Jayhawk softball slams Bears, 6-1


— Freshman Chanin Naudin hit her first career grand slam and the Kansas University softball team upset No. 25 Baylor, 6-1, in the final game of a three-game series on Saturday at Getterman Stadium.

Naudin’s slam, which came in the second inning, helped build a lead early and fellow KU freshman Alicia Pille held off the Bears on defense and picked up the win. Pille (12-6) pitched all seven innings, striking out six and allowing just one run despite giving up eight hits.

Hull had a perfect 3-for-3 day at the plate and doubled.

Baylor starting pitcher Courtney Repka took the loss, giving up six runs (two earned) on seven hits and zero strikeouts in 1 2/3 innings.

The Jayhawks (24-12 overall, 3-9 Big 12) will begin a 13-game homestand at 5 p.m. Wednesday by hosting the Wichita State Shockers for a doubleheader.
