COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The Wisconsin softball team showed no rust from its 11-day break as it opened play at the Texas A&M Invitational with a 3-1 win over Texas A&M Corpus Christi Friday morning at the Aggie Softball Complex in College Station, Texas.

 Fast Facts
• Stewart strikes out a career-high 10 batters
• Badgers score three runs on seven hits
• UW plays No. 13 Texas A&M at 5:15 p.m.

Senior Stephanie Peace kicked off the three-day tournament with a double, advanced to third on a ground out by Maria Van Abel and quickly scored on an Islanders' error to plate the Badgers' (5-5) first run.

The Islanders (3-12) took advantage of a leadoff walk in the top of the third to tie the game, 1-1. After retiring the first six batters in a row, UW starter Taylor-Paige Stewart issued a free base to Hayley Galloway. Galloway advanced to third on a double by Natalie Zarzabal and eventually scored on a sacrifice fly to center field.

The game remained knotted at 1-1 until the bottom of the fifth inning when the Badgers put together three hits to score two runs and take a 3-1 lead.  

Peace again led the charge, this time with a leadoff single through the left side. Peace moved second on a bunt single by Van Abel before both runners scored on a double to left-center by Michelle Mueller.

The Islanders threatened in the top of the seventh with runners on corners and the go-ahead run at the plate, but a strikeout ended the scoring threat and the game.

Stewart picked up her second win of the season in 7.0 innings of work. The sophomore allowed four hits and one earned run while striking out 10 and walking four.

Peace led the Badgers' offense with two hits and two runs. Mueller chipped in two RBI and Van Abel plated a run.

Wisconsin continues play at the Texas A&M Invitational at 5:15 p.m. against No. 13 Texas A&M.
