Charlotte managed a solid come from behind victory against UTSA Softball for a 5-3 win at Roadrunner Field on Sunday afternoon.

Jori Fox had a solid day, going 3-for-4 and driving in all the runs with her three run home run while Nicole Merrill avoided the loss, going just one run and two hits from her five innings.

Through the first three innings, UTSA managed a hit in each inning but they couldn’t score runners, leaving five runners stranded.

By comparison, Charlotte went three up and three down in each of the three innings, but despite the disparity it was still scoreless.

UTSA may well have been the offensive side but it was Charlotte who hit the lead after a walk put Natalie Capone on base before a two-out error allowed Capone to score.

In the fifth Charlotte made it 2-0 as a Chelsea Ingersoll home run doubled the advantage for the visitors.

In the bottom of the fifth UTSA came back and hit the lead as Fox hit her three run home run over the left field wall to give the Roadrunners the lead.

Sitting on a 3-2 lead in the seventh the Roadrunners gave up the lead with a single to plate the runner before a two-run double built the lead up to 5-3.

An infield hit from Joelene Graham put the game tying run up to bat but Charlotte got out of the jam, holding on for a 5-3 win.
