— After scoring two runs in the top of the first inning, the Kansas University softball team couldn’t score another as the Jayhawks fell, 10-2 in five innings, to No. 8 Texas on Sunday afternoon.

Kansas dropped to 26-7 on the season and suffered its fourth straight loss to open the Big 12 season. Texas improved to 28-3 and 2-0.

Alex Jones led off the game for Kansas with a single and was sacrificed to second. Mariah Montgomery was walked, and Liz Kocon was hit by a pitch to load the bases with one out. Maggie Hull then doubled to left field, plating both Jones and Montgomery.

Texas responded with one run in its half of the opening inning and then exploded with five runs in the second inning. The Longhorns scored runs in all five innings of the run-rule decision.
