COMMERCE, Texas – Back on the road two days after playing in Jefferson City, Missouri, the Missouri Western softball team lost both games of a doubleheader at No. 11 Texas A&M-Commerce 10-2 and 12-1.

The Griffon fall to 6-15 this season, while Commerce is now 19-3.

Despite out-hitting the No. 11-ranked team in the nation in game one, the Griffons fell 10-2 in five innings. Missouri Western had six hits in the game to Texas A&M-Commerce’s five and weren’t charged with an error in the first game, but 10 walks and four hit batters by pitchers Kenzie Hilzer (4-7) and Kaili Hinds helped the home team to a lopsided victory.

Shelby Uhl went 2-for-3 in game one with an RBI. Rebekah Mueller hit her fifth home run of the season and went 2-for-2 with two runs scored. Lonnie Groves also went 2-for-2 in game one.

A six-run second inning in game two propelled Texas A&M-Commerce to a 12-1, five-inning victory. Missouri Western managed two hits and committed four errors in the game.

The Griffons stay in the Lone Star state with a doubleheader at Texas Woman’s University on Tuesday at 11 a.m.
