AUBURN, Ala.– A two-run home run by junior 3B/C Angela Randazzo (Poway, Calif.) powered No. 16 Mizzou Softball past No. 20 Auburn, 4-2, at Jane B. Moore Field on Friday, with tough pitching from two Tigers helping head coach Ehren Earleywine’s squad. Freshmen pitchers Tori Finucane (Germantown, Md.) and Casey Stangel (Coeur d’Alene, Idaho) picked up the win (14-5) and the save, respectively, with Finucane tossing 6.0 innings with zero earned runs and six hits allowed.

The Tigers (30-10, 6-6 SEC) were led at the plate by top-notch performances from junior IF Corrin Genovese (East Amherst, N.Y.) and redshirt sophomore SS Sami Fagan (Dunnellon, Fla.), who batted 3-for-3 and 2-for-4, respectively. Genovese knocked around three singles in the win and scored one run, while Fagan hit in two RBI and scored one run.

Freshman C Kirsten Mack (Riverside, Calif.) started Mizzou’s big four-run fifth inning with a leadoff hit-by-pitch. Genovese then notched her second hit of the game, a one-out single down the left field line to move sophomore OF Sarah Moore (Chino Hills, Calif.) over to second base, who pinch-ran for Mack.

After a groundout advanced Moore and Genovese up to third and second base, Fagan came through with a two-out, two-RBI single to left field. With a 2-1 lead, Randazzo kept the runs flowing with her line-drive two-run blast over the left field wall for a 4-1 Mizzou lead.

Auburn (31-10-1, 6-7 SEC) got on the board in its opening turn at the plate after a two-out double landed in right center. The hit brought in an Auburn runner from second base who singled and advanced on a passed ball, giving AU a 1-0 advantage.

AU tightened the game with a second run during its at-bats in the fifth inning, getting a hit-by-pitch batter into scoring position with a passed ball. A groundout and sacrifice fly manufactured the run for a 4-2 score, also the game’s final.

Mizzou and Auburn continue the series when FSN SportsSouth televises Saturday’s game at Noon (available on ESPN3). Mediacom customers around the state of Missouri will be able to find the game on the cable company’s MC22 channel. The series closes with a 1 p.m. start on Sunday.
