OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – Baylor Softball fell 14-3 to No. 1 Texas on Friday night in the semifinals of the 2024 Phillips 66 Big 12 Softball Championship at OGE Field in Devon Park.

THE REPORT

The Bears tried to make things happen early in the game Emily Hott drew a leadoff walk and Alijah Binford singled in the top of the first inning, but that would be all if the Longhorns eliminated the threat.

Texas struck first, scoring six runs in the bottom of the first inning on six hits and a walk, proving why this is one of the top offenses in the country.

Ana Watson walked and Abi Flores singled in the top of the second, but that would be it as a lineout in a double play kept the Bears from scoring.

The Longhorns scored six more in the bottom of the second inning to go ahead 12-0.

Prelseigh Pilon singled and advanced on a throwing error in the third before that Ava Knoll was able to retire the Longhorns in order in the bottom half of the inning.

Texas hit two home runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to extend the lead to 14-0 before the Bears could get on the board for the first time.

Down to the last chance, Baylor scored three runs in the top of the fifth on a wild pitch and a two-run shot from Shannon Vivodabut that would be all as the Bears fell 14-3 in five innings.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Bears collected four hits from four different people
  • Shannon Vivoda hit her second home run of the season, a two-run shot
  • Emily Hott drew two walks at the plate
  • Ava Knoll threw 2.1 innings in relief and struck out two
  • BU faced the No. 1 team in the country for the seventh time this season
  • The Bears finished the tournament in a tie for third place

QUOTABLE
Head coach Glenn Moore confronted elite offenses like Texas or Oklahoma…
Yeah, I hope we get some attention from the NCAA committee with the seven games against the number one ranked team in the country. I’m proud of the girls for getting through that, and we’ve been in a few of them. Not good enough to win them all, but we competed.”

NEXT ONE

The Bears will await their fate in the NCAA postseason with the selection show scheduled for Sunday, May 12 at 6:00 PM CT.
