Cathedral City, Calif. -
The Baylor Lady Bears (9-3 overall) used a two RBI single from KJ Freeland to come back and defeat
"I am happy to come out of here with the win," head coach Glenn Moore said. "I thought this was a very productive tournament for our ballclub and we are going to continue to get better from here."
Baylor answered back in the bottom half of the inning with a three spot that came off three Aztec errors. With the bases loaded, Tiffany Wesley walked to bring in Danielle Honnette and Brette Reagan followed with a two RBI single to make the score 3-2.
Baylor would not be denied its ninth win, however, as the Lady Bears continued to put the pressure on the Aztecs. With two runners on, Freeland singled past the shortstop and advanced to third on the play, scoring Meagan Weldon and Tiffany Wesley. Freeland then scored on a wild pitch to give the Lady Bears a 7-5 advantage.
Jenny Isham, who cam in relief of Brittany Turner, picked up her team-leading fifth win of the year after throwing 1.2 and giving up two runs. Turner got the no decision after pitching 5.1 innings and giving up four hits, two earned runs and striking out four.
Baylor will be back in action on Saturday to face Louisiana-Monroe in a doubleheader beginning at 2 p.m. The two teams will finish the three-game series on Sunday at 1 p.m.
