The ASU softball team on April 12-13 won two of three games against the Texas A&M University-Kingsville Javelinas.
In game one, the Belles won 7-6. 

ASU started the game trailing 6-1 early, but the Belles came back to the plate and scored three runs in both the third and seventh innings to win.
Sophomore Hatty Shope was the first Belle to get on the board with a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning.
Three RBIs came in the third inning to bring the Belles within two runs.

In the seventh inning, the comeback started with freshman Avery Zeigler’s RBI triple, which led to freshman Ashlyn Lerma hitting a bunt to score her teammate and tie the game.

Senior Taegan Kirk tied the ASU career doubles record at 65 with a hit into the gap to walk it off.
Junior Victoria Vasquez came onto the mound in the second inning to relieve sophomore Makayla Corbin. 
Vasquez finished the final 5.2 innings of the game with only three hits, three walks and three strikeouts to end the game with a win.
In the second game of the doubleheader on Friday, the Belles lost 7-3.

TAMUK scored in the first, second, third and seventh inning to clinch the game.
Lerma had a 2-3 showing with a run and was 4-5 at the plate on the day.
Senior Taylor Fogle and Zeigler also had two solo shots each. 

In game three, ASU took the series finale 8-5 during Senior Day for the final Lone Star Conference home game of the season for the Belles.
Freshman Logan Graham finished the game with a 2-3 line while collecting four RBI and her first career home run.
The Belles were the first to score when Graham brought in Zeigler and junior Jade Strother in the bottom of the second.
In the third inning, junior Karina Rocha hit a grand slam that was followed by a two-run hit to left center field to conclude the game. 
The Belles will have the Lone Star Conference tournament on May 3-4, with their opponents yet to be announced.
