No. 18 Baylor jumped ahead early and kept No. 22 Liberty at arm's length the rest of the way in Sunday's second game of the Puerto Vallarta College Challenge.
The Bears (3-1) jumped ahead by five runs in the top of the second inning. Hannah Smith, Josie Bower and Nicky Dawson each hit RBI singles, and two more runs came across on an error.
In the seventh, freshman Kassidy Krupit hit a solo home run, and Baylor pitchers Madison Lindsey and Regan Green combined to allow five hits with two walks and two strikeouts.
Liberty (1-3) used three pitchers to get through the second inning; Jaclyn Amader put the Flames on the board in the third inning with a two-out RBI single.
