When hits are hard to come by, Texas State pitcher Randi Rupp is put in a difficult situation.

After the freshman allowed two home runs to Texas’ Devon Tunning in the first two innings of the Bobcats’ 10-2 loss to the tenth-ranked Longhorns, it soon became apparent just how important the pitcher’s performance is to the success of her team.

UT sent three balls over the wall and scored 10 earned runs against Rupp to hand the first-year Bobcat her 10th loss of the season.
