WACO, TX — STORY LINES
Nicky Dawson [baylorbears.com] had a stellar game in the series finale vs. Texas Tech. Dawson went 3-for-4 at the plate with a triple and a walk. Sunday marked her fourth three-game hit of the season with her last one coming in the series finale at Oklahoma when she went 3-for-3 at the plate.
• Dawson also turned a pair of double plays off nifty line drive catches on Sunday. The first one tipped off Kassidy Krupit's [baylorbears.com] glove, and Dawson tracked it down and dove to reach second base to get the Tech runner out. The second one Dawson leapt in the air for and then immediately threw to McGlaun at first to get the runner.
• Baylor recorded 10 hits in Sunday's contest vs. Texas Tech. It was the first time since March 12 at McNeese State that the Lady Bears put up double digit hits.
• One of those hits came from freshman Casey Shell [baylorbears.com] whose single to left field marked her first career hit at Baylor.
• Krupit hit her ninth home run of the season on Monday. That puts her tied for eighth in the Big 12 and second among the league's freshmen.
