One day, the pitching was there, and the Texas State softball team won a game. The next day, the pitching wasn’t there, and the Bobcats didn’t win.
Thus, the Bobcats won two of three games at Seattle during the weekend, capturing their first wins in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC). The Bobcats now are 2-4 in the WAC and 7-27 overall.
The Bobcats won the opener of a March 29 double header, 2-1, as Rayn House pitched five innings, allowing only two hits and one unearned run. Delia Saucedo pitched the final two hitless innings for the win, improving to 1-1. The winning run for Texas State came on a seventh-inning solo homer by Katie Doerre.
But the Bobcats lost the second game, 2-0. Ashley Wright, House and Saucedo combined to allow only four hits, but the Texas State offense managed to collect only three hits.
The third game of the series, on March 30, saw the offenses come out for both teams, but moreso for the Bobcats, who claimed a 7-4 win. The Bobcats scored all of their runs in the fourth inning, keyed by two-run doubles by Jordan Masek and Kellie Baker. Masek, Haley Lemons, Coralee Ramirez and Anna Hernandez all had two hits for the Bobcats. House and Saucedo, each pitching for the third time in two days, held it together to help the Bobcats win. The victory improved House’s record to 3-12, while Saucedo claimed her second save.
The Bobcats will play Houston Baptist Tuesday at home (6:30 p.m.).Email | Print
