Pitcher Miranda Elish taken to hospital after throw hits her in face in Texas-Alabama game  3 Weeks ago

Texas softball pitcher Miranda Elish was taken to the hospital Friday night after a freak accident during a NCAA Division I Super Regional game against Alabama.

During the second inning in Tuscaloosa, Alabama's Elissa Brown bunted in front of the plate and Texas catcher Mary Iakopo threw to second base to try to get a forceout.

But Elish was in the way, and the ball hit her square in the face. She collapsed and stayed down on the ground as teammates checked on her. She was taken to the emergency room as a precaution.

Texas tweeted during the third inning that Elish was doing fine at the hospital.

"Everything seems to be OK," Texas coach Mike White said later on the ESPN broadcast. "She's hurting a little bit, but she's in good spirits."

Iakopo hit a three-run home run in the third to cut into Alabama's 4-0 lead.

"She's been our workhorse all year, and we're here because of (Elish)," White said. "Nothing better than to see Mary do that."

Texas won 7-5 to avoid elimination and force a decisive Game 3 in the Super Regional series.
