TEXAS TECH 1, STEPHEN F. AUSTIN 0
CONWAY, AR – Erin Edmoundson got a quick first-inning lead and made it stand up as the Texas Tech freshman pitcher scattered four hits and struck out seven batters to guide the Raiders past Stephen F. Austin.
Edmoundson (16-11) got the only run she required in the bottom of the first inning, as Karli Hamilton singled to drive in Michaela Cochran with two outs. Cochran reached on a single and then stole second and third; she’d only stolen six bases in 13 attempts on the season.
The Raiders only had two hits overall, as Ladyjacks pitcher Makayla Sikes hung tough, walking five and striking out four batters.
Texas Tech will face UT Arlington or Central Arkansas in the next round on Thursday.
