The Mean Green softball team extended its winning streak to six games on Saturday, after sweeping Florida International University in a road doubleheader (6-4, 5-4).

Game one: 

North Texas (13-14, 5-3) was able to down FIU (20-13, 3-5) 6-4 in game one of Saturday doubleheader.

The Mean Green got out to an early 1-0 lead thanks to a home run by senior outfielder Kat Strunk in the first inning. Junior utility player Taylor Schoblocher added a home run of her own in the third inning to make it a 2-0 lead.

The Mean Green held a 4-2 advantage late in the game, but FIU scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the game up. However, North Texas responded with two runs of its own in the seventh inning to take the game.

Game two: 

The Mean Green followed up its game one win with a game two victory, this time 5-4, in eight innings.

Like game one, Strunk started things off with a home run in the first inning to take an early 1-0 lead. But, this time the Mean Green went on to score two more runs in the first to extend its lead to 3-0.

FIU scored two runs in the third inning to make it a 3-2 game, but junior infielder Kelli Schkade hit a solo homer in the fifth inning to make it 4-2.

The Panthers scored two runs in the sixth inning to knot everything up at 4-4, and, after no one scored in the seventh inning, the game went to extra inning. But in the top of the eighth inning, senior infielder Dani Hoff hit a solo home run of her own to give the Mean Green a 5-4 lead. Sophomore pitcher Kenzie Grimes held FIU scoreless in the bottom of the eighth to give the Mean Green the win.

The Mean Green and FIU will play game three of this series Sunday at noon in Miami, Florida.
