No. 12/13 Baylor softball (35-7, 8-1 Big 12) fell short in a 1-0 decision to the RV/NR Texas State Bobcats (30-8, 11-3 Sun Belt) on Wednesday evening at Bobcat Softball Stadium.
Kelsee Selman (18-4) went toe-to-toe with reigning national pitcher of the week, Randi Rupp (20-5), with the two All-America caliber pitchers locked in a scoreless tie through the first six and a half frames.
With the two pitchers allowing a combined eight hits, it was the Bobcats who finally broke through in the home half of the seventh inning, using a bases-loaded RBI groundout to take the walk off victory.
Selman worked 6.2 frames, allowing five hits and striking out eight with four walks.
The Lady Bears had opportunities to score, with the best coming in the top of the fourth.
Lindsey Cargill led off with a bunt single, with Ari Hawkins reaching safely on a failed double play attempt by the Bobcats.
A fly out by Shelby Friudenberg worked like a sacrifice, moving both runners into scoring position with one out.
That was the furthest the Lady Bears could advance, with a groundout and fly out ending the threat and keeping BU scoreless.
Baylor third baseman Lindsey Cargill went 1-for-3 to set the school record with a 20-game hitting streak. Cargill is one of 34 finalists for USA Softball national player of the year.
