Pitcher of the Week: Lexi Kilfoyl, Oklahoma State

OSU’s ace was dominant in the circle in two appearances against Texas, throwing a pair of shutouts and leading the Cowgirls to the series win over the Longhorns. In two games against Texas, Kilfoyl threw 14 innings, allowed nine hits, no runs, and struck out eleven. In the series opener, Kilfoyl threw a complete game 7-hitter and held the Longhorns off the scoreboard the entire way. She walked one, but gave up no other free passes and no extra base hits. In the series finale, her second appearance of the weekend, Kilfoyl was dominant again. This time, she held Texas’ usually-powerful offense to just two hits – neither for extra bases – and no runs, allowing one walk and striking out four.
