The Missouri softball team started the 2012 season with 15 runs in two games Friday at the UC-Santa Barbara Gaucho Classic. In game one, the Tigers beat the Gauchos 11-3 in five innings. Later, ace Chelsea Thomas pitched a shutout in a 4-0 victory against the Fresno State Bulldogs.

Senior Nicole Hudson and Sophomore Kelsea Roth led the Tiger offense with three home runs each. Angela Randazzo and Rachel Hay also hit home runs for the Tigers.

In their collegiate debuts, freshman Emily Crane went 1-4 with two RBIs and Sarah Moore went 0-2.

Sophomore Bailey Erwin earned the first win of the season, giving up three runs on eight hits against UCSB. Thomas followed Erwin's outing with nine strikeouts against the Bulldogs, and allowed just two hits. 

The Tigers will play another doubleheader Saturday when they face Fresno State at 1:15 p.m. and San Diego at 3 p.m.
