OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Holly Holl lined a shot over the left-field
fence with two outs in the 13th inning, lifting Baylor to a 1-0
victory over Big 12 rival Missouri on Saturday night in the Women's
College World Series.
Holl smashed an 0-2 pitch from Chelsea Thomas (32-8) that barely
cleared the top of the wall to end a classic pitchers' duel.
Whitney Canion (31-11) allowed only two singles while going the
distance for Baylor (47-14), which has scored its only two runs at
the World Series on walk-off home runs in extra innings. The Bears
will play top-seeded Arizona State on Sunday.
Thomas struck out a career-high 19 - one shy of the World Series
record - before finally giving up Holl's second home run on her
283rd pitch of the day. Thomas had already thrown a complete game
to stave off elimination for the Tigers.
