After a surprising start to the Baylor Invitational Friday night, that included a 1-0 upset over No. 7 Baylor, North Texas was swept on Saturday morning. The first loss came against the No. 2 University of Oregon 9-0, followed by another to the No. 25 University of Tulsa 6-3.

Oregon University

North Texas (5-9) was blown out by No. 2 Oregon (14-0) 9-0 Saturday morning via the eight run rule. Unable to muster the same magic that earned them a historic upset over No.7 Baylor the night before, the Mean Green were held to just two hits the entire game.

Despite premium pitching in Friday’s games, North Texas gave up nine runs on nine hits and two errors. Sophomore starting pitcher Kenzie Grimes lasted more than three innings before being pulled in the fourth. She was credited with all of Oregon’s runs as well as eight hits.

Tulsa University

North Texas rounded out their doubleheader with a loss to No. 25 Tulsa, 6-3. Freshman Monique Garcia tossed six innings in the loss. She gave up five runs on five hits, six walks and struck out four.

Tulsa jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead in the top of the first on an RBI single to right field. The Mean Green quickly answered in the bottom half of the third when sophomore shortstop Kelli Schkade tripled in a run to right field. Junior left fielder Taylor Schoblocher added the first of her two RBI with a single to right field, giving North Texas a 2-1 lead after three innings of play.

After a scoreless fourth inning, Schoblocher drove in another run with a sacrifice fly to left field that brought around junior utility player Spencer Ferrell.

It didn’t take long for Tulsa to answer. Garcia got into a jam during the top half of the sixth and eventually allowed three runs to score on a triple and single. She was pulled from the game after surrendering the lead.

Kee then made the call to the bullpen, bringing in senior Madison Thompson, who was one day removed from shutting out No. 7 Baylor. After working out of Garcia’s jam in the sixth, she allowed two runs in the top of the seventh that pushed Tulsa’s lead to 6-3.

The Mean Green will finish up the Baylor tomorrow with a rematch against Abilene Christian University at 10 a.m.
