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.
Senior Kristin Nottelmann improved to 10-2 on the season with five solid innings, surrendering just the one run on two hits while striking out seven. Freshman Bailey Erwin came in to record the save, tossing the last two innings while giving up two hits and recording two strikeouts.
The offense scored their three runs on just three base hits, as Fleming, Sykes and Lindsey Muller provided the lone hits for Missouri. Marston walked in all four at bats and added a run and a stolen base.
