KU softball falls to No. 11 Texas


The Kansas softball dropped the second game of a three-game set with No. 11 Texas Saturday afternoon, suffering a 10-1 defeat in five innings at Arrocha Ballpark.

Despite the result, the Jayhawks were treated to an Arrocha Ballpark record crowd of 2,478, which included standing-room only capacity. The previous record attendance also came against Texas on April 28, 2017, when a then-record crowd of 1,492 filled Arrocha Ballpark.

Texas didn't waste time, plating its first run in the first inning off Kansas starter Tarin Travieso. Travieso pitched into the second but found herself in trouble and was relieved by Mills. The Longhorns were able to plate three runs in the second inning.

Texas continued its scoring onslaught in the third, pouring in six runs off Mills and Hannah Todd.

Kansas (15-31, 3-11 Big 12) scored its lone run of the game in the fourth. Brittany Jackson opened the inning with a triple to center field and scored on the next at-bat after a Morgyn Wynne single. Jackson finished with two hits and was the lone Jayhawk to record a multiple-hit game.

The series finale is slated for 12 p.m. Sunday.
