The No. 15 Baylor softball team (21-7, 0-1) surrendered two runs in the top of the seventh, falling to No. 7 Oklahoma (25-3, 1-0) 2-0 on Friday afternoon at Getterman Stadium.

“Courtney Repka pitched a masterful ballgame,” head coach Glenn Moore. “We didn’t capitalize on our chances and they did, and that was the difference.”

Scoreless through five and a half innings, Baylor threatened in the bottom of the sixth with a leadoff double from Clare Hosack. Kaitlyn Thumann came in to pinch run , but Kayce Walker and Kathy Shelton each struck out swinging for two outs. The Sooners then intentionally walked Megan Turk, but got Shelbi Redfearn to strike out to end the threat.

Oklahoma took the lead in the top of the seventh with a one-out home run over right from Keilani Ricketts to make it 1-0. A two-out double from Georgia Casey kept the inning alive, and a passed ball and walk put runners on the corners. Pinch runner Ali Vandever took off for second and Hosack pump faked to second and had Casey breaking off third, but a high throw went to left field allowing Casey to break for home. Redfearn’s throw was in time, but a bobble at the plate allowed Casey to slide in safely for the 2-0 advantage.

Kelsi Kettler came in to pinch hit in the bottom of the seventh and led off with a single to second. Sarah Crockett came on to pinch hit and struck out and a grounder from Jordan Strickland put Kettler at second, but after a steal of third, Kettler was stranded after Sydney Wilson struck out to end the game.

Repka (9-3) took the loss despite allowing just four hits, two runs, one earned, one walk and two strikeouts in 7.0 innings.

Ricketts (14-3) got the win, striking out 14, allowing one walk and four hits.

The Lady Bears and Sooners each had four hits apiece, while BU stranded five runners to OU’s two.

Game two of the series is set for 11 am on Saturday at Getterman Stadium.
