Missouri evened things up in the second on an RBI double by Mackenzie Sykes, scoring Corrin Genovese on the play to tie the game at 1-1. In the third, Ashley Fleming roped a double down the left field line, sending Jenna Marston, who led off the inning with a walk, to third base. Nicole Hudson gave the Tigers their first lead of the day with a sacrifice fly to right field, with Marston just getting around the tag on the play at the plate.
The Tigers added some insurance in the fourth inning, drawing four walks in the frame, three of which came with two outs. With the bases loaded, Angela Randazzo took a base on balls on a 3-1 count to bring in the run.
