The weekend is here, which means Baylor sports returneth. The theme of the weekend is Oklahoma; the Tennis teams and Softball are all facing Oklahoma and/or Oklahoma State. That state to the north won round one. It's revenge time.
In Season: Baseball and Softball
Baseball Drops Split Series Opener at Dallas Baptist - BaylorBears.com
Baylor finally found their offense yesterday, scoring eight runs. Unfortunately, despite starting arguably our best pitcher, Kuntz, Baylor forgot to bring their defense to Dallas, as they allowed a whopping twelve runs.
The Bears scored two in the first off of a Grayson Porter homer to take the lead...that wouldn't last the inning. By the sixth inning, Dallas Baptist had brought twelve runners across the dirt-covered pentagon. Baylor would mount a rally, but could only muster six more runs.
I just witnessed Baylor turn a triple play. So. Awesome. #SicEm @BaylorBaseball— Josie Drago (@msjosiedrago) April 12, 2014
A triple play is pretty sweet though.
Baylor and DBU play a double header on the banks of the Brazos. Remember, it's community tailgate day, so there's lots of free stuff!

No. 13 Oklahoma Edges No. 12 SB, 3-2 in Big 12 Series Opener - BaylorBears.com
It had to happen eventually. Whitney Canion gave up a run. A two-run homer by Oklahoma's Leslie Miller ended a 21.1 inning streak of scoreless softball under Canion. Three runs in the fifth inning put the Sooners out in front, where they would remain.
The Lady Bears actually loaded the bases twice, but were only able to bring in one run from these situations. They left a total of seven runners on base.
Hopefully Baylor can tie up the series today at 4:00 in Waco. The game will also be nationally broadcast on ESPN. Coach Scott Drew will be throwing out the first pitch and Ian McCaw will be present Whitney Canion with her 100th career win ball.
Off Season: Football and MBB

Rangers - Astros
Thoughts on a very annoying, vexing, yet ultimately triumphant 1-0 Rangers win http://t.co/NHkLXhVh5P— Adam J. Morris (@lonestarball) April 12, 2014
It lasted 12 innings and it was ugly. That's basically all you need to know.
Jimmy Walker remains at two-under after shooting par Friday. He is in a tie for seventh at the moment. Leader Bubba Watson is at seven-under.

Since I forgot yesterday, y'all get TWO bears today!
