GAME NOTES (Gametracker and other sources)
Texas 15, Wisconsin 1 (5). The 15th-ranked Texas Softball team posted its third-straight run-rule victory. The Horns’ offensive outburst marked the third-straight game that UT has posted 14 or more runs. The victory improved the Longhorns to 6-0 on the season and dropped the Badgers to 1-1. Senior designated player Shelby Savony headlined the offense with a two-hit effort that included a career-best five RBI. Freshman centerfielder Brejae Washington left her mark on the UT record book in the win, becoming the first-ever UT player to record two triples in a single game. Sophomore rightfielder Taylor Hoagland extended her hitting streak to 17 games against the Badgers, a mark that only stands second to her UT-record 21-game streak from 2010.
The Badgers scored, top 1st; Kruger singled and scored on Blackshear’s rbi single. The Longhorns answered with three in the bottom half. Hoagland doubled, scored on a throwing error.
