Head coach Ehren Earleywine enters Wednesday's DH vs. Evansville with 298 wins at Mizzou
March 12, 2013
COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou softball team (10-2) was ranked eighth in the country by both the USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 and ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 polls, the organizations announced on Tuesday.
The Tigers split their first-ever Southeastern Conference games, defeating No. 7/5 Texas A&M by a score of 2-0 at University Field on Friday, March 8 by way of a walk-off, two-run home run from sophomore 1B Kelsea Roth (Yorba Linda, Calif.) in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Mizzou yielded the second game of the series (Saturday, March 9) to the visitors, 11-3, in six innings, with Roth homering again in the contest. The series finale on Sunday, March 10, was cancelled due to rain and poor field conditions.
Two-time All-American Chelsea Thomas (Pleasantville, Iowa) pitched a gem in Mizzou's first contest against the Aggies, throwing a complete game (7.0) one-hitter, striking out 11 batters and allowing just two walks in the 2-0 win. The complete game shutout performance was Thomas' second of 2013.
Mizzou is joined in the top 10 of the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll by four fellow SEC schools: No. 3 Florida, No. 5 Texas A&M, No. 6 Alabama and No. 7 Tennessee. The entire poll can be viewed here.
The Tigers reside in the USA Today/NFCA poll's top 10 with the same four league opponents: No. 3 Florida, No. 4 Alabama, No. 6 Tennessee and No. 7 Texas A&M. The entire poll can be viewed here.
Mizzou continues at University Field by hosting Evansville (6-9) for a mid-week doubleheader on Wednesday, March 13. Scheduled starts are 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Seventh-year head coach Ehren Earleywine enters the two contests with 298 victories as the Tigers' leader.
