The home run was Hayward's fifth of 2013 and the run scored pushed her team-leading total to 54.
Bryana Walker earned her second win of the Super Regional. She pitched two innings in Thursday's win and was brilliant on Friday, allowing just two hits before giving way to Kaitlin Inglesby in the sixth with two on and no one out. Inglesby retired the Tigers in order to notch her second save of 2013.
Over her two games Walker pitched seven-plus innings and allowed just two hits.
Chelsea Thomas took the loss despite giving up just one run. She allowed that leadoff homer and just one hit the rest of the way, a single in the third. The senior fell to 24-6 on the season.
Thomas dropped the game despite allowing just two hits. This game marked the seventh time in 2013 she allowed two hits or less over at least seven innings.
Emily Crane hit safely in her 11th consecutive game. She had a double in Thursday night's game before her single in the sixth. The freshman also reached base safely in her 16th consecutive contest, which ranked fourth on the team in 2013.
Thomas concluded her decorated Tiger career as Mizzou's career wins (111) and strikeouts (1,174) leader. She also ranks tied for third in career appearances (159), third in complete games (97), innings pitched (926.0) and shutouts (46), fourth in win-loss percentage (.782).
