LAWRENCE, Kan. – Baylor softball dropped the series finale Sunday afternoon against Kansas, 3-1, at Arrocha Ballpark.

Baylor fell behind early in the matchup after Kansas took the 3-0 lead after the second inning.

Aliyah Binford successfully struck out three batters in the first, but a solo home run and a single brought three Jayhawks home.

Both teams went three-up, three-down in the third before the Bears plated their first and only run of the game in the top of the fourth. A leadoff double from Ana Watson and a follow-up single from Emily Hott put runners on second and third with nobody out. The Bears grounded into a double play next, but Watson was able to come home from third.

The Jayhawks got a runner on third in the bottom of the fifth, but a pop-up got the Bears out of the situation.

Holding Kansas scoreless the rest of the game, the Bears weren’t able to find the offense to push past the Jayhawks and fell 3-1.

HIGHLIGHTS 

  • Ana Watson recorded a hit, extending her hitting streak to five straight, tying a career-high
  • This was the third-straight game the Bears have been trailing 3-1 after the fourth
  • Aliyah Binford pitched her fourth complete game this season

TOP QUOTES 

Glenn Moore on the game… 

“Kansas was tough today and we dug a hole early once again. We can’t continue to do that and expect to come back. The game will punish you for that approach, it did today.”

UP NEXT

Texas State comes to Waco on Tuesday for a 6:30 PM game before the Bears host Sam Houston for games on Friday (6:30 PM) and Saturday (2:00 PM).
