The Tigers tacked on three more in the second inning to lead 7-0 after two for the second straight day. Ashtin Stephens singled to lead off the inning and Sykes followed with her second home run of the season to make it 6-0. Marston then doubled to left-center field and came in to score on a base hit by Fleming.
Senior Kristin Nottelmann took a perfect game into the fifth inning, before a leadoff single by Tori Torrescano gave the Cyclones their first base runner of the game. Nottelmann then issued a walk to Dalyn Varela to put two aboard. However, Nottelmann got Sara Rice to fly out to right, and on the play, Corrin Genovese cut off the throw in to the infield and picked off Varela for a double play. A strikeout ended the inning and stranded Torrescano at third.
In the sixth, the Tigers added their eighth run of the game on a base hit by Genovese. Brianna Corwin beat out an infield single with two down for her second hit of the game and moved to second on a wild pitch. She came in to score on Genovese’s grounder back up the middle, just past the Cyclone shortstop.
Sykes and Corwin each went 2-for-2, with Sykes added two runs and two RBI on her home run. Marston also picked up two hits and scored twice, while Roth’s four RBI led the team.
Nottelmann threw six shutout innings to improve to 12-3 on the season. She allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out two in her fifth shutout of the season.
Missouri will look to complete the sweep tomorrow afternoon at Noon CT. For more information, stay tuned to mutigers.com.
