Bobcat softball faces elimination Friday


Rain in Louisiana has extended the Texas State softball season for at least another day. But if the Bobcats still want to be alive on Saturday, they need a win today. Twice.

The Bobcats will play Louisiana Tech in the loser’s bracket of the Western Athletic Conference softball tournament in Ruston, LA (11:30 a.m.). The two teams were to meet Thursday, but the game was postponed because of rain.

The Bobcats lost their tournament opener Wednesday to Texas-San Antonio (UTSA), which beat them three times during the regular season in San Marcos. The Roadrunners posted five runs in the third inning and cruised to a 6-0 win.

Brooke Baker and Kelli Baker each had two of Texas State’s seven hits.

A victory for the Bobcats against Louisiana Tech would put them in the next round of the loser’s bracket later today against Texas-Arlington (UTA), which eliminated UTSA, 2-0, earlier today.
