and Holly Holl will provide commentary.
