Bears maul Cougars in doubleheader

Baylor sweeps Houston on walk off single in bottom of seventh; 
UH held to three hits in Game 1

The Daily Cougar

The No. 17 Baylor Bears took both games from the Cougars in Tuesday night's doubleheader in Waco. UH is now 0-6 against the Bears at Getterman Stadium.

With the game tied at one in the bottom of the seventh, Baylor's senior infielder/pitcher Ashley Monceaux hit a walk-off single with the bases loaded to win the nightcap for the Bears 2-1. Monceaux, who pitched an inning in relief in the top of the seventh, also picked up her third win of 2007.

This is the third loss of the season for the Cougars (6-6) that ended in the game's final at-bat. 

Senior Candi Kloecker had a solid outing, scattering 8 hits over 6.1 innings and allowing only one earned run. Sophomore catcher Elaina Nordstrom continues to hit the ball well, lifting a home run over the left field wall to put the Cougar's only run on the board.

In the early game, Baylor's Lisa Ferguson pitched a complete game, 3-hit shutout, and Ashley Monceaux went 3-for-4 with 2 RBIs as the Bears (12-2) easily handled the Cougars 5-0. 

Angel Shamblin (4-3) gave up 12 hits and four earned runs over six innings in the defeat. 

The only highlight on offense for the Cougars was provided by sophomore shortstop Jessica Valis, who extended her hitting streak to 11 games with a seventh-inning infield single.

The Cougars will host their third and final tournament, the Marriott Houston Hobby Invitational, beginning Friday. UH will welcome Iowa State, New Mexico State, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and McNeese State to Cougar Softball Stadium during the three-day round robin.
