App State Softball Drops Third Contest to Texas State

App State softball fell in its series finale against Texas State, 7-2.

After a three-run opening by the Bobcats (23-14-1, 4-4-1 SBC), the Mountaineers (18-13, 1-6 SBC) struck early as well, cutting the lead to two in the bottom of the first. Emily Parrott batted in Kayt Houston’s fourth run of the series.

The top of the lineup did more damage in the bottom of the second. Houston walked before Sidney Martin doubled to bring her home a second time. Martin tallied four hits in the series and has punched 10 extra-base hits this season.

Kaylie Northrop pitched the first five innings and allowed only two earned runs with one strikeout. Sejal Neas relieved for the final two.

Houston, Martin and Parrott combined for nine hits and six runs throughout the series.

The Mountaineers will complete their homestand on Tuesday with a doubleheader against Queens, set to begin at 4 p.m.
