After a rocky start to their season, the Mustangs swept the Oklahoma Panhandle Aggies with Erin Knox pitching a two-hit shutout game, followed by the second game win at 8-4.

Leading off the game in the bottom of the first, Erin Knox hit an RBI into left field, allowing Lauren Lindgren to score. In the following four innings, both teams suffered a dry spell as neither team scored. The Mustangs scored its second and final run in the sixth inning on a two-out RBI single for Kelcee Thompson, scoring Taylor Bermudeswho, bringing the game to a close.

Continuing their lead, in the second game Knox scored in the bottom of the first off a hit from Carli Woolsey. However, in the second and third innings, the Aggies shot into the lead bringing the score to 4-1.  

Not backing down, during the sixth inning the Mustangs secured the double-header win, scoring seven runs on five hits. The Mustangs put more runners on after a Brintzenhoff double and another hit by Thompson. Woolsey then followed with an RBI single to right field tying the game at 4-4.

Taylor Mordecai brought the Mustangs in front with an RBI single up the middle forcing a pitching change.

The Mustangs continued its spree with a walk for Amanda Thomas, loading the bases, allowing for another run for a 6-4 lead. Lindgren capped off the comeback with a two-RBI single through the left side, giving the Mustangs an 8-4 win.

This double win brings the season record to five losses and three wins.
