AUSTIN, Texas - Tulsa dropped a 9-1 decision at No. 6 Texas Saturday afternoon at Red and Charline McCombs Field.

The Golden Hurricane (23-7) had three hits in the game, breaking a streak of seven straight games with 10 or more hits. TU starter Lacey Middlebrooks (9-3) pitched 5.1 innings and took the loss. Blaire Luna (11-1) picked up the complete-game win for the Longhorns (27-2).

"We didn't have a lot of balls hit hard off of us, but some things happened and we put our defensive players in a position to play the percentages. They don't always hit to the percentages, and some hits fell in where we weren't in position," Bargfeldt said. "I told the team, sometimes you can't explain everything that happens in a game. I also told them two out of 14 innings (giving up big runs) is not too bad."

Caitlin Everett led off the top of the first inning with a base hit to left field, and then promptly stole second and then third base. She scored on a fielding error at short stop.

The visiting Hurricane had runners in scoring position in the third and sixth innings, but could not score any more runs.

Texas took the lead with three runs in the third inning with five straight singles and a sacrifice fly. The Longhorns added six runs in the bottom of the sixth with four singles, three walks and a final double to close out the game. Courtney Craig and Torie Schmidt each had two hits and two RBI for Texas.

Tickets to TU home softball games are $5.00 general admission and can be purchased at the gate. Youth softball girls are admitted FREE when wearing their team jersey/uniform.
