No. 1 West Texas A&M swept a pair of slugfests Saturday afternoon at Mustangs Park claiming win of 14-12 and 8-6 over Midwestern State.

The losses snapped MSU's 10-game winning streak sending the Mustangs 20-6 on the season and to 4-2 in Lone Star Conference play.

Sophomore third baseman Kelley Schaefer matched a school-record by going 5-for-5 with five RBIs to pace the Mustangs' 15-hit attack in a back-and-forth Game 1.

WT's Mallory Wyatt's two-run single preceded a two-run blast by Lacey Seidl as the Lady Buffs surged to a 5-0 lead in the top of the first inning.

The Mustangs rallied for five runs of their own in the bottom of the frame highlighted by Courtney Bingham's two-run single down the left field line.

The Lady Buffs regained the lead by posting three runs in the top of the second and maintained the lead throughout the game despite the teams exchanging runs in each of the final four frames.

Alyssa Lemos and Jessica Sipe tacked on home runs for the Lady Buffs while MSU senior center fielder Elena Bennett tacked on four hits for the Mustangs.
