Not long after the third pitch of the game left junior pitcher Courtney Repka’s hand, it was sent over the right field wall as No. 25 Baylor softball fell Tuesday in College Station to the No. 19 Aggies 10-2.

That first inning bomb was one of four for Texas A&M on an 11-hit evening.

Baylor’s two runs also came from a home run.

With two outs in the bottom of the second, A&M scored two more runs off a double to right field to make the score 3-0.

Sophomore pitcher Liz Paul took the circle for Baylor with two outs in the bottom of the third and forced a ground out to end the inning.

Baylor’s first hit of the game came in the top of the fourth when sophomore first baseman Holly Holl ripped a two-out double to left field.

The Lady Bears finally got on the board in the top of the fifth off a long ball to left field by sophomore catcher Clare Hosack, making the score 5-2. Repka came back into the game to relieve Paul in the circle in the bottom of the sixth inning, walking the first batter at the plate before giving up yet another two-run shot to right center to enforce the eight-run run rule.

Baylor’s next plays Oklahoma State at 7 p.m. Friday in Stillwater, Okla.
