Senior Courtney Bradshaw posted the game-winning hit in the bottom of the ninth inning to lead North Texas to a 9-8 victory against No. 18 Baylor on Wednesday night. North Texas lost the first game of the doubleheader, 6-1. The Bears lead the series versus North Texas, 7-4, but the Mean Green has won three of the last four. The Mean Green swept nationally-ranked Baylor last year on the road in doubleheader action. In last year's two wins, Mallory Cantler tied a school record with five RBI in the Mean Green's 11-3 five-inning run-rule opening win and then posted the game-winning hit in the 5-3 nightcap victory.
