The No. 22 Baylor softball team (24-12) collected 23 hits to go with three home runs en route to a sweep of Stephen F. Austin (9-23) Wednesday evening at Getterman Stadium. The Lady Bears won game one, 8-1 before taking the nightcap 5-1.

"It was nice to see us come out and hit the ball hard today," head coach Glenn Moore said. "I wanted to see energy and passion, and that is what I got. This is a big weekend for us, and we are glad we get to have it in front of our home crowd."

Kathy Shelton and Holly Holl each recorded four hits on the night, while Holly Holl, Jordan Strickland and Shelbi Redfearn homered for BU.

Game One
Baylor 8, SFA 1

Baylor registered 17 hits and two home runs in game one, as six runs in the first led the Lady Bears to an 8-1 victory.

BU's 17 hits were the most in a single game since April 6, 2011 at Texas Tech.

A leadoff home run from SFA's Bethany Brown put Baylor in a 1-0 deficit in the top of the first, but it wouldn't stay that way long.

Holl would lead off Baylor's half of the inning with a solo shot of her own, blasting one over the right field wall. The leadoff homer was the first time a Lady Bear led off Baylor's first at-bat with a home run since Ashley Monceaux did so on May 19, 2007 vs. Hofstra.

The inning continued with a Shelton infield single, followed by a one-out Redfearn single to right center. Clare Hosack then delivered one of her three hits, a two-RBI double to left center, for the 3-1 lead. Kayce Walker followed with an RBI-single past the third baseman, scoring Hosack for the 4-1 advantage. That set the stage for Strickland's first career home run, as she powered one over the left field wall for a 6-1 lead.

Baylor added two more in the fourth, as Shelton got things going with a one-out infield single and advanced to second on a Sarah Crockett single to center. Redfearn delivered an RBI-double to right center for a 7-1 lead and Hosack added her third RBI of the game on a single to left for the 8-1 advantage.

Courtney Repka started the game, lasting 3.0 innings, allowing two hits, one run while striking out two. Liz Paul (7-5) earned the win, going 4.0 innings, allowing just one hit and striking out four.

Game Two
Baylor 5, SFA 1

Much the same as it did in game one, Baylor trailed 1-0, but came back to score in the bottom half of the inning and never looked back.

Cadie Weaver broke a scoreless tie and put the LadyJacks up 1-0 with an RBI-double in the top of the fourth.

The Lady Bears answered with a pair of runs, this time a two-run home run from Redfearn, her second of the season. Redfearn's two-out homer over left scored Holl, who reached on a fielder's choice.

Baylor loaded the bases in the fifth, with Walker scoring on a passed ball for the 3-1 lead. With two outs, Kelsi Kettler singled down the left field line scoring Sydney Wilson and Kathy Shelton, who each singled, making it 5-1.

Paul got the start, lasting 3.0 innings, giving up three hits, one run, one walk and striking out three, Repka (11-6) came in for the win, throwing the final 4.0 innings, allowing just two hits and two walks.

The Lady Bears will jump back in to Big 12 play with a three-game home series against Kansas (23-10, 2-7) beginning with a doubleheader on Friday at 4:00 p.m. CT.
