The beginning of the game started off slow and neither the Bobcats nor the Longhorns scored any runs. The score was 0-0 by the end of the second inning.

However, Texas scored its first run in the bottom of the third inning and was in the lead 1-0 

Two more innings passed with neither team scoring runs, but the Longhorns managed to score one last final run in the sixth inning.

The Bobcats did not score any runs, although they had the bases loaded close to the end of the game.

Throughout the game, Texas State made a total of four pitching changes—with junior right handed pitcher Cam Baird pitching the most innings at 4.2. It was sophomore left handed pitcher Wes Engle who had the one and only strikeout for the Bobcats.
