OKLAHOMA CITY – Baylor softball lost to Iowa State, 3-1, Saturday morning in the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship.

The Lady Bears put a run on the board with no outs in the bottom of the first to take the lead. Lou Gilbert led things off with a walk and stole second to put a runner in scoring position for Emily Hott. The second-year freshman roped a double to center field to bring home Gilbert.

Baylor held onto the lead behind some great plays by the BU defense like a diving catch in center field by Alyssa Avalos and a diving stop at third by Taylor Ellis who made the throw to first from her knees for the out.

Iowa State, however, used a two-run fifth inning to take the lead before adding another in the seventh.


  • Baylor scored a run in the first inning of every game in the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship.
  • Lou Gilbert stole her 17th base of the season in the first inning. That ties her for third in the Big 12 this season.
  • Emily Hott hit her ninth double of the season.
