Baylor will play Lamar in the final nonconference regular season game of the 2017 season, leading into two Big 12 weekend series: Oklahoma State (April 28-30 in Waco) and Texas (May 5 in Waco, May 6-7 in Austin).

The Lady Bears and Lady Cardinals will meet for the second time in 2017, with Baylor taking the previous meeting on Feb. 18 in the Getterman Classic in Waco, 5-3. Baylor jumped out to an early lead, holding off a two-run seventh inning rally to secure the win.

Baylor is 11-0 all-time against Lamar, including 2-0 in games played in Beaumont. The teams have not met on the Lady Cardinals’ home turf since 1983, with Baylor sweeping the doubleheader.

Baylor is fresh off a weekend series at No. 8 Oklahoma, with Baylor taking the middle game of the three-game series. The Lady Bears are third in the Big 12 standings behind a two-way tie for first place between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

Baylor is 8-1 this season in midweek games and 8-7 in true road games.

The Lady Bears have two players qualified as national award finalists: Lindsey Cargill (USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year) and Shelby “Goose” McGlaun (NFCA National Freshman of the Year).
