Last week: The Tigers took Game 1 of their first Southeastern Conference series, defeating No. 7 Texas A&M 2-0 after a walk-off home run by sophomore Kelsea Roth. The Aggies responded with four home runs Saturday in an 11-3 Missouri loss.
Senior Jenna Marston walked for the 115th time Saturday in her Tigers career, tying Jen Bruck on the all-time Missouri career walks list. Senior Nicole Hudson's two walks of the series puts her close behind Marston and Bruck with a career total of 109.
Pitcher Chelsea Thomas (4-1) is credited with Friday's win and Saturday's loss. After allowing just three base runners Friday, Thomas gave up four earned runs on five hits and three walks the following day.
Game 3 of the series was cancelled because of rain. No makeup date has been announced at this time.
This week: Missouri starts its week early with a doubleheader against Evansville (6-9) Wednesday at University Field. Game 1 is set for 1 p.m. with Game 2 following at 3 p.m. The Tigers hold a 15-0 all-time series lead over the Purple Aces. If Missouri continues that streak, coach Ehren Earleywine will earn his 299th and 300th wins as a Missouri coach.
