Keeping the runs flowing in the second, Walker sent a triple tip-toeing the left field line, scoring Scroggins and Taylor Ellis. Walker would score on a Friudenberg RBI single.

Lindsey Cargill drilled a single off the pitcher’s foot into the outfield grass, scoring Friudenberg and pushing the BU lead to 9-0.

After a Tulsa run in the top of the third, Kendall Potts closed out the final 2.0 innings, allowing just one hit and no runs.

Gia Rodoni (2-0) took the start, going 3.0 innings and allowing just one unearned run, while striking out seven, including the first five Tulsa batters.

TOP QUOTE

“Another great day of competition. We had a lot of questions that we had answered today and I thought the score was not indicative of how close that game was. I was extremely pleased with how Kelsee Selman pitched, going up against one of the best lineups in the country, and she held her own.” – Baylor head coach Glenn Moore
