The Missouri softball team used a five-run second inning to beat Texas A&M 6-5 on Saturday in College Station, Texas.

The victory evens the three-game series. The Tigers fell 2-1 Friday to the No. 19 Aggies. The third game is set for noon Sunday.  

No. 10 Missouri (23-4, 4-1 in the Big 12 Conference) sent 10 batters to the plate in the second on Saturday, collecting four hits, all coming with two outs. Kelsea Roth and Corrin Genovese both had two hits in the game, Roth and Jenna Marston both had a pair of RBIs.

Starting pitcher Kristin Nottelmann earned the victory to improve to 8-2 this season. Chelsea Thomas came on in the seventh to earn the save, her first of the season.

Friday's loss ended Missouri's 17-game winning streak. After Texas A&M scored two runs in the first inning, Missouri could only manage one run in the fourth on doubles from Genovese and Roth.

Thomas suffered the loss on the mound. She struck out five but let up a two-run home run to Aggies' pitcher Mel Dumezich in the first.
