admin-ajaxTexas State softball won at home last night 4-3 against South land Conference rivals McNeese State Cowgirls. Ortiz hit a three RBI double in the second to carry on the Bobcats 4-0 in the second inning. Her double was the 15th one this season which is a team high and a Sun Belt Conference high as well. In the top of the fourth, McNeese hit a solo home run on Randi Rupp and later came back in the sixth with a two run shot to make it a 4-3 game.

Texas State was able to hold out defensively as pitcher Randi Rupp earned her 14th victory of the season.. “I think they did a good job. I think we just didn’t get momentum going today. Every time we got into a situation to try to get some momentum going we didn’t execute” said Head Coach Ricci Woodard. Woodard went on to say “we killed ourselves along in a way, but I thought we gave ourselves a chance to win at the end of the day and that’s what it’s all about.”

With this Bobcat win, Texas State is now 20-13 and 10-7 at home. Texas State will now host conference rivals UL Lafayette this weekend in a three game series starting Saturday at 1 p.m, and it will be broadcasted on KTSW 89.9 and check out score updates on KTSWSports twitter.
