SAN MARCOS, Texas –Baylor (11-8) held off a Texas State team hoping to rally in the bottom of the seventh inning to clinch a 4-1 victory at Bobcat Softball Stadium on Wednesday.

Baylor got things going offensively in the third quarter as Josie Bower singled up the middle and Nicky Dawson singled to third base to put two runners on with one out. That set things up for Kassidy Krupit who launched her sixth home run of the year over the right field wall to put the Lady Bears up by three runs.

Meanwhile, the Baylor defense continued to put up zeroes. The Lady Bears retired the first 10 batters they saw as starting pitcher Sidney Holman finished with four strikeouts.

Baylor added another run in the top of the sixth inning. Madi O’Neal hit a fly ball to shallow left field that caused some confusion. The error allowed her to reach base safely and Alyssa Avalos to score from third base.

Texas State threatened in the bottom of the seventh with the bases loaded and two outs, but Regan Green came into the circle to get the final out.

HIGHLIGHTS

With runners on first and second and one out in the bottom of the seventh inning, Madi O’Neal made a catch in foul territory at the wall down the third-base line for the second out of the frame.

TOP QUOTE
Glenn Moore on the win…
“I’m pleased with a lot of things that happened tonight.  We took the momentum early and had solid defense.  Sidney Holman was tough. She was on her game with very few mistakes.  I thought our offense put some quality at bats together, scored enough runs and were threatening to do more damage throughout the game.”

WHAT'S NEXT
Baylor makes a road trip to Louisiana to play No. 11 Louisiana on Monday and McNeese State on Tuesday and Wednesday.
