April 22, 2007
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Texas-San Antonio hit two home runs Sunday at Hoya Field to take a 5-2 win a 2-1 series victory over the Stephen F. Austin Ladyjacks. The loss leaves SFA's record at 19-29 overall and 12-12 against Southland Conference competition.
The Roadrunners scored five unanswered runs on a three-run homer in the third, then a solo blast, coupled with a bases-loaded ground-out in the fifth inning. The Ladyjacks responded with a run in the bottom of the fifth. Crystal Dahlquist and Kari Hugie hit back-to-back doubles, with Dahlquist scoring on Hugie's rope to right-center.
SFA scratched again in the seventh. Heather Hebert led off with a single to right, and pinch runner Candise Juarez moved to second on a base knock by Hugie. Juarez took third on a passed ball and scored when Kendal Harper lifted a single into right field. But SFA could not score again and ended the game with two runners on base.
Hugie (9-12) took the loss. She started and pitched all seven innings. Hugie allowed five runs on eight hits and three walks with one strikeout.
