  • Texas pitcher Miranda Elish prepares to throw a pitch against Houston during an NCAA college softball tournament Austin Regional game Sunday

This was a painful victory for the Texas Longhorn softball team.

Texas pitcher Miranda Elish, who was helped off the field in the second inning of Friday's NCAA softball super regional game against host Alabama in Tuscaloosa after taking a throw to the face, is "doing well", according to Texas sports information director Brian Davis.

Elish, who transferred from OR, was taken to a local hospital emergency room as a precaution.

With one out and a runner on first, Alabama's Elissa Brown laid down a bunt.

As Iakopo went to make the throw, the umpire called the play dead after Brown stepped out of the batter's box.

Instead of finding its target, Iakopo's throw instead hit Elish directly in the face, sending her to the ground as anxious teammates immediately rushed to her aid. "Obviously, nobody feels worse than Mary Iakopo but those things happen, it was a total accident and she came out and did it for her team". However, White also said Elish would not be available for Saturday's decisive Game 3, according to WVUA 23. The victor between Texas (46-16) and Alabama (56-8) will earn a trip to the Women's College World Series.

Shealyn O'Leary replaced Elish, who had pitched every inning of Texas' four elimination games in the regionals, as the Longhorns rallied from a 4-0 deficit to extend their season.

Texas coach Mike White told ESPN between the third and the fourth innings that Elish "is hurting a little but in good spirits".
