Slow ‘O’

 
 

Junior Lisa Ferguson and the No. 19 Baylor Bears stunned No. 15 Texas A&M with a one-hit shutout at the Aggie Softball Complex. Ferguson refused to give up a hit until the sixth inning, when Aggie Sharonda McDonald was able to leg out an infield single. Ferguson’s pitching, along with multiple fielding errors by A&M, led to the Bears running away with a 5-0 victory.
“It went inning to inning, which is kind of good because then I’m never predictable, but all my pitches at one point were there for me,” Ferguson said. “I didn’t throw a change up, but every other pitch was there.”
The season series between the schools in now tied at one game each, with A&M taking a 4-3 late-inning win in Waco earlier this year. The win puts Baylor in third place in the Big 12 conference, at 8-5. The Aggies dropped to 9-4 but remain in second place.
“We’ve had some parts of our game that have just been phenomenal, but we haven’t been able to put a complete game together until tonight,” Baylor head coach Glenn Moore said. “I was very pleased with them, anytime you can come down here in this environment, at a great program like A&M, and put it all together.”
A&M pitcher Amanda Scarborough gave up three earned runs on the night, with four strikeouts and three walks on 114 pitches.
“I feel that I threw well, I could’ve thrown a lot better that’s for sure,” Scarborough said, “But I thought that I threw an OK game. It didn’t come out the way we wanted it to, but you just have to focus on the team as a whole, and we didn’t win, that’s what it’s all about.”
With its offense unable to produce anything, the Aggie defense didn’t provide much relief, committing four errors in the ballgame.
“I expect us to be better defensively, and our problem is inconsistency where we’ll make great plays and then we won’t make routine plays,” Evans said. “We really need to do a better job of just taking care of the ball, making routine plays.”
