Appalachian State Softball Falls to Texas State

App State softball dropped the middle game of the series against Texas State on Saturday, 3-1.

The Mountaineers (18-12, 1-5 SBC) allowed no runs after the first inning, but the Bobcats (22-14-1, 3-4-1 SBC) matched that, allowing only one run in the third by Kayt Houston.

After the successful first inning by Texas State, Delani Buckner retired 12 of the next 13 batters, erasing the Bobcat momentum and allowing the Black and Gold to come within two. Buckner pitched all seven innings and struck out three batters.

In the bottom of the third, Sidney Martin followed Houston’s single with an RBI single to right field. App State’s leadoff pair have combined for six hits and four runs over the series so far.

Emily Parrott added a hit in her second consecutive start.

These two squads will play their series finale on Sunday at noon. The Mountaineers will complete their homestand on Tuesday with a doubleheader against Queens.
