Freshman pitcher Monique Garcia pitched six innings and allowed six hits to go with three runs.

La. Tech scored two runs in the second inning to go up 2-0 nothing. The Mean Green had chances to come back, but couldn’t cash in, leaving three on base. La. Tech scored one more in the sixth inning off a solo home run to make the final score 3-0.

La. Tech pitcher Bianca Duran pitched a complete game shutouts and limited North Texas to just two hits.

Game two:

North Texas was unable to bounce back in the second game losing 4-1.
