Appalachian State Softball Edged Out by Texas State

App State softball dropped its first series game against Texas State on Friday, 4-3.

Kayt Houston tallied a team-high three hits, including a leadoff triple to open the bottom of the first. Sidney Martin followed that with a two-run homer, her third bomb of the season. App State led by a pair of runs after one.

The Bobcats responded with three unanswered runs across three innings, leading to a pitching change for the final three. Sejal Neas pitched the first four and allowed only two earned runs. Kaylie Northrop relieved and tallied just one earned run to go along with three strikeouts.

Houston ignited the Mountaineers with a home run that reached the parking lot to tie the game in the bottom of the fifth. The junior has tallied two homers this season.

Texas State would bring in the winning run in the final inning despite a feisty day by the App State defense, which caught two runners stealing.
