The Mean Green softball team snapped its five game losing streak with two wins against the University of Southern Mississippi, 8-0 and 12-8, at home on Saturday.

Game one: 

North Texas (9-14, 2-3) shutout Southern Miss (15-9, 1-4) 8-0 in five innings in game one of the home double header on Saturday.

The Mean Green led 1-0 after the first inning, but exploded for five runs in the second inning. The team added two runs in the fourth inning to take an 8-0 lead, and after USM couldn’t close the gap in the top of the fifth, the five inning mercy rule gave the Mean Green the win.

Sophomore pitcher Stacey Underwood pitched all five innings and gave up five hits and just one walk.

Game two:

There was more offense on both sides for game two, but the result was a 12-8 North Texas victory.

USM led 6-5 going into the bottom of the third, but the Mean Green scored four runs in that bottom of the third to put some distance between the two squads. North Texas outscored USM 3-2 the rest of the way to secure the win.

Junior utility player Taylor Schoblocher was 2-4 at the plate with 4 RBI. Meanwhile, sophomore pitcher Kenzie Grimes pitched five innings of relief and allowed just two runs to earn the win.

The Mean Green will go for the sweep of USM on Sunday at home. First pitch is set for noon.
