The Missouri softball team held off Iowa State 6-5 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep of the Cyclones in Ames, Iowa.

After leading 6-0 into the bottom of the sixth inning, Missouri (37-10, 14-7 Big 12 Conference) gave up a grand slam to Cyclones pitcher Tori Torrescano. Iowa State (14-33, 2-16 Big 12) added a run in the seventh and put the winning run on second base, but Tigers relief pitcher Kristin Nottelmann got Torrescano to ground into a fielder’s choice to end the game.

Missouri freshman starter Bailey Erwin (6-0) earned the victory in her first Big 12 start, giving up four hits, striking out two and walking one in four scoreless innings. Nottelmann earned her first save of the season, giving up six hits, striking out three and walking two.

Mackenzie Sykes and Kelsea Roth each hit doubles and had two RBIs for the Tigers. Corrin Genovese had an RBI triple, and Nicole Hudson had two hits.

Missouri has a stretch of non-conference games next week, starting against Murray State at 3 p.m. Wednesday at University Field. Next weekend, the Tigers play a three-game series at Oregon.
