Texas vs North Texas
Texas Softball faced off with North Texas earlier this week. The Longhorns beat North Texas 6-0 at home, bouncing back from losing a series against Iowa State. It was refreshing to see the Longhorns put together such a dominating performance both in the field and at bat. Pitcher Erica Wright threw 6 innings and accumulated 6 strike outs. Brooke Bolinger closed the game out with 1 inning pitched and 2 strike outs.
Texas vs Kansas
Texas Softball traveled to Lawrence Kansas to play the Jayhawks in a 3 game series. Texas was able to beat Kansas in the first to games. During the double header on Friday, the Longhorns shut out Kansas completely, beating them 10-0 the first game and 2-0 the second game. It was a solid performance from the Horns and a good stepping stone from the Texas game. Texas seems to be gaining some traction after the upsettings Iowa State series, and the Horns are now putting together some big time wins. Offensively, Texas was able to do what they wanted with Kansas, and even put up a pair of home runs. Defensively Texas was also on point. They made Kansas earn everything, and did not give them much hope. The final game will be rescheduled for Sunday due to a heavy rain forecast. However, if Texas keeps up their recent trend, they should not have an issue with the final game of the series. Texas has an overall record of 28-20 as they go into the game this Sunday.
