Roth followed with a solo shot, her fifth of the year, and Hudson’s seventh home run of the year made it 7-0.

Missouri extended their lead to 9-0 in the fifth inning with a two-run home run by Rachel Hay. Princess Krebs drew a leadoff walk ahead of Hay, who launched her second home run of the season.
Pitcher Chelsea Thomas dominated, throwing the first four innings and recording 11 of her 12 outs by strikeout. She surrendered one walk and allowed two hits. Bailey Erwin threw the last inning, working around two singles and recording a strikeout.
Hudson led the offense, going 2-for-2 with the home run and three RBI. Hay and Fleming added two RBI each, while Marston, Fleming and Roth each scored twice. As a team, the Tigers drew eight walks and struck out twice.
