A tight softball game was blown out in the fifth inning as Texas State used a big fifth inning to seal an 8-0 mercy rule win over UTSA at Bobcat Stadium on Wednesday night.
Siera Sproul was a bright note for UTSA as she managed to get on base in all three innings she came up with two hits and a walk, getting a third of UTSA’s six hit count.
Rayn House put in an impressive shut-out performance from the mound for the Bobcats managing three strikeouts while pitching the whole match.
In the first three innings UTSA managed to get runners in scoring position but for all of that they couldn’t find a run, getting another runner in scoring position in the fifth inning as well.
The first run didn’t come until the third inning when Kortney Koroll managed an RBI single up the middle to bring home the runner.
UTSA should have done better in the top of the fifth as they managed to load the bases but failed to do anything with it and were made to pay in the home half of the inning.
Texas State manged to bring 12 to the plate in the fifth inning which clinched their mercy rule victory with a seven run fifth.
It took just four hits for the Bobcats to score seven runs, with the highlight coming from Koroll, who was sitting at 1-2 but came back and drew a walk, the crucial walk, winning the game for Texas State.
