WACO, Texas (KWTX) Baylor softball won in dramatic fashion on a day that featured eight home events across Baylor Athletics. After a walk-off hit in the bottom of the seventh vs. Texas State, senior Kyla Walker beat out the throw at home in the bottom of the eighth to give the Lady Bears a victory over No. 17 Minnesota.
That marked BU’s second win over a ranked opponent this season after Baylor opened the year with an 8-0 run-rule victory in five innings over then-ranked No. 23 Auburn in Clearwater, Fla.
Walker was responsible for three of the four runs scored by the Lady Bears on the day as she went 3-for-7 at the plate. In the circle, Baylor received back-to-back complete-game efforts in the circle by Aliyah Pritchett and Gia Rodoni as the two combined to give up two runs off 11 hits with 12 strikeouts.
