  • No. 13/17 Baylor softball (40-10, 12-4 Big 12) opened its final regular season Big 12 series in dramatic fashion, winning 2-1 over the Texas Longhorns (29-21, 6-9 Big 12) on Friday evening at Getterman Stadium. From Baylor Bears dot com.

Kelsee Selman (20-7) went the distance for the Lady Bears, spinning 7.0 innings in the circle and allowing just four hits and one run, striking out three.

“We were up 2-1 and the tying run is on second, and you don't want her to score. So you've got to give her the best throw you've got and throw her out at home. It's huge. It's our last home game, and we want to go out with a bang. We did, and now we just have to keep it going into this weekend when we head to Texas.” – Baylor centerfielder Jessie Scroggins.

“It was really big, knowing that this was our last Big 12 game at home. This is a big series to start off with the win. It's just what we needed. Just having games like that where they're close - where the last inning gets close - is the stuff we need for going further into Regionals and Super Regionals. I think it's really important to have games like that to help us out in the long run.” – Baylor pitcher Kelsee Selman.

“That was a great way to end our home season. I would have liked it to be a little greater difference in the score. They made a good decision. I would have sent the runner, too. She had to make a perfect throw and she did. That was a tough play for the catcher to make. I think we just saw the Texas team that hadn’t been there all year. They’re very capable and we knew that. Who would have thought we’d beat Texas on the long ball. The short game we’ve had really wasn’t a factor tonight. It was a different game for us to play. We won the game a different way and that was big.” – Baylor head coach Glenn Moore.

Baylor will close out the remaining two games of the Texas series in Austin, facing the Longhorns in 1 p.m. games on Saturday, May 6, and Sunday, May 7.
