In the sixth, Sarah Hudek laced a leadoff double to right and advanced to third on a Samantha Show sacrifice bunt.

Texas State scored in the first inning on a Corrina Liscano bases-loaded walk.

Samantha Show notched her 18th victory of the season, tossing a six-hit complete game with three strikeouts. Texas State’s Randi Rupp was saddled with the loss to move to 28-10.

The Aggies outhit the Bobcats, 11-6, marking the 18th game this season the Maroon and White have recorded 10 or more hits. Milligan led the team with a season-high three hits, while Alderink, Ashley Walters and Hudek each had two.
