No. 17 Baylor win series against Kansas as Jordan Strickland drives in three

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Jordan Strickland drove in three runs and Kendall Potts won her first Big 12 start in the circle for No. 17 Baylor in a 6-1 win against Kansas at Arrocha Ballpark. Baylor (36-13, 10-4) took the Big 12 series with Kansas (35-12, 5-9).

Strickland hit a two-out, two-run double in the top of the first inning and later drove in a run with a single to help lead the Baylor offense. She tied a season-high with three RBI and finished 2-for-3 with a double. It was her eighth multi-hit game and fifth game to have multiple RBI this season.

Potts improved to 7-3 on the season inducing 10 groundouts in 4.2 innings of work to pick up the win in the circle for the Bears.

Lindsey Cargill had three hits for the second day in a row and drove in a run for Baylor. Her 3-for-4 day gave her a team-leading 17 games with multiple hits.

The Bears scored two runs apiece in the first, second and fourth innings and combined for 10 hits. Kansas' only run came when the Jayhawks strung together three consecutive singles off Potts with Jessie Roane driving in the home team's lone run.
