The Cowgirls swept the No. 16 Baylor Bears on Sunday in an thrilling, drama-filled game. The most electric play of the afternoon came from center fielder Maddi Holcomb in the top of the third with two outs.

Take a look:

No. 1⃣ in the field, No. 1⃣ in our hearts and now No. 2⃣ in tonight's #SCTop10!

What a grab by @MaddiRose3010 today!!! #okstate

Immediately prior to this web gem both coaches got into a heated discussion with the umpires over a controversial call at second base. After the long altercation everyone finally returned to their positions, and only two pitches later the Baylor batter sends a shot to center field that had everyone holding their breath.

I was sitting behind the outfield fence in right-center field, so I had arguably the best view in the park for the catch. I thought it was clearly going over, but “Maddi-1” (that’s what teammates call her) leaped up and made one of the greatest plays of her life. Robbing Baylor of the home run and all of the game’s momentum.

Here are a few more pictures:

It was a big day for #OKState as the Cowgirls earned a series sweep of No. 16 Baylor. A key moment was this home-run rob from @MaddiRose3010 in a win that she says gave the Cowgirls their mojo back.

Longtime SportsCenter anchor John Buccigross also congratulated Holcomb on the outstanding play and her place in history.

Love this picture. A photo for forever for @MaddiRose3010. Athleticism, concentration and lots of flow.

The sweep of Baylor gives the Cowgirls an RPI raking of 25 and sole possession of third place in the Big 12. They have a revenge game against Wichita State on Wednesday at 6 p.m., then a chance to take ownership of second place in the Big 12 with a series in Austin this weekend.
