A home run in the penultimate inning has sent UTSA to a 3-2 win over former Southland foe, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in Wednesday night’s softball game at Roadrunner Field.
Two solo home runs were the difference for the Roadrunners with Tess Soefje and Vivian Tijerna making the vital long hits to help UTSA come from behind to beat the Islanders.
Two errors from UTSA allowed the Islanders to open the scoring, the first coming in the first inning as a passed ball allowed Mickayla Cochran to touch home.
In the third, a two out single put Dani Tefft on base before a throwing error on a steal allowed her to advance to third and then a single saw the Islanders double their lead.
At the bottom of the third UTSA finally got their first hit as Jade Smith managed a single before Megan Low to hit a deep RBI that saw Jade Smith run through home.
Late on Tijerna managed her one-out homer over right-center field to level the scores, before the sixth inning saw Soefje step up, with two outs, and hit her solo homer.
Chelsea Parker came on, and sealed her first ever save, and the first for UTSA this season, wrapping up the win.
The win gets UTSA up to 13-17 for the year, before taking a week off and taking on Houston Baptist at Roadrunner Field for a double header.
