Columbia, Mo. -Increasing its win streak to six straight games, the Missouri softball team notched back-to-back victories over South Dakota State and Boston University in day two of the Tiger Invitational held in the Dan Devine Pavilion. Missouri earned its first win of the day, 3-1, over the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State, while junior third baseman Lindsey Ubrun (Riverside, Calif.) helped the Tigers to their 7-6 win over Boston University with her seventh inning solo home run to right center.
Missouri's longest win streak since its eight game stretch March 24 through April 15, 2007, the Tigers managed nine hits in each of today's games and move to a perfect 4-0 in the three-day tournament.
Junior second baseman Andee Allen (Barnhart, Mo.) finished the day 5-for-7 with two doubles, one in each of Missouri's games. Allen scored the Tigers' second run of game two on right fielder Kathryn Poet's (Tujunga, Calif.) single up the middle. Through four games, Allen is averaging .385.
Leadoff batter Rhea Taylor (Buford, Ga.) is now 23-of-24 on stolen bases, accounting for nearly half of Missouri's 54 stolen bags on the season. Taylor stole three bases between the two games and is a perfect 10-of-10 in the tournament. Credited with two of Missouri's three runs in the Tiger's 3-1 win over South Dakota State, Taylor scored first on Ubrun's sacrifice fly to right field in the third inning and again on senior Amanda Renth's (Mascoutah, Ill.) single to left field.
Ubrun, who gave Missouri its game-winning home run against Boston University was credited with four RBI on the day.
Junior Stacy Delaney (Freeland, Mich.) took the win in Missouri's game against South Dakota State and improved to 6-2. Delaney has now won five straight games and has struck out 26 batters in 14 innings of work. Delaney, a right-handed pitcher, allowed only one run on five hits and struck out 12 Jackrabbits. To date, Delaney owns a 0.75 ERA.
Jen Bruck (St. Peters, Mo.) made her seventh start of the season and was credited with her third win of the season while sophomore lefty Jana Hainey (Raymore, Mo.) earned her first save of the season. Bruck threw six innings and gave up six runs, only one earned, on five hits. Hainey entered the game in the seventh and held the Terriers hitless, forcing back-to-back fly outs and striking out designated player Tyler Benson to end the game.
Missouri and Boston University will meet for the third time of the tournament Sunday, March 2 at 9 a.m. (CT). Game day location has yet to be determined. Fans should stay tuned to www.mutigers.com for the location of the morning meeting.
