Baylor beats Tulsa 2-1

WACO, Texas -- Baylor scored two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, and Whitney Canion pitched another gem as the Lady Bears advanced to championship day with a 2-1 win against Tulsa at Getterman Stadium Saturday.

Baylor will play for the regional championship on Saturday.

Tulsa’s Aimee Creger came into the contest with a  28-1 record and a 1.24 ERA, but the Lady Bears’ two-run, three-hit inning in the bottom of the fourth handed the Golden Hurricane ace just her second loss of the season.

Jordan Strickland drove home the tying run with two outs before the next batter, Liz Paul, singled home Sarah Smith to give Baylor the winning run.

Canion picked up her 28th win of the season, scattered five hits, walked three and struck out five in the win. Tulsa struck first with Julie Kernen singling in the second before Cierra Hughes tripled her home to give the Hurricane an early 1-0 lead.

After Baylor scored two runs, Tulsa made it interesting in the seventh  when Jodi Edmiston doubled to leadoff the inning. Maggie Withee laid down a sacrifice bunt to move Edminston to third with one out. However, Canion induced a lineout from Haley Henshaw and struck out Shelby Blanton after intentionally walking Jill Barrett to end the game.

The victory was the 700th of Glenn Moore’s career with 561 of those victories coming at Baylor.
