Baylor would trail 4-2 going into the top of the 6th inning, but exploded for 6 runs, making the score 8-4 with just 6 outs left for the Red Raiders
In the bottom half of that inning, Ellie Bailey and Demi Elder would each blast three-run home runs to reclaim the lead and break the program’s single-season home run record, breaking the previous record of 66 set in 2012. Texas Tech would go on to win a bar burner 10-8 to get back in the win column.
