Baylor eliminates Mizzou from WCWS with 13th inning walkoff home run

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.
