Ashley Fleming had three RBIs and pitched her first career save as the Missouri softball team beat UMKC 3-0 in its last game of the Missouri Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament at Saint Louis University.

In doing so, the 18th-ranked Tigers (11-3) finished the four-game weekend without giving up a run.

Kristin Nottelmann gave up one hit and no walks in four innings to improve to 6-0. Lindsey Muller pitched the fifth inning before Fleming, usually a right fielder or first baseman, pitched the last two. Fleming gave up one hit.

At the plate, Fleming hit a two-run home run in the third inning and a single in the fifth inning that scored Jenna Marston.

Missouri begins a 12-game home stand at 3 p.m. Wednesday when it hosts Arkansas.
