Softball drops two at Texas Womans

Denton, Texas - The Missouri Southern softball team dropped a pair of games tonight at Texas Womans University, falling to the Pioneers, 9-3 and 6-2.

Southern (3-9) was down 5-2 after the third inning of game one, but a pair of runs in each of the next two innings for TWU put the game away. 

The Lions picked up a pair of runs in the third in game one as a pair of errors and a double from Jessica Brooks led to runs from both Kelli Bax and Brooks. 

Angie Turner added a solo home run in the fifth adding to her school record total of 20 career home runs now. 

In game two, Southern took a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the sixth inning before TWU (10-6) scored five runs in their half of the inning to take the win. 

The Lions scored runs on an RBI from Dawn Grass and a wild pitch that scored Brooke Hurley. Krista Bomak went 2-4, while Kelli Bax, Hurley and Natalie Nelson had a hit each. 

The Lions will be back at it tomorrow after noon when they take on the Pioneers in another double-header beginning at 2:30 pm.
