The 'Belles played their last home games of the season Saturday, April 12 against Texas A&M-Kingsville at Mayer Field. The two game win bumped up the team's consecutive wins to 13.
"It is awesome knowing that we have a 35-9 record right now," senior Luz'Ce Baca said.

In game one against the Javelinas, the 'Belles started off with a 1-0 lead after senior Morgan Spearman reached a bunt single to score on a sacrifice fly by sophomore Darian Dunn.
Dunn came back to the plate in the second inning, hitting her eighth home run of the season which extended ASU's lead to 4-0.

Head Coach Travis Scott said it was a great day for the seniors to go out and play since it was senior day.
"Every senior got a hit and the senior pitchers got wins on the day so it was as about as ideal as a senior day could get," Scott said.
In the fifth inning, sophomore Ambra Hill scored for ASU to lead 6-4.
Moving to the sixth inning, five girls recorded hits bringing the final score to 10-4. "For a while our defense was mis-communicating for a while and now I think our defense is stronger than it's ever been and we are only getting better," senior Sandra Serna said.
In game two against Texas A&M Kingsville, the 'Belles scored a total of 8 runs. In the fourth inning bringing the score to 13-0.
The Javelinas scored one run in the fifth inning and that ended the game.
