The Texas State softball team recorded 14 hits and scored in eight innings in the 9-0 victory against Connecticut.
The shutout puts the Bobcats one game above .500 heading into Sun Belt Conference play next weekend.
The Bobcat offense started the game with a single from Kelli Baker, junior second baseman. Baker had a game-high three runs batted in. She hit her third home run of the season.
Texas State continued to produce runs in the second inning with sacrifice hits from Kortney Koroll, senior utility player, and Kendall Wiley, junior first baseman. Koroll and Wiley finished with two hits and two runs batted in.
The Bobcats added to the five-run lead with an RBI-single from Wiley in the fourth inning and Baker’s three-run home run in the fifth.
