Alicia Hollowell (13-1) and Megan Gibson (9-2) engaged in a pitcher’s duel, as the game remained scoreless through the first five innings. Although
Hollowell, who had given up just one hit to A&M in her two previous starts against the Aggies, surrendered a solo home run by Jamie Hinshaw in the top of the sixth for the game’s first run. A&M’s, 1-0, lead was just the third time UA found itself trailing all season.
Caitlin Lowe led off the game with a bunt single and stole one of her three bases in the game, but was left stranded at third. Two innings later, Lowe reached third again but did not come around to score.
In the seventh, Taryne Mowatt became UA’s first pinch hitter of the year, as she hit for Callista Balko. Mowatt worked the count to 2-1 but flied out to left field, a few feet short of the warning track. Adrienne Acton fouled off several pitches, before lining out to center. With two out in the seventh, Lowe flied out to left.
