Recap |  Box Score

• With the loss, Baylor improves to 19-10 all-time against Texas Tech, including a 15-4 mark when playing in Lubbock.
• The Bears have now won 12 of the past 13 games played in Lubbock as Baylor entered the series having won 11-straight.
• With the loss, Tech head coach Shanon Hays dropped to 2-4 all-time against Baylor.

• With the loss, the Red Raiders are now 8-10 against the top 25 this year with a 6-8 mark during Big 12 play.
• The loss also dropped Tech to 3-3 in the middle game of a series. It marked the second-straight series where the Red Raiders have lost the middle game.
• The Red Raiders also dropped to 11-4 when playing on Saturday and 6-6 during the month of April.
• Baylor's four-run first inning marked the most given up by Tech in the opening frame this season. Oklahoma was the last team to open a game with four runs as the Sooners put six across on April 22 last year.
• Tech is now 6-7 on the year when its opponent scores in the first inning and 7-9 when its opponent scores first.
• Baylor's two home runs in the game marked only the fifth time this season a Tech opponent has done so. Missouri was the last team to do so in the second game of an April 14 doubleheader.
• Baylor's eight runs in the game marks the fourth time this week and the seventh time this season that an opponent has scored at least six runs in a game.
• Tech enters the year 5-2 in series finales and 3-2 in Big 12 play.
Adriana Perez' grand slam in the fifth was the 59th home run for Tech this year, snapping last year's single-season school record of 58. This is the third-straight year where the home run record has been broken.
• The Red Raiders have now hit 156 home runs under head coach Shanon Hays, which is more than Tech's total of 135 from the six seasons prior to his arrival.
• Tech came into the game 27-4 when hitting at least one home run. The Red Raiders are also 1-4 when giving up two or more home runs this year as well.
• The bottom four hitters in Tech's lineup combined to go 1-for-11 at the plate in the game.

Adriana Perez
• Perez connected on her team-leading 15th home run of the year with a grand slam in the fifth inning. She is now just one home run shy of Sandy James' single-season school record from a year ago.
• Perez' grand slam was the second for a Red Raider this week and the third of the year. Mikey Kenney also went deep with a grand slam in Wednesday's come-from-behind victory of Texas A&M.
• The home run also moves Perez in a tie with Kelly Rhyne (2003-05) for 10th all-time in the school record book as well.
• The performance marked her team-leading 14th multiple-RBI game of the season as Perez finished 1-for-3 at the plate.
• She now has 52 RBI on the year which currently ranks fifth in the Tech single-season record book. She needs three more to tie Logan Hall and Cydney Allen's totals from a year ago that are currently ranked third all-time.

Emily Bledsoe
• Bledsoe finished 1-for-1 at the plate after being walked twice and also hit by a pitch. She singled to start the seventh inning.
• With her two walks, Bledsoe is now the all-time leader in the category as the senior has totaled 80 over her four-year career. She passed Paula Workman who walked 78 times from 1997-2000.
• Bledsoe has now been plunked by 12 pitches this year, the most for a Tech player since Robyn Wike was hit by 16 during the 2007 season.

Kermitria Ward
• Ward made only her third appearance in the circle this year and her first since Manhattan in the second game of a March 17 doubleheader.
