Softball Drops Two To Sam Houston State
HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- The Texas Tech softball team, after sweeping Stephen F. Austin Saturday, dropped both games of a doubleheader, 7-2 and 2-0, against Sam Houston State, Sunday.
Texas Tech led for most of game one, scoring a run in the first and sixth innings for the two run lead. It was then Sam Houston's offense which exploded in the bottom of the sixth, scoring seven unanswered runs and cruised to the victory.
