Two of the the six runs went down as unearned.

With the 6-0 lead, TTU added a run in both the third and fourth innings to extend out to a mercy rule eight run lead. The Mocs wouldn't have any answers as they only recorded four hits while leaving six on base in the loss. Of the four hits, two of them came from the first two batters of the first, an Amy Lewis double and a Hayleigh Weissenbach infield single.

Weissenbach finished 2-for-3 at the plate while Lewis was 1-for-2 with a walk. Aly Walker picked up the other hit with a line drive single through the left side as she concluded 1-for-2.

Celie Hudson (3-6) took the loss in the circle as she tossed 5.0 innings and allowed eight hits, eight runs (six earned) while walking a career-high seven and striking out six.
