SDSU sophomore AJ Murphy’s bat connected with the softball in the top of the fourth inning for a two-run double, getting both of her teammates home before getting out at third in a triple attempt.

The momentum continued with SDSU loading the bases single-by-single thanks to Alexis Otero, Macey Keester and Bella Espinoza.
