Missouri pitcher Chelsea Thomas wins SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week

Monday, February 25, 2013 | 4:11 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA – After allowing just one earned run in 14 innings, Missouri softball pitcher Chelsea Thomas was named Southeastern Conference Co-Pitcher of the Week, along with Mississippi State's Alison Owen.

Thomas began her week Thursday with a start against Maryland in Palm Springs, Calif. She pitched two innings, allowing just one run on one hit. With a 9-1 Missouri lead in the top of the third, coach Ehren Earleywine brought in Nicole Hudson to pitch three innings before a 13-1 Tiger lead ended the game after 4.5 innings.

In Missouri's first SEC game as a member of the conference, Thomas pitched 12 innings against No. 5 Florida. She allowed three unearned runs on five hits in the Tigers' 4-3 win. Her 19 strikeouts ties a career-best for Thomas as a Tiger. 

Thomas and the No. 7 Tigers (9-1) travel to Cape Girardeau this week for the Missouri Breast Cancer Tournament, where they play Southeast Missouri State, Saint Louis, Missouri State and Missouri- Kansas City. Friday, the Tigers take on SEMO at 2 p.m., followed by a game against Saint Louis at 4 p.m.
