WACO, Texas (FOX 44) – Baylor softball completed its two-game sweep of Sam Houston Saturday afternoon as the Bears shut out the Bearkats, 7-0, at Getterman Stadium

The Bears picked up their eighth shutout this season as Aliyah Binford and Maren Judisch combined to throw a one-hitter.

After three-straight groundouts started the game, the Bears capitalized and plated a run in the bottom of the first after a single and an error put two on for Josie Bower, bringing home a run on a single.

Binford struck out the side in the top of the second, the second three-up, three-down inning for the Bearkats.

Baylor broke out the offense in the third inning, scoring six runs to take the, 7-0 lead. Emry McDonough got things started with a single up the middle, the first of two hits in the game for her. McKenzie Wilson laid down a bunt to the pitcher to reach first, before Emily Hott tripled to left center, scoring Wilson and pinch runner Grace Powell.

After Sam Houston made a pitching change, the Bears worked through two outs to bring home three more runs on an RBI single from Kaci West and a two RBI double from Campbell Selman.

Katie Ellington singled and Aliyah Binford doubled in the fifth, but no runs came across for the Bears.
