No. 6 Texas-Tyler defeats Mississippi College, wins series 2-1

CLINTON, Miss. -- Sixth-ranked Texas-Tyler closed a three-game series with Mississippi College with a 3-1 win against the Lady Choctaws. Sophomore Vanessa Carrizales had the big hit of the game, a three-run homerun in the top of the third inning.

Mississippi College (5-5, 4-5) got the scoring started in the top of the first, as Macey Lee picked up the RBI on the sacrifice fly.

That would be the only run the Lady Choctaws would score, as the Patriots' (11-1, 8-1) Kelsie Batten and Alaina Kissinger teamed up to give up no runs the rest-of-the-way.

In the top of the third, Lauren Robenalt singled to reach base, and advanced to second with a stolen base.

Whitney Burt then walked, setting the table for Carrizales' three-run bomb, her team-leading second of the season.

Batten finshed the game going five innings, picking up six strikeouts and her sixth win on the season.
