The Missouri softball team continued to use power hitting to beat Iowa State 8-0 in a run-rule shortened game Saturday in Ames, Iowa.

Kelsea Roth hit her second home run in two days with a first-inning grand slam to send the Tigers on their way to a decisive victory in the second game of their weekend series against the Cyclones.

Mackenzie Sykes hit a two-run home run in the second inning, and Missouri tallied 13 hits to improve to 36-10 overall and 13-7 in Big 12 Conference play. The Tigers recorded three home runs in a 9-0 victory Friday in the series opener.

Missouri senior pitcher Kristin Nottelmann (12-3) took a perfect game into the fifth inning, allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out two in her fifth shutout of the season.

The Tigers will try for the sweep in a game set for noon in Ames.
