Sunday DBR: Win Or Go Home

New, 1 comment

When you play in the playoffs, you win or you go home.

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Good morning all and welcome to another edition of the Daily Bears Report. In today's report, we're discussing bats sports, men's tennis, and track and field. Unlike a certain show, I do not have an extremely long intro with cool graphics and great music to pass the time, so we're jumping right into the news.

Softball Out-duel Tulsa; Advance to Play...Tulsa

Moore's 700th Win Puts SB in Driver's Seat; Bears Beat Tulsa, 2-1 - BaylorBears.com

Coach Glenn Moore earned his 700th win (561 with the Lady Bears) as Baylor rode Whitney Canion's outstanding pitching to beat Tulsa, 2-1. Tulsa's pitching star, Aimee Creger (28-1, 1.24 ERA), was handed her second loss of the year by virtue of a two-run fourth inning from the Lady Bears.

Tulsa beat Houston in the other game yesterday, meaning Baylor and Tulsa will face off once again today. Baylor would have to be beaten twice in order to not advance. The first game is at 1:00 at Getterman. If necessary, the second game will begin immediately following.

Track and Field

The list of runners who qualified is too long to list, so check out the link if you're interested. The usual characters appear in the finals: Trayvon Bromell (100-,200-m), Everett Walker (100-,200-m), Blake Heriot (200-,400-m), Ashley Fields (100-,200-m), and Tiffani McReynolds (100-,100-m hurdles all highlight the list by qualifying for two finals apiece.

Today I learned  to bring an extra baseball to Rangers games - just in case.

He's a Sounder, but that's still an outstanding goal.
