The Texas State softball team secured a 4-3 victory against Southland Conference leader McNeese State Wednesday night thanks to two freshmen.
The bottom of the second inning proved to be the only time in the game timely hitting was present for the Bobcats.
Braegan Hamilton, freshman center fielder, and Ariel Ortiz, freshman shortstop, produced hits in the inning that resulted in a total of four runs: Texas State’s entire scoring output.
The inning began with a pair of walks to Katie Doerre, junior right fielder, and Danielle Warne, sophomore left fielder, which sparked the early surge. A sacrifice bunt from Sara Rupp, freshman catcher, advanced the runners to second and third base.
