No. 13 Baylor Softball Falls in 10 Innings at No. 8 Oklahoma

No. 13/15 Baylor softball (35-8, 8-2 Big 12) dropped a 3-2 decision in the bottom of the 10th inning to No. 8/8 Oklahoma Sooners (40-7, 10-0 Big 12) on Saturday afternoon at OU Softball Complex.

Kelsee Selman (18-5) went the full distance for the Lady Bears, going 9.2 innings and allowing just seven hits and three runs, while striking out nine.

Selman took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, and kept the shutout alive through the first eight.

The Baylor bats were the first to crack through, with Kyla Walker reaching safely on an infield error by the Sooners in the top of the ninth.

After Walker stole second, a two-out single by Shelby Friudenberg gave BU the 1-0 lead heading into the bottom of the ninth. The Sooners were able to plate one on an RBI double, forcing the game into 10 innings.

In the top of the 10th, Lindsey Cargill led off with a single, moving into scoring position on a two-out stolen base.

Maddison Kettler came through for the Lady Bears, bouncing a ball into center field that allowed Cargill to score from second, give BU the 2-1 lead going into the home half of the 10th.

With two outs and runners on first and second, a double hooking into the corner in left field scored two to hand OU the walk-off win to open the series.

HIGHLIGHTS

Lindsey Cargill, the team and Big 12’s leading hitter, extended her hitting streak to 21, a career high and the team’s season high streak.

Cargill’s 21-game streak extends her Baylor program record.

The 10 inning game was the longest Big 12 game for Baylor since BU took a 10 inning, 4-3 win over Iowa State on March 30, 2013.

TOP QUOTE

“I’m coaching a group of warriors. We got no breaks in that game, but kept fighting. I knew Kelsee would give us a chance to win and she shut the defending national champs down for eight complete innings. It will be a huge test to respond tomorrow after getting punched in the gut, but you can expect that from us.” – Baylor head coach Glenn Moore

STAT OF THE GAME

.500 – the combined batting average for Shelby Friudenberg and Maddison Kettler, with the duo combining to go 4-for-8 and drive in Baylor’s two RBI.

WHAT’S NEXT

Baylor closes out the weekend series against the Sooners with a Sunday afternoon doubleheader. Game one starts at 12 p.m., with game two starting approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.
