After winning the doubleheader on Friday, Texas State was able to complete the series sweep at home against the Georgia Southern Eagles with a 4-2 win. The victory improves the Bobcat’s record to 25-19 overall and 13-7 in conference play.

Despite a 2-1 deficit in the second inning, Texas State added runs in the fourth, fifth, and seventh inning to complete the victory. A solo home run by sophomore ArieAnn Bell proved a turning point in the game in the top of the seventh inning, putting the Bobcats up by 2.

Megan King was the game-winning pitcher, going 5.1 innings to allow one hit, no earned runs and four strikeouts. King improves her record to 16-9 overall. Starting pitcher Dalilah Barrera went 1.2 innings with two hits, zero earned runs, and one strikeout.

Texas State will wear teal on Tuesday in recognition of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Week for a one-game home matchup against Houston.
