The No. 23 Baylor softball team (26-14, 3-8) fell to No. 17 Texas A&M (28-11, 8-3) 3-0 Tuesday night at Getterman Stadium. The crowd of 1,299 was the largest of the season and 10th all-time in Getterman Stadium history.

“It’s frustrating right now, but there is still plenty of season left,” head coach Glenn Moore said. “We just have to keep taking it one game at a time until we get things back to the way we want them to be.”

Kayce Walker collected two hits for the second consecutive game, two of Baylor’s four on the night.

The Aggies got on the board in the fourth when Nicole Morgan and Brittany Walker reached on a one-out singles, followed by a fielder’s choice from Mel Dumezich that loaded the bases. An RBI-single for Taran Tyler made it 1-0, but Liz Paul worked out of the jam with a fielder’s choice and fly out to right center to keep the score 1-0.

Courtney Repka came on to pitch in the fifth, allowing three-straight hits and two runs that included a two-RBI double to center by Cassie Tysarczyk that Walker just missed on a diving attempt, making the score 3-0.

The Lady Bears attempted a comeback in the fifth, as Walker led off with a hit but was retired on a fielder’s choice by Jordan Strickland. With two away, Megan Turk singled roped a single to left and Holly Holl hit a line shot off the glove of the third baseman to load the bases, but Kathy Shelton grounded out to third to end the threat.

Walker led off the seventh inning with a base hit to left center, and after a one-out stolen base to reach second, would get no further.

Paul (8-6) took the loss, going 7.0 innings, allowing seven hits, one run, one earned, one walk and striking out two.

Mel Dumezich earned the win, walking one, striking out eight and giving up four hits.

Baylor have eight days off before returning to host No. 6 Texas on April 18 at 6:30 p.m.
