Sam Houston State softball couldnt find a rhythm at the plate against the Texas A&M pitchers nor could they quiet the bats of the Aggies as the Bearkats were run ruled 8-0 in their home opener Wednesday night.

With only two hits in the game from Tori Benavidez and Kim Damian, the Bearkats only lasted until the sixth inning.

I think we just flat got over powered, we got up there and took our swings and sometimes when youve got a pitcher like that you cant get behind in the count, head coach Brock said.

Junior pitcher Shelby Lancaster started the game on a good note with no runners making it on base in the first inning. However, she would go on give up 8 hits, including two solo homeruns, accounting for five runs though the start of the fifth inning.

Brock made a pitching changebringing in Meme Quinn at the top of the fifth inning in hopes of slowing down the Aggies. She entered the game with five Aggie runs on the score board.

I was excited about going in and played it like it was zero zero still. Quinn said.

Quinn only gave up one hit in the fifth inning and was able to get the outs needed to end the inning.

In the top of the sixth, Quinn gave up a three run homerun with two outs, ending the game.

The Bearkats were not able to get any runs across the plate to try and force the Aggies into a seventh inning.

We just need to be a little more patient at the plate, cause we are a pretty decent offensive team so were just going to have to concentrate on that, Brock said.

The Bearkats will travel to Southern Mississippi this weekend for a tournament and, according to Brock, there are some positives to be taken form the shutout against A&M. He feels there is no reason why the Kats cant compete with the teams they will face this weekend.

The Bearkats record for the season is 2-4 going into this weekends tournament.
