Columbia, Mo. - A game in which the Tiger softball team (33-19, 9-2) managed only two hits and made five errors, resulted in a 7-0 loss to fifth-ranked Texas A&M (37-7, 10-4) at home on University Field. Splitting the two-game series with the Aggies, junior Tiger Jen Bruck (St. Peters, Mo.) was credited with the loss after allowing four earned runs on six hits in four innings of work. Two Tiger pitchers combined to finish out the game, with freshman Jana Hainey (Raymore, Mo.) throwing one complete inning and sophomore Megan Dennis (Liberty, Mo.) closing out the final two innings of action.

Texas A&M capitalized on Missouri's most error-filled game of the campaign, scoring five runs in the top of the fourth inning on three hits and two Tiger errors. Not alone in making mistakes, the Aggie offense was credited with two errors of its own in the third and seventh inning, respectively.

Freshman right fielder Julie Silver (Chesterfield, Mo.) came up with Missouri's first hit of the day, breaking up a three-inning Amanda Scarborough (19-4) no-hitter. Silver's one out hit to third base made her only the third Tiger of the game to reach base. Junior first baseman Amanda Renth (Mascoutah, Ill.) knocked Missouri's second hit of the day, a seventh inning single through the left side which sent Silver, who reached first on an A&M error earlier in the inning, to second. With Silver on second, the freshman provided the Tiger's first and only scoring threat of the game.

Missouri will resume Big 12 play Wednesday, April 25, at home against Iowa State in a doubleheader set to begin at 4 p.m. (CT). Live stats and all access will be provided for both games.
