The Missouri softball team won both its games Sunday at the Missouri Coaches vs. Cancer Tournament at the University of Missouri-Kansas City to finish with a 4-0 record at the event.

The Tigers opened with a 3-1 win over Missouri State, then beat UMKC, 6-0. No. 13-ranked Missouri has now won five straight to improve to 10-3.

Against Missouri State, freshman pitcher Bailey Erwin took a shutout into the seventh inning before giving up a run. Erwin allowed five hits, struck out two and walked none to improve to 2-0.

Jenna Marston, Kelsea Roth and Lindsey Muller all had doubles for the Tigers.

Against UMKC, Chelsea Thomas didn’t allow a hit until the third and finished the game allowing just four. She struck out 13 batters in the complete-game shutout and improved to 5-1.

Princess Krebs had two hits, including a double and two RBIs. Ashtin Stephens also had two RBIs.

The Tigers return home next weekend for the three-day DeMarini Invitational. The Tigers will host Alcorn State, Boise State and Northern Illinois at University Field.
