Missouri jumped out ahead in the top of the first inning, getting back-to-back one out hits by Jenna Marston and Nicole Hudson. Marston hit a liner down the line in left field and she streaked into second for a double, and then scored when Hudson pulled a single through the right side. Ashley Fleming then reached on an error, and Marla Schweisberger took a walk to load the bases. Two batters later, Hudson scored when Princess Krebs was hit by a pitch, making it 2-0.
The Tigers added another in the top of the third, taking advantage of a throwing error by the Cowgirl catcher. Hudson led off the inning with her second single of the day, while Fleming walked to put two on with nobody out. Schweisberger laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt, which was thrown away, allowing Hudson to score the unearned run to make it 3-0.
Both teams traded scoreless fourth and fifth innings until Princess Krebs delivered a one out home run in the top of the sixth inning. Krebs sent the first pitch she saw deep over the wall in left field, making it 4-0 Tigers. A two-out double by Ashley Fleming in the top of the seventh tacked on another insurance run for Missouri, pushing their lead to 5-0. Coming into the game, Missouri was 32-0 on the year when scoring four or more runs.
Krebs led all Tigers with two RBI, while Marston and Hudson collected two hits each and scored twice. Missouri looks to complete the sweep tomorrow at Noon CT.
