Approaching a close in the seventh inning, the Bobcats’ hit party began. The seventh inning of this game was highlighted by graduate student infielder Sara Vanderford’s home run, followed by another home run from Randolph to cap off Texas State’s scoring spree.

Vanderford’s home run brought her total to eight, which leads the team in the category.
