The victory sealed the Red Raiders' second consecutive unblemished spring with a perfect 4-0 mark which included two shutouts.
"Overall, we are pleased with the way we played today," head coach Tom Stone, who enters his seventh season at the helm of the program in 2013, said. "We still have a lot to get better at before the fall though."
Texas Tech fell behind 1-0 early in the first half before Murphy ignited the Red Raider comeback. Murphy found Haagmsa off a well-placed corner kick who punched in Tech's first goal and tied the match at 1-1 heading into the halftime break.
"We were battling against the wind in the first 20 minutes when Baylor was all in our end, but we were able to settle down," Stone said. "Briana Rohmer led the charge up top for us, and we really got back into it on Haagsma's goal."
The Red Raiders then took a 2-1 lead when Murphy the struck the game-winner into the upper corner from 30-yards out.
Texas Tech went 16-6-1 in 2012 breaking the school record for single-season wins and advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
